Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine : Analysis at the Speed of Thought

Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine is a combination of hardware and software from Oracle that gives you the ability to deploy fast, interactive and graphics-rich dashboards across your organization with lightning-fast response times. With the interactivity of desktop in-memory BI tools plus the enterprise metadata and management features common to all Oracle products, Oracle Exalytics is particularly suited to customers who wish to:

  • Deploy rich, interactive dashboards featuring the latest visualizations to users across their organization
  • Support large numbers of concurrent users, with no slow-down in query times and a consistently fast user experience
  • Make an existing slow-running system run faster, without requiring lots of IT development time or DBA support
  • Get the benefits of in-memory tools such as Qlikview, but still be able to ensure consistent numbers, definitions and security across the organization
  • Run their Essbase and Hyperion Planning processes faster, shortening planning cycles and making everything in Essbase just run faster

Oracle Exalytics is an appliance-style product that combines hardware and software in a single integrated package. Build on a Sun server featuring 40 CPU cores and 1TB of RAM, Exalytics also comes with the latest versions of Oracle’s BI and EPM tools, with the current (11.1.1.6) release featuring:

  • Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation (OBIEE+, Oracle BI Mobile, Oracle Scorecard & Strategy Management, Oracle Essbase Server)
  • Oracle TimesTen for Exalytics – Oracle’s in-memory analytic database featuring column-based compression and enhanced SQL capabilities optimized for OBIEE
  • Oracle WebLogic Server, and the 64-bit version of Oracle Linux
