Oracle users might want to take note of this little hardware match-up put together by Texas Memory Systems. The Oracle Accelerator Kit brings together TMS' RamSan solid-state disk storage with switches and HCAs from QLogic to provide an InfiniBand-based grid computing environment said to boost performance up to 2500 percent.
The kit comes in three flavors: a 32-GB SSD with the QLogic 9024 switch and a pair of 4x InfiniPath HCAs; a 64-128-GB system with the 9024 and InfiniPaths; or a 256-GB configuration with two 9024s and four InfiniPaths.
The company claims that solid-state storage can accommodate more simultaneous users than traditional disks, while a pre-configured bundle offers expanded database functionality, heightened scalability and simplified management.
With one of the biggest problems of ever expanding databases being I/O bottlenecks, a bundled solution might be just the thing for rapidly expanding enterprises.
