Oracle Unveils Next Generation Virtual Compute Appliance

Latest Engineered System Offers Turnkey Converged Infrastructure Solution for Private Clouds and Virtually Any Application

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/24/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
To succeed in today's fast-moving business environment, modern businesses must be able to deploy innovative new applications and react to marketplace changes at a moment's notice. Often, integrating compute, network and storage infrastructure from several vendors, then provisioning and configuring these systems becomes a central impediment to the responsiveness required. Oracle's Virtual Compute Appliance allows companies to streamline these critical tasks with a single, integrated system designed to run virtually any application and support cloud services.

With the Virtual Compute Appliance, customers get a converged infrastructure solution that can consolidate nearly all of data center workloads into a powerful, fault tolerant platform that is easy to use, grow and manage.

Oracle executives Scott Genereux and Wim Coekaerts will host a Webcast at 10 a.m. PT today to discuss Oracle's latest Virtual Compute Appliance.

News Facts

  • Oracle's Virtual Compute Appliance radically simplifies the way customers install, deploy, and manage converged infrastructures for virtually any application or cloud service.
  • Oracle is the only converged infrastructure vendor offering a complete, integrated solution with hardware and software engineered together.
  • As a result, the Virtual Compute Appliance can significantly reduce cost and complexity with excellent performance.
  • The Virtual Compute Appliance enables customers to get both Oracle and third-party applications or services up and running with minimal time spent provisioning and configuring the system.
  • Application and service deployment is further streamlined by using Oracle VM templates for over 100 Oracle software packages which can reduce deployment from days to hours and minutes.
  • Customers can consolidate Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, other Linux distributions, and Microsoft Windows applications onto one platform with the Virtual Compute Appliance.
  • The Virtual Compute Appliance is an ideal platform for cloud, supporting Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and database as a service (DBaaS) deployments, with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.
  • Many customers are already using the Virtual Compute Appliance to offer private cloud services to clients who use Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Hyperion, Oracle Database and other Windows applications.
  • For added investment protection, the Virtual Compute Appliance can accommodate business growth by expanding one server at a time and mixing server generations in the same base rack.
  • The Virtual Compute Appliance also supports Oracle Trusted Partitions, which gives customers the flexibility to license Oracle software on a vCPU basis.
  • The Virtual Compute Appliance can expand storage capacity quickly and easily with Oracle ZS3 Series storage systems while increasing throughput and reducing latency in high-density virtualized environments. When deployed with Oracle software and the Virtual Compute Appliance, the ZS3 Series provides unique Application Engineered Storage capabilities, unavailable with third-party products, which help improve performance and increase storage and management efficiency.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
