The last week or so I've had a number of conversations with colleagues attempting to figure out how and why the enterprise software mega-players continue to get away with premium pricing during the worst recession in living memory.Why is it that Oracle can show its best operating performance ever and Wall Street analysts don't ask the basic question: 'Is this sustainable?
Oracle Chairman and CEO Larry Ellison caught the Oracle OpenWorld conference audience by surprise the day before by rolling out the Exadata line of two hardware-software configurations. The integrated servers re-architect the relationship between Oracle's 11g database and high-performance storage. Exadata, in essence, gives new meaning to "attached" storage for Oracle databases. It mimics the close pairing of data and logic execution that such cloud providers as Google use with MapReduce technologies.
The reason for the 10x to 72x performance improvements cited by Ellison are do to bringing the "intelligence" closer to the data, that is bringing the Exadata Programmable Storage Server appliance into close proximity to the Oracle database servers, and then connecting them through InfiniBand connections. In essence, this architecture mimics some of the performance value created by cloud computing environments like Google, with its MapReduce technology.
In an earlier post I talked a bit about a start-up called Kickfire who are releasing an accelerated database appliance for MySQL applications in the 1TB-3TB range that gives comparable performance to an equivalent Oracle RDBMS setup for around a quarter of the price.Kickfire sounds compelling for utility LAMP computing applications that need to be fast and cheap, but it doesn’t address ultra-scalable and cheap, at least not yet.
I recently had a chance to chat with Oracle’s vice president of Linux engineering, Wim Coekaerts, and senior director of product marketing, Monica Kumar, about Oracles virtualization efforts and a bit about the philosophy behind the company's efforts. In summary, Oracle sees virtualization technology as just another tool organizations can use to increase the performance, reliability, scalability, agility and/or manageability of their IT infrastructure.
SAP has fired back at Oracle, in rather short order, with the acquisition of OutlookSoft, a corporate performance management vendor based in Stamford, Conn. It looks like short order of course, as Oracle announced its Hyperion acquisition a scant two months ago.
