The Oracle Database Appliance is a new way to take advantage of the world's most popular database—Oracle Database 11g—in a single, easy-to-deploy and manage system. It's a complete package of software, server, storage and networking that's engineered for simplicity; saving time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance and support of database workloads.
"At Beijing Cable TV, we need to be able to deploy highly available database solutions quickly with minimum resources. The Oracle Database Appliance was extremely simple to deploy and manage. We were able to set up a highly available database solution in less than an hour. We also like the fact that the appliance is a complete Oracle engineered system, which includes two server nodes, software, networking and storage, in a single box, so we don't need to work with multiple hardware and software vendors."
