Extended Support

for SuperCluster

 

o-prtnr-wht-rgb

 

The SuperCluster platform is a tightly integrated, high-performance appliance requiring a specialized, experienced team to support it properly.

Our team of senior architects and consultants have over 30 years of experience with Oracle Database and Engineered Systems such as SuperCluster.

All but one model of SuperCluster has reached the end of its support life with Oracle. Just because it has reached the end of support life with the OEM doesn't mean its reached the end of its useful life at your business!

The SuperCluster platform is a high performance, highly reliable system that can be run for many years to come, provided it has the proper support.

Let our experts help you to get there!

 

 

Expertise and technology

We have the expertise and technology needed to support, manage, patch, optimize and monitor your SuperCluster platform.

Natrinsic's Managed Services team currently supports data warehouse appliances for Fortune 500 companies around the world.

The Oracle SuperCluster T4, T5 and M6 systems have already reached the end of their support life with Oracle. The SuperCluster M7 recently came EOS in December 2022, and the M8 comes EOS next year. Natrinsic can help extend the useful life of these highly reliable appliances.
