Oracle Launches an Array of On-premise IaaS Systems

Bangalore: Oracle has announced their launch of a group of infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provisions that help companies to run their integrated Oracle machines in-house, for a respectable monthly fee. The project was announced by Oracle earlier at their OpenWorld show in September.

Oracle’s idea of deploying on-premise IaaS systems is totally different from other companies like Amazon Web Services who nurtures IaaS offerings as an alternative to commodity cloud services. What Oracle wants is to have their Oracle systems sold for the on-premise deployment.

The Oracle IaaS also help users and customers to rent most of the integrated versions of Oracle services such as Oracle Exadata Database Machine, the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster, the Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine and the Oracle Sun ZFS Storage Appliance.

The company claims that the IaaS service eliminates the need for any other additional costs since all the needed supplies will be integrated within Oracle systems.

The company data sheet revealed that the IaaS services are less expensive when compared to purchasing an Oracle system, such as an Exadata X3-2 Engineered System, if no additional capacity-on-demand (CoD) is invovled. According to the data sheet, purchasing an Exadata system would cost over US$1,360,000 over three years; though an identical Oracle IaaS setup would cost only $1,080,000 over that same time, with no CoD.

Apart from these services, customers can have a pay on a month-by-month basis. Opting for the extra high availability presents the option of having an additional CoD cores at hand without any extra charge.

Altogether Oracle will be keeping standby node for every three nodes in use and also will upgrading the hardware at no cost.
