Not 8 cylinders, just a higher X-rating than the previous X-rated ODAs. In
fact, the X8s are available in -2S, -2M, and -HA. So, if you had one each of
the first two, you'd have the S&M pair. In this light, High Availability has a
whole new meaning, eh?
Hope your Thankseating Day was very happy, too!

I have no experience at all with X8. Does it have 8 cylinders and 4-wheel
drive? Please keep us posted about your impressions. I'm interested in easiness
of patching (12c series with "datapatch" has been a disappointment, to say the
least), monitoring tools, reliability and, of course, performance.
Have a happy Thanksgiving!

However, we're getting two new machines and, guess what, they're ODAs. The
difference this time is that they're X8-2Ms, which have zero Grid and RAC
built-in stuff. They're just SSD storage, memory, and CPU. We'll get them
installed Bare Metal with 19c. They are a well-priced package and we're hoping
easier to support and patch, given their simpler configuration.
