Ellison unveils 'Exalytics' in-memory machine - Computerworld

Curiously, none of the Oracle Exa-prefixed products (Exadata, Exalogic, and Exalytics) is built on the SPARC architecture Larry Ellison touted during his keynote last night, in his SPARC SuperCluster introduction – not exactly a consistent strategy

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison unveiled the Exalytics Intelligence Machine, the latest member of the company's products that combine software and hardware, during a keynote address at the OpenWorld conference on Sunday in San Francisco.

Exalytics incorporates an in-memory database, a design principle that will put it in direct competition with SAP's HANA in-memory computing platform. In-memory databases place information to be processed in RAM, instead of reading it off disks, providing a performance boost.
