Running Mission-Critical Applications? Customers say why they choose Oracle WebLogic

Is a 'free' application server the right fit for your datacenter? Consider this: What you’ll save on license fees will not balance the loss of benefits such as a thoroughly tested, integrated solution with a complete roadmap and upgrade path. Do you want to consolidate and eventually create a cloud-ready datacenter? A 'free' solution will cost you heavily in the long term.

Join the live webcast to hear first-hand from Geoff Brown, CEO, Machine-To-Machine Intelligence (M2MI) Corporation his experience comparing Oracle WebLogic to other application servers. Learn from Oracle experts how this enterprise-grade application server is designed for:

  • Mission-critical applications that require absolute reliability
  • Advanced administration and management, including automatic, dynamic scaling
  • Enterprisewide deployment
  • Full-stack virtualization, enabling your cloud initiatives

Did you know that WebLogic offers the lowest TCO of all application servers?

Crimson Consulting Group just published a whitepaper, titled “Cost of Ownership Analysis: Oracle WebLogic Server vs. JBoss”. In this whitepaper Crimson estimated that JBoss Application Server costs more than WebLogic Server after 2 years and as much as 35% more over 5 years.  This cost differential is primarily due to the following reasons:

1.  Oracle WebLogic Server enjoys significant ease-of-use and productivity advantages over JBoss, enabled by a robust array of available tools for configuration, administration, and management.

2.  These ease-of-use and productivity advantages translate to savings in both the time and the cost of the people required to implement, administrate, and operate the system – resulting in the 35 percent savings versus performing the same activities with JBoss.

According to Crimson, “The cost advantage that JBoss enjoys by offering free software is cut in half by the time the application goes live for the first time, cut in half again by the end of the first year after purchase, and completely eliminated before the 18-months-from-purchase mark.  From that point onwards, WebLogic Server is less expensive on a TCO basis – an advantage that grows every year, based on its 50 percent per year operating cost advantage.”

If the numbers are not convincing enough, please check out the customer quotes.  All the quotes are from customers who have used or evaluated Oracle WebLogic Server and/or JBoss.  The conclusions were based on in-depth interviews with staff of ten organizations representing 16 unique application server deployments that include Oracle WebLogic Server and JBoss.
