Oracle Exadata X6 
from Acardia

Sized, tuned, and tested for all Oracle database workloads

Oracle Exadata X6 transformative technology, economics, and integration deliver many times the performance of similar systems. You can spend less and do Oracle Exadatamore by using Exadata's extreme performance to create IT economies of scale.

Engineered to be the highest performing, most cost effective and most available platform for running Oracle Database, Exadata is a modern architecture featuring scale-out industry-standard database servers, scale-out intelligent storage servers, state-of-the-art PCI flash storage servers and an extremely high speed InfiniBand internal fabric that connects all servers and storage.

Unique software algorithms in Exadata implement database intelligence in storage, PCI based flash, and InfiniBand networking to deliver higher performance and capacity at lower costs than other platforms. Exadata runs all types of database workloads including Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), Data Warehousing (DW), In-Memory Analytics and consolidation of mixed workloads.

Simple and fast to implement, the Exadata Database Machine powers and protects your most important databases and is the ideal foundation for a consolidated database cloud.


  • Powerful 2- or 8-socket Database Servers with fastest x86 processors, intelligent scale-out Storage Servers with ultra-fast 3D V-NAND NVMe PCIe Flash cards and 8 TB Helium-filled disk drives, high-bandwidth InfiniBand connectivity

    • Most optimal and most advanced hardware architecture for database processing—no alternative will ever be ahead of Exadata when it comes to a modern Oracle database hardware platform.
    • An Exadata system can attain unparalleled levels of database performance, with 301 GB/sec analytic throughput, 5.6 Million 8K OLTP Read IOPS, 5.2 Million 8K OLTP Write IOPS and 250 us I/O latency at 2.4 Million IOPS.
  • Scale elastically from an eighth rack, 2 to 19 database servers per rack, 3 to 18 storage servers per rack, up to 460 TB of flash (raw) per rack, up to 1.7PB (raw) per rack, and 18 such racks cabled together through InfiniBand

    • One unified platform with no bottlenecks, that can start small and grow with your business needs to any scale without any downtime.
    • The unmatched scalability and flexibility offered by Exadata ensures the best IT investment protection for any sized business.
    • Further investment protection provided by expanding older Exadata configurations using new state-of-the-art servers.

    • Pre-configured, pre-tuned, pre-debugged compute, storage and network layers, plus full stack end-to-end management enables customers to drastically reduce costs while improving business agility and time to market.
  • Smart Analytics software: Smart Scan, Parallelized and Optimized SQL Queries, Storage Index, Columnar Flash, JSON/XML/CLOB offload, etc.

    • Up to 100x faster analytics compared to generic hardware—critical business operations and decisions can now be completed with unparalleled speed and ease of use.
    • Complex queries with column and predicate filters, month-end/quarter-end reports, data load, data analysis, data mining, predictive modeling, etc. can be completed 10x-100x faster.
  • Smart OLTP: Smart Write-back Flash Cache, Smart Flash Logging, Fault-tolerant In-Memory Database, Exafusion Direct-to-Wire protocol, Smart Fusion Block Transfer

    • Enables real-time all-the-time OLTP with no hardware or software bottlenecks.
    • Latency-sensitive and mission-critical business transactions across financials, telcos, e-commerce, health-care, logistics, public sector, etc. can be executed at a blazing speed enabling tremendous business agility throughout the enterprise.
  • Smart Storage: Hybrid Columnar Compression, Automated Data Tiering Between Memory, Flash and Disk

    • Reduces space usage by up to 10x for analytics, enables even further compression for historical data that has to be kept online—yielding a tremendous benefit for organizations facing explosive data growth plus regulatory obligations.
    • Exadata achieves memory-level performance using shared flash.
    • Smart tiering of flash and disk gives flash level performance with the cost of high capacity disk.
  • Smart Availability: Instant Detection of Node Failures, Sub-second I/O Latency Capping, Prioritized rebalancing, Elimination of false drive failures, Prevent shutdown if mirror server is down, Confinement of temporarily poor performing drives, Data integrity validation, Automatic disk scrub and repair, Rolling upgrades

    • Eliminates the costs of downtime and data loss such that in the event of any failure or outage, applications can continue business operations with no interruption.
    • Exadata in a Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) configuration is recognized by the analyst firm IDC as a system that delivers at least 5-nines availability and is categorized in the IDC AL4 fault-tolerant market segment, along with HP Integrity NonStop and IBM z Systems.
  • Smart Consolidation: Resource Management and Workload Prioritization from CPU to Network to Storage, Zero Overhead VMs, Snapshots for Test/Dev, InfiniBand Partitioning

    • Enables massive database consolidation or a sophisticated Database as a Service private cloud for the enterprise.
    • Enables 4X more databases in one Exadata system compared to generic converged infrastructure while maintaining isolation across mixed workloads.
  • Smart Cloud: Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service

    • The only public cloud database service that delivers the best of on-premises enterprise systems with all the benefits of cloud deployments.
    • Scale-Out Compute, Scale-Out Intelligent Storage, InfiniBand, PCIe flash, etc.
    • It is 100% compatible with on-premises databases and requires no application changes for easy mobility and migration from on-premises to cloud.
    • It also enables one single unified database cloud service for all database workloads. Exadata Cloud includes ALL Oracle Database Options and ALL Exadata features.
  • Smart Licensing: Capacity on Demand

    • Allows database server cores to be turned off during hardware installation, leaving at least 14 cores enabled.
    • As workload grows, additional cores can be re-enabled, thus lowering costs and aligning costs with business growth.
