Hey Niall,
Thanks for pointing out that article! it's expensive to a person, however, not for a company. I’ll forward the link and let him make the decision. At least, they know where they could get the thorough information.

Thanks again!

Best Regards,
Betty Huang

http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=232122- its a market analysis product so I'd say the price was quite reasonable really. x86-64 is a pretty big market share, probably over 50% by now.

Wow, that’s very expensive… this is just a question from my ex-colleague. He’d like to have some understanding about  the opportunities for Oracle database to run on x86 servers. Actually, based on the feedbacks I got so far, it looks like x86 would be a trend for customer to run their production database on…  
What’s your opinion on this?
 
Thanks and Best Regards,
Betty Huang

Hi Betty
 
I don't have up to date information (IDC do produce it each year but it costs several thousand dollars to get a copy - possibly EMC will have something in your market research dept). Never the less I was able to discover that in 2007 ( somewhat old now) 1/3rd of Oracle's database revenue came from Windows. The rest was split IIRC approx 50% UNIX, 50% Linux (the focus of my presentation was Oracle on Windows so I didn't keep the rest of the info.   2012/2/21 <Betty.Huang_at_emc.com>
Hi Ingrid,
Thanks for the quick response, this is very helpful. Is there a further subdivision on UNIX?

Could you please point me to this presentation if it's public?

Thanks and Best Regards,
Betty Huang

Hi,

according to a 2011 DOAG presentation:
53% of all OTN downloads (of the database server) are Windows, 26% Unix, 19% Linux.

Best regards
