Oracle Expands Database Appliance Portfolio

Bringing the performance and reliability of Oracle's Engineered Systems to small and mid-sized businesses, Oracle unveiled two new models of its Oracle Database Appliance.

According to the vendor, its portfolio of database appliances, like its other engineered systems, enable businesses to simplify their journey to the cloud. Customers can backup or archive their critical data, and move their workloads to the Oracle Cloud whenever needed. Central to these new versions of the ODA, the company says, is support for the Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 and Oracle Database Enterprise Edition.

“Many organizations do not have the time, resources or expertise to build their own system and often struggle managing different platforms and systems," said Karen Sigman, VP, Converged Infrastructure, Oracle. "By offering a pre-integrated solution that is optimized for the database and the cloud, Oracle allows organizations of all sizes to free up their IT staff from maintenance and other routine tasks to focus on innovation and core business processes.” 

Key features of the Oracle Database Appliance include a starting price of $18,000 for new entry level database appliance for single or small database instances; reduced time to value with fast deployment; a range of Database Appliances that are designed to run single instance databases, database consolidation of multiple databases and high availability designs; NVMe Flash drives for ultimate performance and reliability; and  integration to Oracle Cloud, allowing businesses to backup and archive their critical data as well as migrate workloads to the cloud when ready.
