Sun Database Platform 6500/5200
Product Update
October 22, 2001,
Volume 44, Issue 4

The Database Platform 6500/5200, from the SunToneTM Platforms Offerings, offers a new pre-installed software image with more recent versions of VERITAS, Oracle and Sun (VOS) products. It also brings further storage flexibility, the convenience of a single recovery DVD and cheaper installation service options for rack-mounted SunToneSM Platforms.

Configured to engineering best practices, fully interoperability tested, and factory-integrated, Database Platforms provide for a tightly integrated database infrastructure of best-of-breed hardware and software including Oracle database, VERITAS storage management software and the SolarisTM Operating Environment (Solaris OE).

New features include:

  • Veritas Database Edition 2.2 for Oracle (including VxVM 3.1.1 & VxFS 3.4)
  • Oracle 8i Enterprise Edition (8.1.7 64 bit)
  • Solaris 8 (7/01) OE with patches
  • Dun TM Component Manager 2.2
  • SunMC 3.0
  • Live Upgrade 2.0
  • Configuration Service Tracker 2.0
  • Solaris 8 OE Documentation (Answerbook)
  • Online documentation for VERITAS and Oracle products
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0

Although storage previously was a mandatory component of Database Platforms, it will be optional in the future. The recommended storage configuration is the 2400 GB A5200 disk arrays with Database Platform 6500/5200. This is the most reliable storage choice. The A5200s will be factory integrated at no additional charge. If customers decide to purchase or use other storage rather than Sun products with Database Platforms, any problems attributed to that storage product will be the responsibility of the customer and the storage vendor to resolve.

In addition, you can receive up to 30 percent discount on ServerStart and ArrayStart services for rack-mounted SunToneTM Platforms. Please note that the Sun EnterpriseTM 6500 server includes ServerStart in its purchase price.

IPG-ARRAY-INS-BAS2: Sun StorEdgeTM ArrayStart installation service Base Charge applicable only for rack mounted SunTone Platforms. ArrayStart Base Charge plus Per-Tray Charge provides software installation and configuration of Sun StorEdge Arrays. IPG-ARRAY-PER-TRAY: Sun StorEdge ArrayStart installation service Per-Tray Charge applicable only for rack-mounted SunTone Platforms.
