Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA from Acardia


Fully Integrated. Highly Available.

The Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA is an Oracle Engineered System that saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of high availability database solutions. Optimized for the world’s most popular database— Oracle Database—it integrates software, compute, storage, and network resources to deliver high availability database services for a wide range of custom and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP), in-memory database, and data warehousing applications. All hardware and software components are engineered and supported by Oracle, offering customers a reliable and secure system with built-in automation and best practices. In addition to accelerating the time to value when deploying high availability database solutions, the Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA offers flexible Oracle Database licensing options and reduces operational expenses associated with maintenance and support.

Fully Redundant Integrated System

Providing access to information 24/7 and protecting databases from unforeseen as well as planned downtime can be a challenge for many organizations. Indeed, manually building redundancy into database systems can be risky and error-prone if the right skills and resources are not available in-house. The Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA is designed for simplicity and reduces that element of risk and uncertainty to help customers deliver higher availability for their databases.

The Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA hardware is an 8U rack-mountable system containing two Oracle Linux servers and one storage shelf. Each server features two 16-core Intel® Xeon® Gold 5218 processors, 384 GB of memory, and choice of either a dual-port 25-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) SFP28 or a quad-port 10GBase-T PCIe network adapter for external networking connectivity with the option to add up to two additional dual-port 25GbE SFP28 or quad-port 10GBase-T PCIe network adapters. The two servers are connected together via a 25GbE interconnect for cluster communication and share direct-attached high performance SAS storage. The storage shelf in the base system is partially populated with six 7.68 TB solid-state drives (SSDs) for data storage, totaling 46 TB of raw storage capacity.

The Oracle Database Appliance X8-2-HA runs Oracle Database Enterprise Edition or Oracle Database Standard Edition providing customers the choice of running single instance databases as well as clustered databases utilizing Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) or Oracle RAC One Node for “active-active” or “active-passive” database server failover.
