With its July 2011 purchase of Pillar Data Systems, Oracle has added the Pillar Axiom 600 storage system to its expanding range of storage products.

To those valuable generic capabilities, Axiom adds specific value, such as the use of pervasive “Quality of Service” (QoS) and application profiles, which—together with integration with Oracle features and products such as Hybrid Columnar Compression and Storage Archive Manager (SAM)—make it very well-suited to hosting Oracle Database and Oracle Applications offerings.

Oracle will provide support for existing Oracle/Itanium customers on today’s products — but customers looking to take advantage of future features and functions will be forced to switch platforms.
As Joe Clabby once told a reporter: “if my CIO brought me a recommendation to buy an Itanium-based server — I’d fire that CIO. From our perspective, the server market is in the midst of major consolidation and realignment.
x86, Power Systems, and System z are experiencing solid growth, whilst Oracle’s Sun SPARC lines are suffering — as are HP’s Itanium lines.
