in brief Oracle Australia last week announced on Twitter that Commonwealth Bank of Australia would be the first local customer to deploy its new Exadata V2 Database Machine for the bank's online transaction processing (OLTP).

An Oracle spokesperson confirmed the deal but could not provide any further details, while Commonwealth Bank was unavailable for comment at the time of publishing.

Oracle's Exadata V2 Database Machine is a joint project with Sun; the storage solution utilises Oracle's software and Sun's memory hardware to process and store data for a range of applications, including enterprise data storage.
