This report provides an overview of how the next-generation Oracle Exadata X9M and Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M enable rapid Enterprise Acceleration. It discusses how both offerings have been improved since their previous X8M version and looks at the key differentiators of both offerings overall and what is new with X9M.
Oracle Exadata X9M and Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M are yet another manifestation of Oracle’s vision for the “chip-to-click” integrated technology stack (i.e., from the CPU silicon, across all ISO/OSI layers, and all the way to the end user mouse click). With the availability of Oracle Exadata X9M and Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer X9M in September 2021, Oracle has proven how the approach delivers leading performance and cost savings, making X9M simply the best platform for Oracle Database to run on.
Because 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 on-premises portfolio, Google Anthos, IBM Satellite, and Microsoft Azure Stack.
