Oracle Database Appliance Specs – What’s Under the Cover?

oracle-database-appliance-toronto-resized-152Simplicity and Power to the Extreme

The main attraction of the Oracle Database Appliance is in how it simplifies the management and growth of your Oracle infrastructure.  You can start with a single instance or you can configure your database infrastructure to utilize Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) for database failover protection.

On top of this, Oracle Support covers the entire database infrastructure – both hardware and software.  Never again will you have to deal with your hardware vendor pointing the finger at the software vendor and vice versa!

The real question is… “What Do I Get?”.  Ok… the real question is “How much?”.  You’ll have to call us for that answer but it is competitively priced!

Simplified Expandability – Pay for What You Use 

The Oracle Database Appliance comes with 24 cores available but you can license as few as 2 and Oracle will throttle-back as required.  Add more cores simply by purchasing additional licenses and the Oracle Database Appliance will throttle-up and make use of the additional cores you have licensed.
