As the high-performance computing (HPC) community prepares to descend on Denver for SC17 next week, its members will arrive in the Mile-High City with more baggage than the usual rolling carry-on. They’ll also be packing some long-held expectations. One of these is that it’s more or less impossible to create a real HPC system—a massive single system image—in the cloud.  I fully anticipate they will leave Denver with the opposite expectation.

“We didn’t believe it either. But the TidalScale team is not fooling around here.”

These are two of my favorite sentences in Timothy Prickett Morgan’s excellent recent piece for TheNextPlatform in which he details the longtime quest to achieve “a big ole flat memory space that is as easy to program as a PC but brings to bear all that compute, memory and I/O of a cluster as a single system image.”

With the introduction of Oracle Database 12c Release 2 it is now possible to take advantage of the Database In-Memory columnar format, and all of its ground-breaking scan performance, in the Exadata flash cache. Unfortunately there isn't much documentation on this feature (see Section 7.9 Enabling or Disabling In-Memory Columnar Caching on Storage Servers in the Oracle Exadata System Software User's Guide). The following is a description of the different columnar formats available in the Exadata flash cache and how it works with Database In-Memory.

Oracle Exadata Storage Server Software release 12.1.2.1.0 introduced the ability to transform Hybrid Columnar Compressed (HCC) data into a pure columnar format in the flash cache. The process to accomplish this rearranges 1 MB worth of HCC data into a true columnar form and stores the page…

In the previous article, we reviewed several practical performance hints that let us exploit SSDs at their peak. Today you will see how to go further and improve random write workloads of a database by replacing regular SSDs with Intel Optane SSDs powered by cutting-edge 3D-XPoint technology.

What might be wrong with sustained random write workloads on good-old SSDs? Those who read the previous article will remember that regular SSDs have to perform garbage collection routines endlessly by erasing blocks with stale data. Since any kind of garbage collection inevitably leads to performance degradation, SSDs…
