Lightning Flash Server Technology Affects Oracle Environments

EMC's upcoming Lightning launch has huge implications for the Oracle environment. The EMC Live Event on February 6 will provide details concerning this exciting new technology.

For those not familiar with Project Lightning, this press release contains the highlights. Project Lightning is a server-side PCIe Flash card which sits inside the application / database server (or client from a storage standpoint) and works closely with EMC Fast*** technologies to deliver data quickly and efficiently to server applications as needed.

This technology obviously competes with Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator Card. I am interested in discussing what folk's opinion is concerning the EMC Lightning card, how it will perform in an Oracle context, and how you think it will compete with Oracle. Please feel free to comment on this discussion with your opinion on this.

Thanks as usual for your support of the community.
