Oracle Competes With SQL Server In Small Business Market

April 27, 2004

By embedding more of Oracle's database software on Dell servers as part of a low-cost bundle, Oracle hopes to raise its profile in the small business market. 

In his InternetNews article,, Clint Boulton writes;

"Just like the deal they struck last year, the latest Dell-Oracle pairing would help Oracle position against rival Microsoft, whose SQL Server database competes with Oracle's database products in the low end of the market. Oracle has been cutting the cost of its database products in the past year, and offered a one processor, sub-$1,000 9i option for small businesses. "

Securities firm SG Cowen comments in the article on recent price reductions;

"The marketing deal extends Oracle's recent price cutting on its Standard Edition One database," the firm said in a research note. "The Dell-Oracle combination is available for as little as $4,108. Oracle recently cut the list price for its standard-edition database to $4,995."
