Oracle Intros Lower Cost Virtual Compute Appliance

Oracle introduced a line of lower priced data center equipment aimed at taking on other major vendors in this sector.

"We're going to compete for that core data center business. Our appliances and engineered systems deliver the highest performance by a large margin at the lowest purchase price for the data center core. They get the job done faster, more securely and more reliably than any competitive offering available today," said Ellison. "Our customers want their data centers to be as simple and as automated as possible. With some of Oracle's engineered systems and appliances, you can pay 50 percent less, BUT you have to be willing to take TWICE the performance."

The new generation of integrated appliances include:

Oracle's Virtual Compute Appliance X5: Paired with the Oracle FS1 Series Flash Storage System, the Virtual Compute Appliance serves as a complete, converged infrastructure system. Oracle calculates that compared to Cisco plus EMC, Virtual Compute Appliance is 50 percent cheaper and easier to deploy.

Oracle Database Appliance X5: Designed for distributed and branch office deployments, the Oracle Database Appliance integrates compute, storage, and software. It adds flash caching, integrated InfiniBand connectivity, increased compute cores, and increased storage to improve consolidation density by up to 4x.

Oracle Big Data Appliance X5: Delivers Hadoop and NoSQL capabilities to the enterprise at a 35 percent lower three-year total cost of ownership and with 30 percent faster deployment time than a custom-built cluster. The new appliance comes with twice the RAM and 2.25x the processor cores. Also available on Oracle Big Data Appliance is the latest version of Oracle Big Data SQL, which extends Oracle SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL, enabling customers to use one fast SQL query across all their data, with no application changes.

Oracle's Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance X5: Eliminates data loss exposure, offering faster processors and up to 30 percent expanded capacity within a single rack, enabling faster recovery, higher throughput, and improved database backup consolidation.
