SPARC T5-8 Servers EMEA Acceleration Promotion for Partners

Dear all

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

Sparc T5-8Oracle'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 official Oracle press release) over a similarly configured P780 system!

What are we offering

Effective immediately, the fully-configured T5-8 server is available to VADs with a 38% discount off price list: this is 8 additional points on top of the standard 30% contractual discount.

The promo will be communicated to VADs and VARs, and VADs are expected to pass the additional discount through to the VARs. Resellers will be encouraged to use this attractive price to position T5-8 versus the competition, accelerate T5-8 sales, and use the increased margin to offer additional services to their end users - thus expanding their footprint within their customers and making the T5-8 business proposition even more compelling.

This is a unique opportunity for partners to expand their 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.

What's in it for Partners

 More competitive price
 More customer budget available for more projects: attach migration services, training, ...
 Opportunity to attach Storage, and additional Software
