New Environment-as-a-Service Demo
By Alexandra Huff-Oracle on Apr 22, 2014
Environment-as-a-Service provides a comprehensive approach to delivering turnkey application environments, giving organizations the flexibility to quickly deploy, maintain and decommission environments, while lowering the total cost of software delivery, and reducing the time required for delivery of new application releases.
This tremendous flexibility allows enterprises to clone existing
environments in a matter of minutes, which otherwise takes hours
or days. In today's SaaS world, vendors must accommodate
frequently changing versions of their applications. Exalogic, in
conjunction with ZFS, provides a fast, efficient way to retain all
application versions and clone environments as needed, using the snapshot
capability of ZFS.
Early this month, Accenture hosted the AOLC (Accenture Oracle Leadership Council) in Miami, Florida, a program designed for a cross-industry executive audience from leading global organizations. At this conference, Accenture demonstrated EaaS on Exalogic. For the demo, they cloned EBS, PeopleSoft and Accenture Foundation Platform For Oracle (or AFPO, an integrated stack of Oracle SOA, IDM and WebCenter) environments in matter of minutes.
The demo team created 48 PeopleSoft, 23 eBusiness Suite and 19
AFPO environments during the two and a half days. These 90
environments would typically require anywhere from several weeks
to well over three months, working around the clock! They also
demonstrated the provisioning of not only the
application, but the infrastructure as well; that is, new
environments can be provisioned along with all associated
resources and VMs in a completely automated fashion.
