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.
Over the past couple of weeks the costing for the Oracle Exalytics machine has been made public by Oracle and there has been a number of articles. What I’ve done in this blog post is to collate this information. I give what I understand to be the cost of purchasing an Exalytic machine and to get setup and running.
The pricing structure starts at
Exalytics machine + cost of BI Foundation Suite + TimesTen licences
Exalytics machine = $135,000
TimesTen = $34,500 per processor licence or $300 per named user(min 100 users)
BI Foundation Suite = $450,000 per processor licence or $3,675 per named user (same number of users as for TimesTen = min 100 users)
Annual Support Costs
Exalytics machine = $29,700
TimesTen = 22% of software licence – $7,590 per processor licence or $66 per named user (min 100 users)
BI Foundation Suite = $99,000 per processor licence or $809 per named user(min 100 users)
The Exalytics machine consists of a single server with 1TB of RAM and 4 Intel Xeon E7-4800 processors, with 10 cores each.
So the total cost of an Exalytics machine based on the processor licence will be something towards the $10M. Now this is before the discounts that you can negotiate. There are reports of discounts ranging up to 25% on hardware and 60% on software. The size of the discount is depended on your size etc. So this initial $10M cost could be reduced to $3M+.
Please note that I may have gotten some or all of this pricing wrong. If I have then forgive me and let me know what is wrong. I can correct it to ensure that we have the correct costs.

Several analytic tool vendors have added R-integration to their software. However, Oracle is the largest company to throw their weight behind R. On October 3, Oracle unveiled their integration of R: Oracle R Enterprise (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/features/features-oracle-r-enterprise-498732.html) as part of their Oracle Big Data Appliance announcement (http://www.oracle.com/us/corporate/press/512001).
Oracle R Enterprise allows users to perform statistical analysis with advanced visualization on data stored in Oracle Database. Oracle R Enterprise enables scalable R solutions, while facilitating production deployment of R scripts and Hadoop based solutions, as well as integration of R results with Oracle BI Publisher and OBIEE dashboards.
Check out the Oracle YouTube video (5min), that demos how an Exalytics application that can analyse almost a billion records instantly.
