OLTP Performance: The Violin Advantage vs. Exadata and SSDs

by VIOLIN SYSTEMS on February 14, 2013

Violin's own Ashminder Ubhi, an Oracle expert, recently tested the OLTP (online transaction processing) storage performance of Violin Systems arrays vs. Exadata and SSD-based solutions using the popular SLOB benchmarking tool. Check out Ubhi's blog post on OLTP performance for the full story.
Ubhi's benchmarks highlight how a purpose-built flash memory array can offer benefits over products which are not designed to get the performance benefits of NAND flash technology – especially for an OLTP workload.
