Products

Breakpoint builds infrastructure solutions that work for your business.

Servers

For customers that are already or will soon become Oracle application and/or database customers, we will recommend they seriously consider running their applications Oracle servers whether SPARC or x86, using Oracle’s operating system (Solaris for SPARC and X86, or Linux for x86) and thereby reaping the benefits of the so-called Oracle Red Stack. For non-Oracle, cost conscious customers requiring x86 servers, we offer the expanded range of servers from Supermicro. For those customers for whom cost is less of a concern and we can offer x86 servers from IBM.

Storage

Our primary NAS/SAN storage offering are the products from NetApp that seamlessly integrate into just about every possible application environment. For customers that are already or will soon become Oracle application and/or database customers, we will recommend they seriously consider using Oracle storage devices whether ZFS storage appliances or Axiom Storage devices thereby reaping the benefits of the so-called Oracle Red Stack. Supermicro provide excellent cost-effective storage servers with J BOD expandability, while IBM provide appealing direct attached storage devices.

Networking

We offer network switches from both Cisco and Extreme Networks, and firewalls from Cisco. Application Delivery Controllers perform an ever increasingly important function by ensuring application acceleration, handling load balancing between servers, SSL offloading, serving as a Web application firewall and rate shaping. We offer the ADC products from f5. InfiniBand is a switched fabric communications link which was originally used in High Performance Computing solutions which is rapidly finding its way into enterprise datacentres. We offer Infiniband switches and HBAs from Mellanox.

Database

We offer Oracle database for enterprise customers and Oracle MySQL for the more cost conscious customer.
