  12. 12. Exalytics ► Capabilities on both the infrastructure and functional side ► Ranzal has deep experience with Linux, the underlying OS of Exalytics; has installed numerous times internally, as well as for clients. ► We’ve demonstrated to our customers that they can achieve better performance using Exalytics than traditional hardware. In one example, a Process that took 8 Hours to complete took only 1.5 Hours on the Exalytics box. ► We’ve demonstrated we can virtualize the platform using Oracle Virtual Manager (OVM). For example, this allows a customer to share Dev/Test on one box vs having one dedicated one per environment. ► Using OVM a customer can now develop/test a new version of EPM on the same hardware without having to have a costly hardware and install outlays. 12
