We are pleased to announce the EMEA T5-8 Acceleration Promotion, a price promotion that, for a limited time, makes the T5-8 server available to our EMEA partners at a very attractive discount.
Why the SPARC T5-8 server?
Oracle's SPARC servers running Oracle Solaris are ideal for mission-critical applications requiring high performance, best-in-class availability, and unmatched scalability on all application tiers. SPARC servers include built-in virtualization, systems management, and security at no additional cost. Designed for applications that demand the highest performance and 24x7 availability.
Oracle's SPARC T5-8 server is the fastest and the most advanced, scalable midrange server in the Oracle portfolio.
The Oracle SPARC T5-8 server is in the sweet spot of the UNIX midrange, and directly competing with IBM P770(+) and P780(+) systems, with a 7x price advantage (see the official Oracle press release) over a similarly configured P780 system!
WHAT WE ARE OFFERING?
The promotion is being communicated to VADs and VARs, and will be driven via the distribution channel. Resellers must contact their preferred VAD to take advantage of this promotion, and to get further information related to commercial aspects.
We encourage you, Oracle Resellers, to use this attractive price to position T5-8 to beat your competition, accelerate T5-8 sales, and use the increased margin to offer your additional services to your end users – thus expanding your footprint within your customers and make the T5-8 business proposition even more compelling.
This is a unique opportunity for you to expand your customer base and beat the competition with a 7x price advantage over a similarly configured IBM P780.
This price promotion is only available to OPN Partners, and is valid until November 30, 2013.
