Sun Microsystems, Inc. and Oracle Corporation announced that some of the world's largest business intelligence data warehouse (BIDW) systems run Oracle Database on the Sun platform to achieve greater business agility and performance, while reducing overall operational costs. Thousands of worldwide customers are relying on the seamless, scalable 64-bit Sun architecture to power their multi-terabyte class business intelligence (BI) networks.

Sun's complete offering for the BIDW industry builds on the enterprise-class, virtually unparalleled security and scalability of the UNIX Operating System, Solaris. This includes the Solaris platform on AMD Opteron, SPARC and Intel processor-based systems, Sun StorEdge storage systems, and spanning the Java Enterprise System and Java Desktop System. Oracle Database 10g provides a single, integrated database engine for scalable and high performing data warehousing implementations. Oracle simplifies the maintenance of ever-expanding data warehouses with a single management interface, self-tuning, and self-diagnosing features.

Because customers need solutions that scale with business growth and change, Sun offers the iForce BIDW Competency Center where system design can be sized and evaluated before deployment with the assistance of Sun and its ISV/SIs partners, reducing costs, risk and time-to-service of an effective BIDW solution. The Solaris OS-optimized data center program enables customers to gain quicker access to information and improve business intelligence, advance data center efficiency and to achieve 70 percent scale out utilization at a fraction of the cost.
