HP Adds Oracle Exadata Server

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP (NYSE: HPQ) today announced that it is the exclusive systems and integration technology provider for the Oracle Exadata Storage Server.

This new storage solution is designed to deliver dramatically improved performance for large data warehouses, resulting in speedier decision making for business users.

Running today on HP ProLiant DL180 servers and HP storage technology, Oracle Exadata Storage Server delivers simplified management and storage for Oracle data warehouses, enabling customers to increase the value of their database information and respond more rapidly to changing market conditions.

The Oracle Exadata Storage Server dramatically improves query performance over non-Exadata solutions by offloading query processing from database servers and reducing storage traffic. As a result, business manager productivity is improved through faster access to business information. The storage server operates in an Oracle Database 11g environment running on pre-installed Oracle Enterprise Linux. It comes ready to offload query processing from database servers.
