ODA: Solution-In-a-Box

The Oracle Database Appliance Virtualized Platform enables customers to deploy both the Oracle database and Customer applications in a single appliance. Customers can easily reduce the complexity and costs associated with separating the solution into different server tiers. In addition to saving on rack, power and cooling costs, customers benefit from simplified management, maintenance and support with the Appliance Manager and Integrated Lights Out Manager (ILOM) tools built into every Oracle Database Appliance. Many organizations, even enterprises, also have a need to deploy solutions for remote branch office locations where IT environments may reside in little more than closets. Customers can configure the entire ERP solution and quickly deploy it in a remote location, reducing or possibly eliminating the cost of on-site administrators. 

Deployment model

  • Bare-metal
  • Virtualized Platform

Capacity on Demand Licensing

Oracle Database Appliance’s Capacity-on-Demand feature enables you to add more processor cores to scale up to increased system demands as you need to, without incurring the excessive costs and downtime usually associated with hardware upgrades. Additional cores are increased in 2-core increments.

There are several reasons why virtualization might be considered. Virtual Machines (VMs) can be used to consolidate and to utilize resources more effectively. Rather than disable not licensed cores, you can utilize them for other workloads. This can reduce the number of physical servers, resulting in space, power maintenance reductions, and cost savings. Virtualization is a great technology that provides application and database isolation and enables bundling of applications, middleware, and databases on the same hardwareFor Database and Application in separate KVM guests. This is ideal to separate resources for databases and applications and license them independently
