Oracle announces the immediate availability of the Oracle Database Appliance

21 Sep 2011 Redwood Shores - Oracle has made available the Oracle Database Appliance, an easy-to-use, affordable, and highly available database appliance that is built using Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle Real Application Clusters on a 2-node Sun Fire server cluster running Oracle Linux. The Oracle Database Appliance is an engineered system of software, servers, storage and networking that offers high availability for a wide range of custom and packaged OLTP and data warehousing application databases.

Built using the latest release of the world's no. 1 database, the Oracle Database Appliance protects databases from server and storage failures with Oracle Real Application Clusters and Automatic Storage Management, respectively.

The Oracle Database Appliance offers unique pay-as-you-grow software licensing for Oracle Database and related software from 2 to 24 processor cores. This allows customers to align their software spend with their business growth without the need for any hardware upgrades.

With pro-active system monitoring, one-button software provisioning, full-stack integrated patching, and automatic phone home on hardware failures, the Oracle Database Appliance also reduces the cost and resources required to build and maintain a highly-available database system.

Oracle's extensive ecosystem of partners offers customers a wide range of horizontal and industry-specific applications that can benefit from the higher availability of the Oracle Database Appliance.

Additional information on the Oracle Database Appliance will be available during Oracle OpenWorld 2011.

Oracle OpenWorld 2011 is being held October 2-6 at The Moscone Center in San Francisco.

"Companies are spending tens of thousands of dollars and countless hours to buy, build and customize database solutions", stated Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice president, Oracle. "With the Oracle Database Appliance, customers get the power of the world’s leading database in a highly-available system from a single vendor. We've taken the risk out of designing and deploying database infrastructures, which makes it ideal for small and midsize companies or enterprise departments that want higher availability for their application databases."

"Oracle resellers want differentiated solutions that can be sold at volume. By combining a dramatically simpler user experience with pay-as-you-grow pricing, the Oracle Database Appliance plays well in this Oracle reseller sweet spot", stated Judson Althoff, senior vice president, Worldwide Alliances & Channels and Embedded Sales, Oracle.
