Alternative Support to Deliver Higher ROI on Current Oracle Database Releases

Meet database needs with exceptional, independent service

Most Oracle Database support customers are likely frustrated with rising annual maintenance fees and costly forced upgrades.

Better model

Rimini Street support for Oracle Database goes beyond break/fix to include advisory services that address security, uptime, performance, licensing, and interoperability to ensure Oracle Database and all connected applications are available anytime they are needed.

Better people

Better outcomes

Save 50% on annual support fees and up to 90% on total maintenance costs.

Retain the flexibility to upgrade only when the business requires it. Savings can be reinvested to enable innovation where it can drive true business value, and help deliver a Business-Driven Roadmap. Extend the life and reduce the TCO of Oracle Database investments.

Compare the value

In addition to standard break/fix support for Oracle Database, Rimini Street also provides, at no extra cost, configuration support tailored to IT's specific deployments; performance tuning support for maximum throughput; and advisory services around security, interoperability, and upgrade issues. The Rimini Street comprehensive support package ensures resolution of issues no matter where the problem lies and receives high customer service ratings from former users of Oracle Database support services. These value-added services ensure Oracle Databases will operate smoothly for years to come. Savings from switching to Rimini Street Support from Oracle Database support allows for investment in other strategic initiatives or to augment hybrid IT strategies for increased flexibility and reduced TCO.
