Technical details on the Exadata Storage Server

On Darrin Leboeuf’s advice, I loaded Kevin Closson’s blog, and sure enough, he had something ready to publish. It must have been KILLING Kevin to keep this a secret. It must be a huge load off to publish this thing. Anyway, Christo has been assigned to study this in detail and digest it overnight. Expect some good analysis tomorrow.

But this post isn’t about Oracle being open or otherwise. This post is about the announcement being made Wednesday. It seems Oracle has a surprise. A pretty well kept surprise. It’s such a big deal that Larry Ellison himself is making the announcement.

Oracle’s Secret New Feature: Educated Guesses

Larry Ellison is announcing a major new feature this Wednesday at Open World. For the first time in a while, his keynote is dedicated to the “database” as opposed to the usual high level ERP/Apps/Fusion. Even the title of his keynote is catchy — “Extreme Performance”.
