What is a database appliance?

A database appliance is a pre-packaged or pre-configured, balanced set of hardware (servers, memory, storage and input/output channels), software (operating system, database management system [DBMS] and management software), service and support. It is sold as a unit with built-in redundancy for high availability and positioned as a platform for DBMS use in online transaction processing (OLTP) and/or data warehousing (DW).
