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.

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...
