Oracle and Dell offer server/database bundle

Oracle and Dell are offering a package featuring a Dell PowerEdge server bundled with the Oracle Database10g Standard Edition One database and the Microsoft Windows Server 2003 operating system. 

Part of Oracle's "go-to-market" agreement with Dell, the package is intended to enable ease of deployment and also provide easier database management.

A customised dashboard enables users to perform common Oracle administration tasks while the one-stop purchasing approach provides hardware and software with a contract to licence the database.

The package is available from Dell featuring a PowerEdge 2850 server. The platform will be available with a PowerEdge 2800 server in the fourth quarter of this year. 

Prices for the PowerEdge 2850 bundle start at about $15,000 (£8,384), including a Dell PowerVault 220S external storage system. The PowerEdge 2800 package will start at about $8,000. 

Dell and Oracle have previously offered a package featuring Dell PowerEdge 2600 or 2650 hardware, an Oracle database, and the Red Hat Linux or Windows operating system.
