  • 45. Battle Card Oracle Database ApplianceKey Questions – Exadata Database Machine Products• What is the impact of downtime for your key business critical applications? Oracle Database Appliance a complete What You Really Want to Know: What are these key new and existing apps? What are their package of software, server, storage, and HA requirements? Which DB version do they use on what OS/HW platform? Do they have a network thats engineered for simplicity; ULA in place? Who are key business owners of those apps? saving time and money by simplifying• What issues do you have in architecting, deploying and managing HA databases? deployment, maintenance, and support of What You Really Want to Know: How complicated and costly is it to manage their HA DB database workloads. Including systems? Do they have the expertise and in-house skills to setup and manage HA DB? What impact does a heterogeneous stack have on their operation and support? •Oracle Enterprise Linux• Are you currently experiencing challenges in meeting SLAs due to quality of service •Oracle 11gR2 Database EE issues on your DB servers? •RAC or RAC One Node What You Really Want to Know: Are they running business critical DBs on systems that are •Oracle Enterprise Manager 3+ years old?

  • 48. Oracle Database Appliance Objection Handling• “I use Enterprise Edition, but I don’t need to upgrade to RAC.”In an increasingly networked and mobile world, virtually all data is becoming critical to daily businessoperations. When your database is down, you face lost productivity, lost revenue and loss of customerconfidence. The Oracle Database Appliance delivers the entire value set of Oracle Enterprise Editionwhile providing appliance-like ease of deployment, patching, diagnostics, support, and storagemanagement - eliminating the time, risk and costs normally associated with building a high-availabilitysolution.• “I don’t like to buy “bundles”…I want to buy the best components necessary.”The Oracle Database Appliance is an engineered solution, using the very best of breed of products, ANDit comes fully integrated so you don’t need to spend the time and money on alternative approaches, orassume the risk of not designing it correctly. The exclusive Oracle Appliance Manager software providesunprecedented ease of implementation and management for the Oracle Database Appliance.• “We’re already invested in HP/Dell servers and can’t afford to migrate to Oracle x86.”Total cost of ownership is always a key consideration for any solution. That’s why the Oracle DatabaseAppliance is such a great solution for you. You can reduce your annual OpEx by as much as $70K a yearover similar solutions from HP and Dell, while benefitting from superior ease of management and single-vendor support.• “ I currently use Oracle Database Standard Edition, so why do I need ODA?”Downtime for virtually any application results in lost productivity for high value corporate resources. ODAincludes one-button install and stack management so it is easy to use with only basic skill sets. It alsofeatures self-managing storage, automatic alerts on performance and availability events with auto-correctfailures and automated service request ticketing which provides significant added value for a relativelysmall incremental investment.
  • 49. Oracle Database Appliance Objection Handling• We deploy databases on cheap commodity based hardware:The purchase price of hardware is only a small part of the overall TCO of a Database solution. Oracle’sDatabase Appliance is a hardware and software complete, Oracle Engineered System that offers rapiddeployment, simplified management, monitoring, and support from a single vendor reducing overall TCO.• We have concerns that we’ll outgrow the Oracle Database Appliance:•The Oracle Database Appliance is ideal for SMBs and as a departmental database solution. The DatabaseAppliance can leverage the Oracle Database Advanced Compression shrinking the size of database whileincreasing performance. In addition Oracle offers other Engineered Systems (Exadata and SuperCluster) inorder to accommodate larger environments.• We have concerns that performance will diminish over time:•Unlike commodity servers that require an outage to upgrade processors, or must be purchased with morehead-room then initially required, the Oracle Database Appliance provides a unique pay-as-you-growsoftware licensing model to quickly scale from 2 to 24 processor cores without any hardware upgrades oroutages.• We have concerns about the product roadmap.•The Oracle Database Appliance is sold as standalone highly available database solution. The serversutilized for the Database Appliance will continue to evolve and follow the Sun product roadmap.• We don’t have Oracle databases.• Every business has database requirements. The Oracle Database Appliance offers customers the Worldnumber one database on an Oracle Engineered System the is simple to deploy, simple to manage, andsimple to support. The Database Appliance offers the ideal platform to take advantage of the OracleDatabase while lowering your overall cost of ownership.
