Oracle Database Appliance Review – Is It Right For You?

Feb 15, 2012

oracle-database-appliance-toronto-resized-152We recently held an Oracle Database Appliance Seminar that attracted a record number of registrations for such an event. Speaking to the attendees provided interesting insight in how different organizations are evaluating the value of the Oracle Database Appliance.

There are two very distinct interest groups within each organization: the Technical Group and the Business Group.

Interests of the Technical Group

  • Support of the entire engineered system stack by a single vendor – Oracle
  • Simplified patching of the firmware, operating system, and Oracle software as a single Oracle supplied process
  • Simple installation and configuration of Oracle Real Application Clusters
  • Ability to consolidate multiple databases currently residing on multiple servers onto a single platform
  • Redundant “everything”

Interests of the Business Group

  • “Pay as you grow” licensing model
  • “Pay for what you need” – The ability to buy a 24 core server but only pay for those extra cores when they are needed by the business processing demands.
  • Hardware CPU processing upgrades no longer require throwing out an old server and bringing in a new one. Simply activate new cores with no outage and avoid needless hardware purchases.
  • Migration of existing licenses to the ODA infrastructure is possible.
