Available today, Oracle announced 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 #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 proactive 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.
