    Maybe 5 years ago

    They sorted that a while back as far as I know.

    I'm interested in anyone who's tried these with a SQL server database, I'm going to be installing this on our sims server soon so will let you know.

    Nice to see this out at last as Oracle have been promoting it for a while without any real info. Bit of a shame their 'XX million' transactions turned out to be '7.7' rather than > 10 but it's still a strong move on the hardware front. Hopefully next time they'll get the figures out before running the ads to avoid getting fined by the TPC!

    For anyone tempted by this, the cluster is gonna cost in the region of $18m so you'd better have deep pockets!
