Where's the Logic? Save Money on SOA with Sun

As you are probably aware, Oracle announced significant price hikes for much of its software including the application server and other integration middleware in the wake of their acquisition of BEA. In light of this, we thought it would be useful to do some comparisons of the pricing for Sun's middleware against the new pricing and found that Sun's offerings provided a significant cost savings over the equivalent Oracle offerings in nearly every situation. Furthermore, our innovative subscription pricing model gives companies an alternative that can save even more money in most cases, reduce the large upfront capital expense traditionally associated with acquiring enterprise software, and eliminate "socket counting" audits that must be done with most perpetual licensing.

Rather than keep our research a secret, we've created an on-line calculator to allow anyone to put in the specifics of their environment and company and see the potential cost savings for themselves. I encourage you to visit sun.com/logic yourself to enter your own scenarios, but something as simple as a 20 socket, 4 cores per socket license on x64 hardware has a 5 year TCO with Sun's offering that is over 72% less than the equivalent with Oracle WebLogic or Fusion.

If you visit the site, you'll also see that we are running a limited time offer that includes:
  • A FREE 5 day SOA workshop
  • Complimentary adapter for WebLogic
  • An opportunity to lock-in our current pricing for 12 months
To take us up on this offer, you'll need to register so do so today!

hi kevin,

unfortunately in companies with too many employees oracle is cheaper at least compared to "Sun SOA Subscription".
