searchoracle.techtarget.com — Oracle will release a new version of its Oracle Database Appliance on Tuesday that includes newer processors, more than twice as much memory, and an optional storage expansion rack similar to what's available on Exadata.

A SaaS model suffers from network latency anyway. Team that with I/O latency and it's just a losing model. Joel Gilbert, CTO, Pipkins Inc.
