Designed for enterprise business analytics and big data applications, the Exalytics platform has been designed to work alongside Oracle's Exalogic and Exadata appliance lines, the Exalytics systems allow firms to quickly analyse and react to business trends and patterns by managing and analysing unstructured data.

The new X3-4 appliance will look to increase the processing capacity of the platform by offering 2.4TB of flash memory and 5.4TB of solid state storage capacity.

In addition to improving analysis operations, Oracle said that the Exalytics X3-4 appliance will aim to increase compatibility with mobile devices by adding support for the Oracle Business Intelligence Mobile HD application and bringing integration for the Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite, Endeca Information Discovery, Essabase and the TimesTen In-memory Database platform.
