Computacenter has celebrated becoming the first Oracle partner to roll out the vendor's Sun Oracle Database Machine.
The corporate reseller has bagged a brace of "multi-million pound deals" to deploy the technology for firms in the financial sector. Combining Sun hardware and Oracle software, the Database Machine was unveiled last year. It was the first joint offering developed following Oracle's $7.4bn (£4.9bn) agreement to buy Sun. After the acquisition's closure, Computacenter was quick to become the first Oracle partner to invest in the technology.
The VAR claims that the Database Machine can provide cost and power savings five times greater than those offered by competing technologies. The two deals announced today were sealed after Computacenter had undertaken evaluation, proof-of-concept and test work.
The reseller's director of datacentre solutions Neill Burton claimed his firm's success spoke to the seamlessness with which Oracle has integrated Sun.
“As a solutions and services provider, we are committed to bringing the latest technology to our customers where it is appropriate,” he said. “For specific workloads, the Database Machine is capable of providing five-fold reduction in physical footprint, with associated reduction in power, support and management effort over traditional infrastructures. This makes the solution absolutely key for organisations looking for reduced cost, without compromising on performance.”
