Oracle’s Expanded Portfolio of Database Appliances Are Now Available for Enterprise and Midmarket Organizations, and Provide Customers With a Pathway to the Cloud

REDWOOD SHORES, CA – Jun 21, 2016 — / — Today, Oracle announced two new models of its Oracle Database Appliance (ODA) bringing all of the performance and reliability of Oracle’s Engineered Systems to small and mid-sized businesses for the first time.

In addition, as organizations seek opportunities to transition to the cloud, Oracle’s new database appliances provide a bridge between on-premise systems and the cloud. In the future, organizations that plan to connect their ODAs to the Oracle Cloud can seamlessly back up their data automatically.

“Bringing in Oracle Database Appliances definitely reduced the complexity of our environment and allowed us to support our 25X data growth over the past few years,” said Jacqueline Hufford-Jenson, Senior Manager, Database Administration, LifeLock, a fast-growing, mid-market company. ”Today, using the Oracle Database Appliance straight out of the box, we get significantly reduced latency, which has played a role in helping us grow as a company.”

Oracle’s portfolio of database appliances, like all Oracle Engineered Systems, enables organizations to simplify their journey to the cloud. Customers can backup or archive their critical data, and easily move their workloads to the Oracle Cloud whenever needed. Central to these new versions of the ODA is support for the Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 and Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.

“We’re excited to bring the power, simplicity and capabilities of Oracle’s Engineered Systems in at a price point that allows every organization to save time and money,” said Jim Gargan, senior vice president of Oracle Converged Infrastructure. “With the family of database appliances, Oracle offers built-in expertise for single-instance database and high-availability deployments, while providing a bridge between on-premise systems and the cloud, enabling all of our customers to capitalize on their investment.”

The Oracle Database Appliance is designed to run single-instance databases, database consolidation of multiple databases, and high-availability designs.

Added features include:

  • Starting price of $18,000 for new, entry-level database appliance for single or small database instances;
  • Reducing time to value, customers can deploy in as little as 30 minutes;
  • NVMe Flash drives for ultimate performance and reliability;
  • Integration to Oracle Cloud, allowing businesses to backup and archive their critical data as well as migrate workloads to the cloud when ready.

“Since Oracle owns the entire stack, its systems are fully hardware-software integrated, pre-tested, and optimized from silicon to applications. They are quickly deployed, extend smoothly to Oracle’s cloud, and the various systems seem to work well together. The latest family members, Oracle Database Appliance X6-2S and X6-2M, should help small and medium-sized businesses put a fully operational entry-level Oracle database in place — apparently no screwdrivers required,” said Peter Rutten, Analyst, IDC Computing Platforms Group.
