His license capacity-on-demand offers the ability to scale from 2 to 72 processors without the burden of the costs associated to hardware upgrade.
The Oracle Database Appliance hardware X5-2 consist of a 6-unit rack containing two servers Oracle Linux and a storage shelf. Each server has two Intel Xeon 18-core E5-2699 v3, 256GB memory and an 10Gb Ethernet port.
The two servers are connected via InfiniBand and share a direct-attached SAS storage with high performance.
The device also provides 64TB of raw devices, four 400GB solid state drives for data accessed frequently and four disks (always solid state) 200GB for the redo logs.
