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.
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.
