The History of Exadata
May 4, 2012 Leave a comment
I’ve been working on a timeline for the history of Exadata, starting with the HP Oracle Database Machine and working through to the X2 series.
It’s interesting to see how Oracle’s presentation of the product has changed over time, particularly the marketing messages.
Also, if you didn’t know better you would probably think that Engineered Systems were something Oracle had been planning for years. But the original plans for the Oracle Database Machine were to allow multiple vendors and ports of the storage software, basically an open architecture.
