LJE keynote @OOW1012 Tokyo, Japan

Oracle OOW2012 @Tokyo

LJE’s keynote  provide some new insight and some of my own observations:

  • Use Apple as example for HW + SW integrated together and Services (online)
  • Compete in price/performance against
    • IBM big iron/storage
    • COTS xeno servers/storage
    • LJE  did not mention that Apple can charge higher price for its products and Services
    • LJE did not mention IBM Mainframe that used to have HW+SW+Service work together
  • Exadata $1B business this year
    • if the avg exadata sale is $1M then  it is 1000 exadata
    • if the avg exadata sale is $.5M then it is 2000 exadata
  • It is much better pitch for HW + SW Eng together 
  • LJE is clearly in charge and top  pitchman for Oracle
  • As a side note John Fowler presentation also improved and pitch the Engineered System and not more HW (server + Storage)
  • The list price of oracle DB per core is $47.5k with today multi-core SPARC or Intel Chip  Oracle’s SW license Costs are much higher than the HW cost
  • The premium Support cost of DB  SW is  22%
  • The premium support for OS is 8 % for HW is 12%
