New Whitepaper: Evolution from the Traditional Data Center to Exalogic: An Operational Perspective

IT organizations are struggling with the need to balance the day-to-day concerns of data center management against the business level requirements to deliver long-term value. This balancing act has proven difficult and inefficient: systems and application management tools are resource intensive and traditional infrastructure management architectures have developed over time on a project by project basis. These traditional management systems consist of multiple tools that require administrators to waste time performing too many steps to handle routine administrative tasks. Operational efficiency and agility in your enterprise are directly linked to the capabilities provided by the management layer across the entire stack, from the application, middleware, operating system, compute, network and storage. Only when this end to end capability is provided will we experience the full benefit of a scalable, efficient, responsive and secure datacenter.

Managing Exalogic is substantially less complex and error prone than managing traditional systems built from individually sourced, multi-vendor components because Exalogic is designed to be administered and maintained as a single, integrated system (Figure 1). It is at the forefront of the industry-wide shift away from costly and inferior one-off platforms toward private clouds and Engineered Systems.

New whitepaper: Operational Impact of Deploying Exadata

Traditionally, highly skilled and focused administrators have been responsible for managing individual portions of the technology stack. With engineered systems, lifecycle management becomes a more integrated and, ultimately, less complex environment. From a business perspective, the engineered system will result in improved performance and throughput along with reduced lifecycle management costs.
