Viewlets for the Exalogic Templates for Siebel and E-Business Suite

A number of Applications virtual templates for Exalogic have been recently released. Amongst them are E-Business Suite and Siebel Templates. As part of the effort to support the pre-sales activities a recorded overview of the deployment of the templates have been prepared . These recordings or viewlets can be shown to customers as an introduction to virtualization in Exalogic: during the recordings we demonstrate how the templates can be downloaded, the Exalogic machine resources allocated and the templates deployed.

These videos are not in depth explanations but are designed to give the viewer a taste of what can be achieved. They can be used to open a discussion with customers about the ease of use/speed of deployment and general strategic direction Oracle is adopting to further simplify the adoption of Engineered systems amongst the Oracle applications customer base.

Alongside the recordings there is also a brief explanation of what is being shown to further allow the user to enhance any presentation that includes them. Please watch the viewlets and then have a read of the notes that accompany it and good luck using them!

New Whitepaper on Exalytics Operational Management

Jules Lane, Manageability Solution Architect at Oracle has written two new whitepapers describing the manageaility aspects of the Exalytics platform.

Improved performance and capacity and a more agile project implementation are primary drivers for Exalytics, however, a great additional benefit is the potential to reduce administration and management costs by 20-40% as compared to traditional platforms, hence dramatically reducing the Total Cost of Ownership.

The target audience is operations managers and team leaders and technical architects.

  • Part 1 is sales oriented and discusses the potential offered by Exalytics for more than 20-40% savings in the costs of operational management of Oracle B.I. systems, and what actions should be taken to fully realize it. These relate to people (and their organisation structure), processes and technology.
  • Part 2 is more post sales oriented and has a summary of the key points in Part 1 one but also a detailed discussion of best practices around carrying out the actual administration tasks for each part of the Exalytics stack.
