Price comparison for Big Data Appliance

Untitled Document

We are seeing a lot of discussions about pricing and comparable pricing between a "standard Hadoop cluster" and the Oracle Big Data Appliance. This post is aimed at providing a simple apples-to-apples comparison and a clarification of what is, and what is not included in the pricing and packaging of Oracle Big Data Appliance.

I got an interesting comment on this post with regards to the Linux support we quoted here.

- Red Hat Enterprise Linux, 2 Sockets, 1 Guest, 3 yr 9x5 RHN Subscription (No Media) License

One extra difference we could point out is that the servers in BDA come with Oracle Linux Premier support and all the benefits that flow from that.

First of all, 9-5 support => we have no such thing at Oracle, it’s 24x7 support. You also get things like Ksplice, Premier backports, EM Ops Center and EM12c functionality. For more details see: http://www.oracle.com/us/technologies/linux/support-439829.html for all the details on the support.

A comparable Redhat service would be:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Premium (up to 1 guest) at $3,702/socket pair for 3 yrs

See: http://www.redhat.com/resourcelibrary/articles/articles-red-hat-enterprise-linux-purchasing-guide

Interesting extra price/service difference...
