### Update on Exalytics Pricing

Posted on

In my previous blog post (Exalytics : How much will it cost me ?) I gave an outline of the pricing you might expect for an Exalytics machine.

The final pricing that I gave of approx \$3+M was based on the per processor licencing.

Yesterday (24th Jan) the Oracle Business Intelligence blog by Manan, included the pricing based on the per user licences.

The following is a breakdown of the Exalytics pricing based on the minimum 100 user licencing.

Licence Costs (100 users)

Exalytics machine = \$135,000

TimesTen = \$300 x 100 users = \$30,000

BI Foundation Suite = \$3,675 x 100 users = \$367,500

Giving a grand total of \$532,500.

Support Costs (100 users)

But we need to add the annual support costs to this.

Exalytics machine support = \$29,700.

TimesTen support = \$66 x 100 users = \$6,600

BI Foundations suite = \$809 x 100 users = \$80,900

Total support costs (100 users) = \$116,500

First year & on-going costs costs

Total first year cost for an Exalytics machine = \$532,500 + \$117,200 = \$649,700

Plus on going annual support costs of \$117,200 in year 2 and subsequent years.

Discounted Costs

If you are one of the lucky customer who can If I use the same discounts, as I did in my previous blog post, of 25% discount on hardware and 60% discount on the software, we get:

Year 1 cost of : (\$135,000*0.75) + (\$397,500*0.40) = \$260,250

So it might be possible to get an Exalytics machine for \$260+K, plus annual support costs.
