Seems that Orace soon will become Processor vendor ;)



 With every disk comes a multinode processor that performs Oracle Parrallel Queries. This processor receives the instruction to retrieve a certain result set (not raw data blocks). The volume of data being returned through the much wider pipes is actually much smaller, as only the requested data from the already filtered records needs to be returned. The database server combines the resultsets from the various nodes in the Exadata Storage Server and performs any aggregations.

Any experiences/best practices with this toy ;)

Cheers, Milen
