Oracle is today announcing Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Release 5, which simplifies the journey to the cloud. For the first time, you will be able to manage your hybrid cloud as one, from a single pane of glass.
According to a recent Computerworld survey, cloud consumers are struggling with security issues, integration headaches and performance concerns in public and hybrid cloud environments.
The latest release of Oracle Enterprise Manager addresses these concerns through new enhancements that manage, migrate, test and deploy applications and databases across hybrid clouds, with 100% reuse of existing management tools and practices. These enhancements will provide centralized visibility and control to Oracle customers on their cloud journey, while helping to ensure that their existing company-wide standards are applied across the estate. The following set of hybrid cloud features is now available for those using Oracle Database and Oracle Java Cloud Services:
Migrate on-premises IT assets to Oracle Cloud, or from Oracle Cloud to on-premises, with a single click
A simple, secure deployment architecture
This rich functionality is exposed through an extremely simple deployment architecture. Administrators will install the Oracle Enterprise Manager Hybrid Cloud Gateway to manage and encrypt all required communication between their existing on-premises Enterprise Manager and the Oracle Cloud Platform...and that’s it! With no additional network reconfiguration, Oracle customers can immediately begin to manage their hybrid estate as if it were one.
Customers, partners and analysts welcome Oracle’s hybrid cloud management approach
"e-DBA, an Oracle Platinum Partner and customer, has seen the benefits Oracle Enterprise Manager brings to our clients regardless of the size and complexity of their estate, which is why we also use it internally,” said Phil Brown, Global Lead for Enterprise Management Technologies, e-DBA. “Reusing our existing skills will accelerate adoption of the Oracle Cloud Platform since our hybrid cloud will be a natural extension of our existing estate, all seamlessly managed as one."
“As Bridge Consulting has expanded our Oracle footprint to include Oracle Cloud Platform, we have recognized the importance of centralized management control over our entire hybrid estate,” said Marco Bettini, Co-founder and CTO of Bridge Consulting. “The new Oracle Enterprise Manager capabilities are exactly what we need to ensure our hybrid cloud can be managed and consumed as one single environment, and we are especially glad we can leverage our existing best practices and knowledge across the entirety of our hybrid estate.”
“Our customers have consistently told us that they want to treat their hybrid cloud as a single unit, with workload portability as well as consistent governance across the entire estate,” said Dan Koloski, Senior Director of Product Management, Systems and Cloud Management, Oracle. “The latest release of Oracle Enterprise Manager provides customers the ability to lift-and-shift applications from on-premises to cloud and from cloud to on-premises, while leveraging all of the rich quality of service and lifecycle management capabilities they use today. We are excited to enable a hybrid cloud that truly functions as an extension of an on-premises data center.”
“IDC predicts that the majority of IT organizations will adopt a hybrid cloud strategy in the next five years. For these companies, a key success factor is the ability to consistently support workload monitoring, management and portability across on premises IT and public cloud services,” said Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, IDC. “Oracle customers who are evaluating a hybrid cloud strategy spanning Oracle on premises and public cloud databases, web services, backup services and development resources will be well served to consider the new Enterprise Manager hybrid cloud management capabilities.”
One of the most appealing aspects of this solution is that it is so simple to deploy and operate
