LSI Supplies PCIe Flash for Oracle's Next-Gen Exadata X4 Systems

LSI's Nytro flash accelerator cards have been selected as the PCIe flash acceleration technology for Oracle’s next-generation Database Machine, Oracle Exadata X4. In addition, the companies have collaborated on bringing a new LSI Nytro technology called Dynamic Logical Capacity (DLC) to Exadata customers.

“Oracle Exadata X4 is a fully integrated and optimized database platform combining hardware and software designed from the ground up to work together to deliver maximum performance and value to customers,” said Juan Loiaza, senior vice president for Exadata systems at Oracle. “Flash-based storage is a key element of Exadata, and LSI Nytro flash accelerator cards deliver the performance and reliability that Oracle demands for Exadata. The expanded flash capacity enabled by DLC technology further enhances cost-effectiveness, raising the value we’re able to deliver customers.”

LSI said its Nytro DLC technology can extend the logical flash storage capacity of Exadata beyond the system’s physical flash capacity by leveraging intelligent caching and management software.
