Launching the Exadata Cloud Machine: an Exadata subscription service deployed in the customer data center

The Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Machine has been launched this December. Exadata Cloud Machine or ExaCM is the cloud-based Oracle Database subscription service available on Oracle Exadata, but deployed in the customer data center behind their firewall.

Exadata Cloud Machine uniquely combines the world’s #1 database technology and Exadata, the most powerful database platform, with the simplicity, agility and elasticity of a cloud-based deployment. It is identical to Oracle’s Exadata public cloud service, but located in customers’ own data centers and managed by Oracle Cloud Experts, thus enabling a consistent Exadata cloud experience for customers – whether on-premises or in Oracle public cloud data centers.

Business Value of Oracle Exadata Database Machine. An IDC Whitepaper

IDC_BusinessValueexadata_OCT2016

"IDC interviewed eight organizations about how they are using Oracle Exadata to support their database-related workloads. These organizations reported that, by moving to an Oracle engineered system platform optimized for running database-related workloads, they better and more efficiently leverage their organizations’ data to their business and operational advantage. As a result, the organizations are achieving better business outcomes and efficiencies through improved database performance, scalability, and reliability. On the basis of these interviews, IDC projects that these Oracle customers will realize average annual business benefits worth $157,712 per 100 users and a breakeven point of 11 months, which would result in a five-year return on investment (ROI) of 429% "
