Exadata Model Comparison

Posted by Vishal Gupta on Jun 19, 2011

Many times i find myself comparing various Oracle Exadata models. It becomes tedious to compare various data sheets for various Exadata models. So i have put together this spreadsheet (Exadata Model Comparison) for comparing various models in one glance.

It gives following details and more.

  • At Exadata level,
    • number/model of compute nodes and cell nodes.
    • number of Infiniband switches and their port count.
    • Key capabilities ( as per data sheets)
  • For each database compute node and cell node.
    • Server Model
    • CPU Type, CPU Speed, CPU Cores, CPU Threads
    • RAM
    • Network ports – type and count
    • Flash RAM (Smart Cache)
    • Disk types

I hope someone will find it useful.
