of Oracle licenses by using Oracle Systems

Oracle Engineered Systems are a proven suite of infrastructure  systems to solve problems with business critical applications and databases. You might call these systems “converged infrastructure” but the biggest difference to appliances like Nutanix, FlexPod and Vblock is that the OS, Hypervisor, and database/application software are engineered together with the hardware. This is only possible when the manufacturer owns the full stack of technology from applications to disk to unlock a myriad of benefits hidden within all this intellectual property.

Exadata:

Exadata is Oracle’s flagship Database-centric Engineered System designed for extreme performance; coming from Exadata-specific optimizations, including Smart Flash cache, Smart Scan, Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC), Flash Storage and ROCE networking for low latency, high bandwidth data transfer. Available in eighth, quarter, half, and full rack configurations with a choice of high capacity or flash storage, Exadata is especially well-suited for demanding OLTP workloads, in-memory workloads, large-scale database consolidations and multi-rack data warehouses.

Oracle Database Appliance:

There is actually a family of ODA’s ranging from single node to a High Availability models; each of which designed to run all Editions of the Oracle Database in bare metal or virtualised deployments. Each ODA is a self-contained appliance of compute, storage, networking and software to create an alternative to commodity infrastructure at a sensible price point for customers looking to consolidate, improve performance and reduce licensing costs.

Exadata Proof of Concepts

Explorer realises that all customers are different and each Oracle workload will have its own unique set of nuances, regardless of its size. This means it’s almost impossible to know what scale Exadata can improve performance. The key is to try it in your datacentre with your applications, which to date has been extremely difficult and costly to achieve for customers – both logistically and technically. To remedy this, Explorer’s own Exadata is available for onsite Proof of Concepts with zero associated costs.
