3 Critical Considerations When Choosing Oracle Engineered Systems

Oracle engineered systems offer an entirely new solution to an old problem: namely, how can an organization achieve the long-term speed and performance they require, in a reliable, cost-effective package that’s easy to set up and deploy?

To succeed in that aim, there are three critical tasks you’ll want to take care of before you invest in Oracle engineered systems.

1. Choose for the Future

You know what your IT setup looks like now – and of course you know you need something more compact, efficient, and effective.

The good news: Top-of-the-line integrated hardware and software from Oracle engineered systems will be better than your current setup, no matter what you choose.

The bad news: Engineered systems are a long-term solution, and it’s extremely difficult to determine what technological capabilities your business will need in the years to come.

Flexible, easy-to-deploy Oracle solutions offer you the freedom you need to meet your future plans, no matter how they change. For instance, Exalytics helps you improve storage and usage activities for data analytics, and Exadata provides the performance & elastic database storage your business will need as you evolve.

The right Oracle consultant will have full stack expertise in your specific industry so they can help you identify the source of your current performance limitations. Once they do that, they’ll be able to suggest creative, cost-effective remedies that not only overcome your tech limitations, but also prepare you to stay ahead of future industry challenges.

2. Maintain Your Flexibility

The beauty of Oracle’s engineered systems lies in their capability to seamlessly flow between on-premises and cloud functionality. This is made possible by the fact that these solutions run on the same technology and same operational model as Oracle Cloud.

In fact, some powerful Oracle systems, such as Oracle Private Cloud Appliance, help you ease the transition to the cloud with a private cloud solution that handles everything from compute, network, and storage capabilities for you, so it’s easy to transition to the cloud when you’re ready.

With a properly configured Oracle Private Cloud Appliance solution, your business will be ready for the public cloud when you are, but this also means your Oracle system setup is crucial to its overall performance. The right setup can mean the difference between a months-long migration process… or a minutes-long process. Which would you prefer?

A consultant who is experienced with everything that Oracle offers, from apps to iron, will have the ability to design the correct architecture to meet your exact needs, now and for the future, so you can run your business where you want, how you want, and when you want.

3. Manage Your Solution

Though the integrated model of Oracle’s engineered systems greatly simplifies both setup and deployment, it doesn’t do everything for you. In order to keep your system working smoothly, you’ll still need in-depth knowledge on how to manage your infrastructure and applications.

Luckily, it’s easy to simplify management tasks.

A small number of Oracle consultants are certified to manage your solutions for you; these professionals are called MSPs (managed service providers). Some MSPs have the flexibility to manage both Oracle and non-Oracle workloads, which empowers your company to choose the applications you prefer – now and in the years to come.

When you choose an Oracle-certified MSP, you’ll know that your Oracle engineered system will be fully optimized at all times, so you get the most out of your investment. Choose a provider that fully understands the Oracle tool you’re using, whether it’s Exadata, Exalogic, Exalytics or another top-rated Oracle solution.
