Oracle: Less Integration, More Innovation

Overview: Engineered Systems-Highest Performance, Lowest Price

Oracle Engineered Systems optimize the entire hardware ans software technology stack to deliver extreme performance that enables you to get more work done. Oracle integrates the technologies so you don’t have to, dramatically reducing acquisition and operating costs.

Cut Complexity, Cut Costs

  • Integrated systems are architected, integrated, tested, and optimized to work together—cutting complexity and eliminating costs. This results in easier deployment and upgrades, and more efficient systems management.

Extreme Performance at Every Layer of the Technology Stack

  • Extreme performance means getting the job done faster, better, and more economically than it has been done before. It’s the hallmark of Oracle’s Engineered Systems and the ultimate embodiment of Oracle’s drive to simplify IT.

Simplified IT Speeds Up How You Do Business

  • Engineered systems are pre-assembled across every level of the technology stack. The integration work is done for you so new services come online quickly. Your IT team can focus on improving services and service levels—and adding value to the business.
Radical processing speeds, significantly faster deployments, instant visuals for in-depth analysis, and big data that’s finally manageable. Oracle’s engineered systems bring extreme performance to every layer of the technology stack and every aspect of your business.

How Can You Drive Innovation with Simplified IT?

The future of your IT organization, as well as the role IT plays in the business, is being shaped by choices you’re making now. Whether in the data center, in the cloud, or in a mixed deployment, your goal is to make IT a strategic asset to the business. The lower acquisition and operational costs associated with Oracle’s engineered systems provide advantages that transform the value that IT brings to your company.

Oracle’s Engineered Systems

Overview: Oracle Optimized Data Center

The Oracle Optimized Data Center provides a strategic road map for IT organizations to implement a truly dynamic and cost-effective service infrastructure that accelerates business innovation and growth. Oracle is uniquely positioned to deliver best-in-class systems combined with the software and expertise you need to transform your existing environment into a truly optimized data center by:

  • Simplifying your IT infrastructure to lower overall operations cost
  • Freeing up capital so you can accelerate your innovation investments and hone your competitive edge
  • Reducing deployment risks for mission-critical application services by leveraging Oracle Optimized Solutions, which take the guesswork out of deploying enterprise IT solutions
  • Providing advanced systems and software technologies that meet and exceed service levels and deliver innovation and flexibility

ODC Scope

The diagram above indicates the broad scope of the Oracle optimized data center (dotted line) and its emphasis (darker color) towards the “infrastructure” i.e. storage, servers, system software (i.e. virtual machines and operating systems), and networks. The line is shown overlapping facilities at the bottom of the picture and business strategy at the top because it is necessary for an optimized data center to integrate into these layers.

What’s In the Optimized Data Center?

  • Integrated, pretested solutions and engineered systems for simplified IT, rapid, flexible deployment, and lower-cost operations
  • Key technologies that are built in throughout the stack, not just added on, including security, identity management, governance, risk, and compliance solutions
  • Reliability, availability, and serviceability (RAS) at every level
  • High availability support, including Oracle Platinum Services, a new industry standard for rapid response and resolution
  • Optimized storage solutions that offer industry leading Oracle software integration, storage efficiency, and performance that reduce storage purchases, simplify storage deployments, and reduce operational risks
  • Complete and automated lifecycle management for the entire data center

The Optimized Data Center will not only enable you to be more responsive to user needs, it will fundamentally change the way that you deliver IT services and elevate the value of IT in your company. Based on open standards, the Oracle Optimized Data Center is easily adapted to work with Oracle and non-Oracle technologies.


  • Simplifies current IT infrastructure to lower the operational costs and frees up capital for further innovation.
  • Reduces risk in deploying and running mission critical application services by using pre-integrated systems, apps and services
  • Provides extreme performance by introducing new solutions allowing customers to consolidate or scale up to release new services and ensure user quality of services
Oracle achieves the industry’s best performance, scalability and manageability by providing a tightly integrated
stack from low-level networking infrastructure all the way to a complete set of business applications. All this is managed by Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center and supported by pre-configured Engineered Systems and Optimized Solutions. The integration engineered into all these critical elements lead to substantially reduced complexity, increased IT flexibility and business agility, while reducing both cost and risk. The breadth of Oracle’s products related to the data center is unmatched in the industry today and therefore, Oracle can uniquely help companies deliver exceptional data center solutions.

Why Oracle?

Today’s IT environments have become so complex that in most enterprises the biggest chunk of IT budget is spent just keeping the lights on. The average company spends about three-quarters of its IT budget on integration, maintenance, and routine tasks. That leaves only 25 percent to invest in innovation. Oracle CEO Mark Hurd recently called IT complexity “the business innovation killer.”

At Oracle, we want to help you shift that spending balance. We help you simplify your IT environment so that you can free up money, time, and resources to invest in innovation. We do this by providing hardware and software that’s engineered to work together, in the cloud or on premises.
