# I don't see the appliance as very successful on the low end. It's still a hefty two node RAC, licensed per CPU.

Well the announcement was rather vague but strong hints that you don't need to run RAC on it and you can migrate existing licenses over to it and you can pay for as much of it as you want ( or are using up ).

Price tag for a server where you are not using all of it seems pretty high.

Remember they kept ( or at least Mark Hurd did ) pushing the words SMB. A partner based solution for the partners to sell this into small businesses and toss it over the fence without having to work hard to configure it and/or support it ... seems like. Received on Sun Sep 25 2011 - 03:25:37 CDT
