A Technical Overview of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Exadata Storage Server
Businesses today increasingly need to leverage a unified database platform to enable the deployment and consolidation of all applications onto one common infrastructure.

Building or using custom special purpose systems for different applications is wasteful and expensive. The need to process more data increases every day while corporations are also finding their IT budgets being squeezed. Examining the total cost of ownership (TCO) for IT software and hardware leads to choosing a common high performance infrastructure for deployments of all applications.
