Exadata debuted in 2008 as the first offering in the family of Oracle Engineered Systems.

Oracle Exadata Database Machine X8M is the latest release with global availability.

In 2015, the excellence of Exadata expanded to the public cloud with the introduction of Exadata Cloud Service (ExaCS). This is a subscription-based service which leverages Exadata in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). In 2019, Oracle released Exadata [email protected] (ExaCC), which provides a cloud-managed Exadata platform that resides in your data center. ExaCC bridges the gap between on-premise and cloud computing while providing enterprise class performance, scalability, and security. As of 2021, ExaCC customers can take advantage of Oracle Autonomous Services such as Autonomous Data Warehouse and Autonomous Transaction Processing to further reduce complexity and improve time to value.

What is Exadata?

Exadata is a computing machine that comes as a “cloud in a box,” composed of storage servers, database servers, an InfiniBand fabric for storage networking, and everything else needed to run any database. In combination with Oracle Database, Oracle Exadata delivers industry-leading performance and operational efficiency while reducing costs for Online Transaction Processing (OLTP), data analytics, and other database workloads. In particular to revolutionize OLTP, Oracle Exadata X8M comes with the cutting-edge technology, something that was limited only to supercomputers until now, called Random Direct Memory Access (RDMA) over Converged Ethernet (RoCE).

Its unique scale-out design with automated, ML-based management and optimization is used by industry leaders to meet current needs and seamlessly grow in the future. Exadata also simplifies customers’ cloud journey with Oracle’s fully compatible on-premises and cloud solutions from Autonomous Database to Exadata Cloud Service and Gen 2 Exadata Cloud at Customer, and seamless move between them.
