Oracle and HP announced that they have developed reference configurations that can accelerate implementation by IT departments of Oracle Database 10g-based data warehouses on HP servers and storage.

Reference configurations help customers get the database, server, and storage mix they need, right out of the gates. These configurations have a sliding scale to optimize data warehouse solutions for either raw performance or price performance. This approach can help cut weeks out of the buying cycle for even greater ease of doing business with HP and Oracle, and speed time to implementation.

To avoid typical bottlenecks, each configuration defines a matched set of servers and storage that balances I/O throughput seamlessly across all components to yield consistently high performance for complex queries running against large data warehouses. Customers can make quick and accurate infrastructure decisions with guidance on the right combination of HP Integrity and ProLiant servers and HP StorageWorks disk arrays. From a single HP ProLiant server to scale-out server clusters running Linux and scale-up HP Integrity Superdome servers running HP-UX11i, the configurations cover data warehouses ranging in size from 250 gigabytes to 10 terabytes.
