Oracle Unveils New Portfolio of Converged Infrastructure Appliances

Oracle has been enhancing its engineered systems line and today they announced a portfolio aimed at extending their position in the data center. The new generation of engineered systems, including Oracle’s new Virtual Compute Appliance X5, Oracle FS1 Series Flash Storage System, and sixth-generation Oracle Exadata Database Machine X5 are in line with Oracle’s strategy for reducing costs, increasing value and driving simplicity.

Ready for out of box deployment, Oracle experts integrate, optimize, automate, test, patch, and support the full software and hardware stack of an engineered system, significantly lowering customer costs. HP, Dell, VCE and others offer integrated and converged systems as well. Oracle claims more than 10,000 units have shipped to date as Oracle customers across the globe adopt Oracle engineered systems and appliances to simplify their IT infrastructures, speed application deployments, and increase data center productivity.

“We’re going to compete for that core data center business. Our appliances and engineered systems deliver the highest performance by a large margin at the lowest purchase price for the data center core. They get the job done faster, more securely and more reliably than any competitive offering available today,” said Ellison. “Our customers want their data centers to be as simple and as automated as possible. With some of Oracle’s engineered systems and appliances, you can pay 50 percent less, BUT you have to be willing to take TWICE the performance.”
