LSI Expands Relationship with Oracle

Exadata using new LSI Nytro Dynamic Logical Capacity technology to extend flash capacity for maximum performance and value

LSI Corporation on Monday announced that LSI® 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 is taking advantage of Nytro DLC technology to extend the logical flash storage capacity of Exadata beyond the system's physical flash capacity. This unique software feature dynamically extends flash capacity of Exadata X4 systems with the same physical hardware and power requirements for a reduced total cost of ownership.

"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, said Juan Loiaza, senior vice president for Exadata systems at Oracle. "The expanded flash capacity enabled by DLC technology further enhances cost-effectiveness, raising the value we're able to deliver customers."

Oracle selected LSI as its supplier of PCIe flash acceleration technology for Exadata systems after extensive testing and qualification processes. LSI Nytro cards deliver excellent performance, endurance and reliability in real-world production environments and applications ranging from data warehousing to online transaction processing to mixed workloads.

"Oracle Exadata is considered by many to be the most advanced database application system in the world," said Tom Swinford, senior vice president and general manager, Datacenter Solutions Group, LSI. "We're excited to expand our successful collaboration with Oracle on flash acceleration technology and bring the innovative Nytro DLC technology to market."

The comprehensive LSI Nytro product portfolio of flash accelerator cards combines PCIe flash technology with intelligent caching and management software. Nytro flash cards are designed to deliver high performance, reduced latency and a low CPU burden for the most demanding database applications and I/O-intensive workloads.
