Oracle teams with Dell, EMC for warehousing

Pre-configured hardware/software package gobbles data

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Oracle launched a data warehouse initiative today by teaming with Dell and EMC to produce an easy to deploy, pre-configured data warehouse hardware and software package.

The new Oracle Optimized Warehouse combines software, hardware, storage, I/O and networking built on Oracle Database and pre-configured for Dell PowerEdge servers and EMC CLARiiON CX3 networked storage systems.

Available now through Dell, the system consists of a PowerEdge 2950 with two dual-core Xeon processors, Red Hat or Oracle Enterprise Linux and a Dell/EMC CX3-10 networked storage system.

"With the Oracle Optimized Warehouse, customers no longer need to choose between proprietary data warehouse solutions and Oracle-based solutions custom built on leading hardware platforms," said Ray Roccaforte, Oracle data warehousing exec. "Oracle now delivers the advantages of its market-leading database within a simple-to-buy, pre-built product optimized for data warehousing out-of-the-box."

The product is aimed at data marts, data warehouses and as infrastructure for business intelligence applications and tools.

Oracle competes against the likes of Teradata (split from NCR), Netezza, IBM and HP in the data warehousing realm. All have products for collecting and analyzing enormous amounts of information to give retailers, banks, manufactures and others a better grasp on their business. ®
