, by Tom Plunkett, TJ Palazzolo,
and Tejas Joshi, Oracle Press.
The well-known characteristics and tiers of cloud computing have
spawned myriad implementations by a host of vendors and system
integrators. One of these, Oracle's
Exalogic Elastic Cloud, part of Oracle's family of
Engineered Systems, is a key
component of Oracle's public and private cloud computing solutions,
providing critical PaaS (Platform as a Service) features for cloud
developers. These developers need guidance to take advantage of
Exalogic's extensive capabilities, and the Oracle Exalogic Elastic
Cloud Handbook, written by three highly experienced Oracle
technologists, provides that guidance.
Part One of the book covers Exalogic's hardware and software
components, and includes a very useful chapter on deployment examples,
describing best practices for scalabiity, availability, backup and
recovery, and multi-tenant security, including integration with
other Oracle Engineered Systems and products such as Exadata and
Part Two is a thorough guide to Exalogic installation features,
configuration and monitoring, packaged application software management,
and scalable application development.
The book also provides an extensive list of online resources,
including pointers to Web sites, whitepapers, instructional videos,
and other Oracle documentation.
So, if you're planning to implement Exalogic as part of your cloud
infrastructure, or are considering such, you'll find lots of sage
advice and best practices in this handbook.
