IT organizations are adopting private clouds as a stepping-stone to business-driven,
self-service IT. Successful implementations hinge on the ability to efficiently
deploy and manage cloud services at enterprise scale. Having a complete
cloud management solution integrated with an enterprise-class technology
stack is a fundamental requirement for IT. Oracle
Enterprise Manager 12c

helping businesses become more agile and responsive, while reducing cost,
complexity, and risk.

  • “Lawrence
    Livermore National Laboratory has a strong tradition of technology breakthroughs
    and leadership. As a member of Oracle’s Customer Advisory Board
    for Oracle Enterprise Manager, we have consistently provided feedback
    and guidance in the areas of enterprise-scale cloud, self-diagnosability,
    and secure administration for the product,” said Tim Frazier,
    CIO, NIF and Photon Sciences, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
    “We intend to take advantage of the Release 4 features that support
    enterprise-scale availability and fine-grained security capabilities
    for private cloud deployments.”
  • “IDC's most
    recent CloudTrack survey shows that most enterprises plan to adopt hybrid
    cloud architectures over the next three years,” said Mary Johnston
    Turner, Research Vice President, Enterprise System Management Software,
    IDC. “These organizations plan to deploy a wide range of workloads
    into cloud environments including mission critical database and middleware
    services that require high levels of fault tolerance and disaster recovery.
    Such capabilities were traditionally custom configured for each application
    but cloud offers the possibility to incorporate such properties within
    the service definition, enabling organizations to adopt cloud without
    compromise. With the latest release of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c,
    Oracle is providing customers with an out-of-the-box experience for
    delivering highly-resilient cloud services for databases and applications.”
  • “Since its
    inception, Oracle has been leading the way in innovative, scalable and
    high performance solutions for the enterprise. With this release of
    Oracle Enterprise Manager, we are extending this leadership by providing
    enterprise-scale capabilities for planning, delivering, and managing
    private clouds. We call this ‘zero-to-cloud – accelerated.’
    These enhancements help our customers to expedite their adoption of
    cloud computing and prepares them for the next generation of self-service
    IT,” said Prakash Ramamurthy, senior vice president of Systems
    and Cloud Management at Oracle.
