Oracle Releases Exadata Database as a Service

Oracle Releases Exadata Database as a Service

Oracle has announced the availability of its Exadata platform on its next-generation cloud infrastructure, which essentially means the company is providing Exadata as a Service.

The Oracle Cloud infrastructure is a comprehensive set of integrated, subscription-based services that let business run any workload in an enterprise-grade cloud managed by Oracle.

It enables self-provisioning of multiple bare metal servers in less than five minutes, with each supporting more than 4 million Input/output operations per second. It also allows block storage that scales linearly by 60 IOPS per GB, according to Oracle.

The Oracle Cloud offers the following:

  • Elastic compute capacity
  • Online storage
  • Exadata database on demand, on high-performance bare metal
  • Load balancing
  • Developer portal

Exadata on Oracle's cloud lets enterprises run high-demand applications using real-time targeting, analytics or personalization with extreme performance, Oracle said.

Enterprises can migrate mission-critical database applications and data warehouses seamlessly, and develop new extreme performance cloud applications, according to the company.

Oracle "isn't the only game in town, but Exadata's performance, coupled with the Oracle Cloud, which is optimized for Exadata, certainly makes it an attractive option for customers -- particularly those with an already heavy reliance on Oracle," said Rebecca Wettemann, VP of research at Nucleus Research.

"That said, this is a very competitive marketplace, and I expect we'll see more 'mine is faster, better or cheaper' announcements from the other [Platform as a Service] players," she told the E-Commerce Times.

The Only One

Oracle Database is available on Amazon Web Services through Amazon's Relational Database Service offering, noted Doug Henschen, principal analyst at Constellation Research.

However, "Oracle is alone in offering Exadata as a Service," he told the E-Commerce Times.

This "brings portability to the cloud to those running Exadata on premises," Henschen remarked. "It's a higher-performance, higher-scale option for those currently using Oracle Database in a traditional deployment, though some tuning is then required."
