OOW2011 - Announcing the Exalytics machine

After a long rerun about Exadata, Exalogic and the Supercluster, during Sunday`s keynote, Larry finally announced the new Exalytics machine. Extreme speed, due to 1 TB DRAM (holding 5 to 19 TB of compressed data) and 40 cores of Xeon CPUs. It is using a new version of TimesTen - the in memory database - and/or an new version of Essbase (for OLAP) and a new OBIEE. It not only handles relational and multidimensional data, but also "unstructured" data. You should connect the Exalytics machine to your Exadata machine with Infiniband. Then load (all) data into the Exalytics machine and start analyzing and processing in memory. It uses a "Heuristic Adaptive In-Memory Cache", so data changes are detected and refreshed in the machine. Oracle claims it is around 20 times faster than their current configurations.
