Critical Loads Can Benefit from New Platforms to Enable Better Customer and Employee Experiences
This report provides an overview of Oracle Exadata X8M and analyzes its capabilities to meet enterprises’ needs for a next-generation computing platform. Oracle Exadata X8M is the fastest platform to run the Oracle Database, allowing enterprises to accelerate their mission-critical applications. The results are better customer and employee experiences, depending on the nature of the applications powered by Oracle Exadata X8M. CxOs will appreciate that the uptake of the new platform requires no code changes, sparing enterprises expensive quality assurance and validation cycles.
Oracle Exadata X8M is a manifestation of Oracle’s vision for the “chip-to-click” integrated technology stack (that is, from the CPU silicon, across all ISO layers and all the way to the end-user mouse click). As Oracle uses the same technology stack and machines in both its cloud and on-premises implementations, it has the highest degree of identicality across these offerings to be found among all vendors that are part of Constellation Research’s Market Overview on next-generation computing platforms. The others are Amazon Web Services’ Outposts offline portfolio, Google GKE On-Prem, IBM Cloud Private and Microsoft Azure Stack. Constellation expects Oracle to bring Oracle Exadata X8M capabilities to Oracle Cloud at Customer offerings in the near future.
