Oracle Announces Oracle-Sun Information Appliance Foundations

Industry Leaders Collaborate to Streamline Deployment of Data Warehousing Systems

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 26 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Oracle today announced the Oracle-Sun Information Appliance Foundations that allow joint Oracle and Sun customers to reduce the risk and deployment time of data warehousing solutions based on Oracle(R) Database 10g and Sun servers, storage and the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS).

The Oracle-Sun Information Appliance Foundations are reference configurations that provide a recommended database, server, and storage mix for a customer's specific requirements. Implementing an Oracle-Sun Information Appliance Foundation-based data warehouse solution can decrease customers' buying cycle by weeks and streamline data warehouse implementations.

As part of Oracle's Information Appliance Initiative, these reference configurations have carefully combined CPU resources, memory, I/O bandwidth and disks into a well-balanced design that will help prevent performance or capacity bottlenecks. Oracle and its hardware partners have developed configurations for data warehouses with varying raw data, average concurrent user and workload complexity. These configurations have the capability to handle data warehouses ranging from 300 gigabytes to 10 terabytes, and from light to heavy workloads. The Oracle-Sun Information Appliance Foundations offer multiple solutions for each set of requirements allowing customers to quickly choose among vertical (single server systems), horizontal (clustered server systems) configurations and SPARC(tm) or x64 (x86, 64-bit) architectures running Solaris(tm) or other supported operating systems. In addition to the servers, the Foundations also cover Sun's StorageTek disk arrays.

"These Foundations provide our customers a choice of fast, scalable and reliable solutions to run their data warehousing systems," said Willie Hardie, vice president of Database Product Marketing, Oracle. "They're designed to help take the risk out of building a data warehouse that can meet short term requirements and provide a path for future growth. This announcement marks another significant milestone in delivering business value for Sun and Oracle customers."

"Sun and Oracle's joint effort improves architecture design and selection processes for IT departments, making it easy to implement well-designed, right-sized data warehouse solutions built upon Sun's robust infrastructure offerings including the Solaris 10 operating system," said Juan Carlos Soto, vice president of market development at Sun. "Customers are sure to benefit from this timely and economic approach, making these joint reference configurations the smart way to pick the optimal solution for their business."
