Have you discovered that the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach looks good on paper but leads to high cost, vendor lock-in and requires extensive tuning? As a result, you may be looking for better performance and the lower cost of an ‘appliance-like’ solution that provides a common foundation yet offers flexibility with choice of OS and database. These features can be found with the HP ProLiant DL980 Universal DB Solution.
For your Linux distribution of choice— Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, Novell® SUSE® Linux Enterprise Server, or Oracle Linux—the Universal DB Solution offers an optimal Oracle RDBMS environment and alternatives such as EnterpriseDB Postgres Plus Advanced Server or Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise.
For a Windows environment, the Universal DB Solution is an enterprise-class architecture optimized for Microsoft® SQL Server 2012 and alternatives from EnterpriseDB, Sybase, or Oracle.
No matter what your choice, the Universal DB Solution provides faster time to production, lower TCO, and reduced risk.
