Simple Yet Powerful

With Oracle Database Appliance, everything is simple—from sourcing right through to deployment and management. It’s engineered for simplicity and faster time-to-value, so you can run databases and applications on a single, managed appliance, with single-vendor support.

Automation is key to Oracle Database Appliance’s simplicity. It’s based on standardized, proven configurations, meaning there’s no need for guesswork or specialist skills. In fact, a database administrator can have it up and running within minutes. Patching is automated across the entire stack, as well as storage management—it’s all integrated into the appliance.

Oracle Database Appliance delivers everything you need for your databases and applications. And, unlike converged or self-build systems, if you ever need support, there’s only one number you need to call.

High Performance, Low Costs

Oracle Database Appliance is the lowest-cost entry into Oracle Engineered Systems. With capacity-on-demand licensing, you save substantial licensing costs and maximize the return on your IT resources—just pay for what you need, when you need it.

Many organizations waste IT spend on capacity they don’t yet need. Often, they don’t have a choice. Oracle Database Appliance is different. It’s completely flexible, so you can quickly scale up storage or memory when you need it.

By licensing processor cores on demand—a feature unique to Oracle—you can quickly scale from 2 to 72, without any hardware upgrades. This can translate into significant savings compared to other solutions, where you’re expected to pre-provision licenses that you may or may not need.

The same applies to hardware: we deliver a complete, engineered appliance, rather than build-your-own components. The physical footprint is small, and operational costs are low. Labor costs are cut across the board, too—delivering savings of up to 72 percent over traditional build-and-maintain approaches.

Purpose-Built to Perform

Oracle Database Appliance is specifically engineered by Oracle for Oracle Database. That’s something only we can deliver. And it means you get predictable, proven results, with minimal effort.

Your business relies on its databases, so you need them to run at peak performance all the time. Only Oracle can help you do that. All hardware and software up and down the stack is fully integrated and optimized for Oracle Database—no other vendor can offer such complete integration and optimization.

By running your databases on a purpose-built appliance—built on Oracle expertise and best practices—you know it’s been configured and optimized to perform at its very best.
