Sun Microsystems and Oracle have announced the availability of new Database Packs from Sun/Oracle joint resellers.

Included are new infrastructure solutions incorporating Oracle Database 10g with Sun StorEdge 3310 arrays and Sun Fire x64 servers (x86, 64-bit) powered by the AMD Opteron processor and running either the Solaris 10 Operating System or standard Linux distribution operating systems.

“Sun and Oracle have seen increasing demand for our respective Sun Fire x64 servers and database products and while the industry has traditionally thought of our longstanding relationship as only the marriage of big iron with leading database technology, the reality is we’re continuing to increase our joint presence in the growing x64 server market,” said Sun Microsystems vice president, Partner Marketing, Stephen Borcich.

“With this integrated solution, Sun and Oracle are enabling our joint reseller partners to share in that opportunity,” added Borcich.

These solutions are meant to bring high performance and enterprise-level reliability at a cost that small and medium-sized businesses can afford.

According to a press release, the database packs include:

– the low-cost, entry-level Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition One for small businesses

– Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition for medium sized businesses

– Oracle Database 10g Standard Edition and Oracle Real Application Clusters for businesses that demand 24×7 application availability

– Sun Fire V20z and V40z servers, Sun’s x64 servers powered by the AMD Opteron processor

-Sun StorEdge 3310 arrays for customers requiring enterprise-class storage flexibility and reliability in a workgroup-size package and price.

Additionally, the solution includes the Sun N1 Service Provisioning System (N1 SPS) model for Oracle Database and Oracle Application Server. With the N1 SPS model and Database Packs, customers of all sizes can dramatically reduce the time and effort to deploy low-cost, scalable grids.

“Proven, low-cost solutions for small and medium businesses that are easy to implement, and provide reliability and scalability are what the market is looking for,” said Oracle Vice President of Worldwide Alliances and Channels Doug Kennedy.

“Oracle and Sun are delivering validated solutions that bring the economic benefits inherent in grid computing to the small and medium business segment with these database packs,” added Kennedy. “Not only are Oracle and Sun providing these joint solutions, but we’re investing in our resellers through training and support to successfully sell into this growing market.”

The two companies have worked together for over 20 years. The database packs are available immediately from joint Sun/Oracle resellers.
