Appliance, engineered solutions are becoming the industry rage

HP Enterprise Database Consolidation Appliance for SQL Server really demonstrates how Oracle has set the stage for engineered solutions / appliances becoming the next big wave in the enterprise IT industry:
ARTICLE
The article mentions how the HP/Microsoft announcement is clearly a response to Oracle Exadata. However, from a technical perspective, it is a much different offering than Oracle Exadata. The HP/Microsoft
offering is all about consolidating by offering a preconfigured database and hardware solution using hypervisor based virtualization. Oracle Exadata is all about a preconfigured data and hardware solution for
consolidation but also focused on high performance.

Oracle Database Appliance - Cloud 'in a box' for small to mid-size companies ?

Seems logical for Oracle to announce a database appliance for small to mid-size companies as Exadata was too big for these companies: http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/495422 This announcement reminds me of an information week article I just read titled "Appliances: Just How Many Toasters Do You Need?'. The article discusses the need for both virtualization and specialized software/hardware appliances. Article also discusses Oracle Exadata or mainframe for large database workloads. Now there is a new 'toaster' for small and medium size database workloads.

Migrating legacy client/server and mainframe technologies to the Oracle cloud.
