I don't have a lot of details around this but there is a bunch of noise on various blogs and web sites about the new database announcement coming next week at Oracle OpenWorld. while no one has been able to confirm the rumors it appears that Oracle has several customers testing a Beta version of a data warehouse appliance based on HP servers.

Larry Ellison quote from June conference call:

We are not going to sit on our laurels. We have a major database innovation that we will announce in September of this year. It is going to be a very big and important announcement for us, so we are not standing still in database.

If they roll out their own appliance it will prove me wrong as I really thought that they would purchase appliance technology this year to keep up with Teradata, Netezza and most recently Microsoft who just closed their deal with appliance vendor Datallegro. I am sure we will get all the details next week but for the time being here are a few interesting links.

Interesting rumor for sure according to this blog the deal is waiting on the blessing from the SAP board. Hmm... that will have interesting ripple effect in the industry. Teradata has long been a rumored acquisition target and the buzz has gotten load since the separation from NCR. I've recently wondered aloud if SAS might buy Teradata but the market cap is at 3.94 billion so perhaps its too big a bite for SAS?

Teradata has made a lot of noise in the space this year with their appliance offering and even added an additional product to the line up this past week.

And another...
