Oracle Database on SSD

 New options for running the Oracle Database on EC2 using SSD storage for your database. The I2 instances feature the latest generation of Intel Ivy Bridge processors - each virtual CPU (vCPU) is a hardware hyperthread from an Intel Xeon E5-2670 v2 (Ivy Bridge) processor. I2 instances are available in four sizes as listed in the table below.
Instance TypevCPUsECU RatingMemory (GiB)Instance Storage SSD (GB)Note          
i2.xlarge41430.51 x 800800 GB of SSD
i2.2xlarge827612 x 8001.6 TB of SSD
i2.4xlarge16531224 x 8003.2 TB of SSD. hi.4xlarge with 2 TB  of SSD was previously largest SSD instance type
i2.8xlarge321042448 x 8006.4 TB of SSD

The i2.8xlarge instance size is capable of providing over 365,000 4 kilobyte (KB) random read IOPS and over 315,000 4 KB random write IOPS.   Great for Oracle databases that have high IO requirements.  This document has more on configuring Oracle Databases on EC2 and using SSD based instances :

    Too cool!
    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme?
    Excellent work!
