Oracle Engineered Systems

What are Oracle Engineered Systems?

Oracle in the DNA

 Oracle engineered systems are systems that integrate hardware and software components to reduce the cost and complexity of IT infrastructures while increasing productivity and performance. Since these systems are pre-integrated by Oracle, the time it takes to go into production is dramatically reduced.

Oracle engineered systems are based on a balanced architecture. What this means is that clients can start with the right size configuration and grow as needed. The balanced configuration guarantees no bottlenecks will be introduced in the process.

It’s and old idea – Raw Iron

 Around 1998, Oracle was already talking about the concept of engineered systems with the Raw Iron project, a type of Oracle database specialized appliance that never took off. One of the reasons was Oracle’s dependency on third parties to provide the building blocks of such an appliance.

Since then, Oracle has been slowly creating or buying the building blocks required to delivering Oracle engineered systems:

  • Oracle Managed Files (OMF)
  • Oracle Storage Management (ASM)
  • Recovery Manager (RMAN)
  • Oracle Enterprise Linux
  • BEA/Weblogic acquisition
  • Tangosol/Coherence  acquisition
  • Sun acquisition

These are just some examples of major milestones of this long in the making project.

What are the benefits?

(Extreme performance, fastest deployment at the lowest cost)

Oracle’s engineered systems are based on a balanced architecture. What this means is that clients can start with the right size configuration and grow as needed. The balanced configuration guarantees no bottlenecks will be introduced in the process.

Oracle’s engineered systems are optimized to achieve enterprise performance levels that are unmatched in the industry. Faster time to production is achieved by implementing pre-engineered and pre-assembled hardware and software bundles

Single-vendor stack simplifies and reduces the costs associated with purchasing, deploying, and supporting IT environments.
