The Future of Cloud Data Center

I often dream of a push button deployment and provisioning of massive racks consisting rows of systems that can just run, no manual intervention needed, no cabling/wiring, no troubleshooting. Turn it on, and voila! it automatically configures everything up from scratch, all the way including all the networking setup, storage, virtualization, OS, to the application.

Now, that will not only save time and energy, but also enables consistency across data center administration, architectural planning, and just operation in general. In the end it affects the bottom line.

OVCA brings that 0-maintenance, low-cost IaaS appliance, push-button Cloud provisioning to reality. Our first customer had a very successful deployment of OVCA and that's only the beginning. They are happily running virtual machines images now in their DCs, with very minimal intervention. OVCA together with OVMM run as a daemon to monitor and control all the VM related activities, including detecting new hardware, migrating VMs and balancing VMs in the VM server pool, and so on and so forth.

It's just way cool! Most importantly, it just WORKS.

I am new in this group, but I've been impressed with the product that's relatively young. This is going to really change the way Cloud companies do business.

Will OVCA work with DBFS?

If you run Oracle DB version which supports DBFS, sure.
There's a certain degree of separation between OVCA and what I believe you are referring to as DBFS, so not sure if this answers the question. OVCA is an IaaS in a box, which facilitates running VMs, Virtual OS, and on top of that Applications. There are Oracle DB OVM templates you can use to deploy Oracle DB on OVCA which will enable you to use DBFS.

About

Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance or OVCA enables Cloud in data centers from zero to running applications within hours.

OVCA is an IaaS appliance rack (note the word appliance) consisting of Oracle x86 latest hardware, Oracle IB Fabric Director (Xsigo), and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance for its management metadata storage.

Utilizing Oracle Virtual Machine (OVM), Oracle Linux (OL), and Oracle Cluster File System 2 (OCFS2), OVCA provides a highly redundant set up from networking, to OVM cluster management, to running applications.

OVCA enables customers to run any image created for OVM, which spans multiple OS's including RedHat Linux, and MS Windows.
