- Virtual Sun Oracle Hardware Tour
Touch-Screen 3D Product Tours
- The Project
Since the acquisition of Sun Microsystems, Oracle has been investing millions in telling the story of the benefits that can come from the integration of hardware and software. Here is an example of the most robust effort to graphically tell that story to date. The Oracle 3D product catalog is available on the web within select product categories, and is also available in touch-screen displays at Oracle HQ, at major Oracle events, and in select regional offices. The touch-screen display is 52" of crystal clear fully rendered Sun/Oracle products, complete with up-to-date product specifications and helpful tooltips to speed the viewer through the major features of each world class product.
The heavy lifting on this project is done by an amazing vendor called Kaon. Honestly, I think these guys must be reverse-engineering alien spacecraft in their spare time. The technology needed to complete this ambitious Data/UI Integration is positively mindblowing.
See the example in the video above - or better yet, check out the "3D" links below for a live sample.
The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) applications, making it the ideal platform for consolidating onto grids or private clouds. It is a complete package of servers, storage, networking, and software that is massively scalable, secure, and redundant. With Oracle Exadata Database Machine, customers can reduce IT costs through consolidation, manage more data on multiple compression tiers, improve performance of all applications, and make better business decisions in real time.
Scalable Family of Oracle Exadata Database Machines
The introduction of Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-8, which comes complete with two 8-socket database servers, 14 Oracle Exadata Storage Servers and InfiniBand switches, extends the family of Exadata Database Machines, offering customers an ideal consolidation platform for very large OLTP and Data Warehousing applications.
Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 (formerly known as V2) includes eight 2-socket database servers, 14 Oracle Exadata Storage Servers and InfiniBand switches, and is available in a choice of configurations that scale from a quarter rack to a full 42-unit rack.

- The web-based UI is slimmed down and works in both portrait and landscape presentation mode - depending upon the display method.
