Oracle Goes After Cisco UCS, with the 'Whole Megillah'
"Ellison also announced the new Oracle Database Appliance X5-2, which is powered by two 18-core Intel Xeon E5-2699v3 chips. The servers come with 256 GB of main memory per server expandable up to 768 GB. In terms of storage capacity, the Oracle Database Appliance X5-2 can include up to 16 x 3.5-inch 4 TB drives, which enables up to 64 TB of raw storage capacity.
Ellison also announced Oracle's Big SQL technology, which enables users to take data out of the Oracle Database and combine it with data from Hadoop and a NoSQL database."
A database would run nicely on such hardware :)
