Using the power of Nehalem for Oracle

At Oracle's Enterprise Solutions Group, we have only just begun to explore the performance and efficiency that Intel's Xeon Processor 5500 Series can bring to Oracle solutions.  We have Xeon 5500 servers in our Enterprise Technology Centers, are testing them with a variety of Oracle products, and will soon put them into production use.  So far, here's what we're seeing:

  • Enterprise-class capacity
  • Superior virtualization capabilities
  • Improved space, power and cooling efficiency
  • Great performance for Oracle software

As we move forward with Xeon 5500, I'll blog about some of the ways we're using the servers, and some of the specific results we're seeing.  I'll also talk more about some of the best practices we are discovering as we deploy Oracle solutions on Intel.
