Earlier this month, at Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c launch, we published a series of demos of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center 12c
managing various Oracle solutions from applications to hardware . You could see all of those demos by clicking the graphic below. Following the graphics below, I have a brief overview of an enterprise customer scenario and various demos highlighting the management of various systems .
A Step-by-Step Journey to Enterprise Clouds
A large global financial company serving millions of customers worldwide has
decided to investigate a private cloud infrastructure. They have multiple
business units and are located in multiple regions worldwide.
Their enterprise applications include Oracle Siebel CRM, Oracle E-Business
Suite Financials, and PeopleSoft HCM. They have recently added several Oracle
Fusion Applications modules to enhance their CRM and HCM capabilities. Over
time, they have also deployed a number of Java and web-based applications. They
use Oracle Solaris/SPARC environments for their E-Business Suite applications.
Their web servers, some of their application servers, and a number of the home
grown applications run on Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle x86 servers. They
have deployed Oracle virtualization solutions for x86 servers and SPARC.
This company is transitioning their IT to a private cloud environment to
support the CEO’s new corporate strategy to increase operational efficiency by
10% while growing the top line by 30% in two years. The IT organization, led by
their CIO, considered various options and concluded that achieving the CEO’s
objectives would require them to transition their enterprise applications to
the cloud, thereby creating real differentiation in how they service their
customers. They reviewed several vendors and concluded that their private cloud
solutions were adequate for small applications but too risky for enterprise
applications. They decided to go with the an Oracle solution because only
Oracle was able to demonstrate a proven solution to power enterprise
applications while also leveraging SPARC and x86 virtualization for a complete
cloud management solution.
They have already started to deploy Database-as-a-Service and Fusion
Middleware-as-a-Service clouds using Oracle Enterprise Manger Self Service
Application Portal. They plan to deploy Infrastructure-as-Service cloud based
on both SPARC and x86 servers with Oracle virtualization solutions and manage
them through Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center. They have recently deployed
many ExaData systems. They are starting to deploy ExaLogic and Super Clusters
Engineered systems as well to accelerate performance and time to market.
Integrated Linux Management in the Cloud
Linux Management functionality is available as part of Oracle Enterprise
Manager 12c and is available to Oracle Linux Basic and Premier Support
customers at no cost. The solution provides an integrated and cost-effective
solution for complete Linux server lifecycle management and delivers
comprehensive provisioning, patching, monitoring, and administration
capabilities via a single, web-based user interface thus significantly reducing
the complexity and cost associated with managing Linux operating system
Using these rich Linux management features along with the complete Oracle
Enterprise Manager product solution, the global financial company takes
advantage of enterprise-scale service level management, automated change and
configuration management, and comprehensive system and application performance
Integrated Lifecycle Management for Physical and Virtual Servers in the
Oracle VM offers server virtualization for both x86 and SPARC architectures
that enable the deployment of agile cloud infrastructures. Virtualized server
environments integrated with Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center allow you to
easily create, deploy, clone virtual servers, and live migrate workloads while
dynamically controlingcompute resources. Integrated lifecycle management of both
physical & virtual servers with Ops Center simplifies the daily
workflowneeded to control cloud infrastructures. This is one of the key reasons
why this company decided power their private cloud with Oracle virtualization
Oracle Solaris 11 – The First Cloud OS
With its new and improved features, Oracle Solaris brings mission-critical
enterprise class computing to cloud scale environments. These features include
extremely agile, no overhead virtualization, simplified software lifecycle
management, and built-in security across all layers. Oracle Enterprise Manager
Ops Center understands all these new technologies, and therefore is the perfect
tool to manage Oracle Solaris deployments at data center and cloud scales.
Manage Mission Critical Applications in the Cloud
Deploying and managing mission critical applications in cloud are one of the
key strategic interests of the enterprises. Oracle SPARC based
Infrastructure-as-a-Service ( IaaS ) offers the scale, reliability, and
performance needed for those mission critical applications. In this demo, you
will learn about how to manage SPARC server platforms, which is the foundation
of the enterprise cloud this global financial company wants to deploy The
Oracle SPARC technologies offers an extreme thread count and memory density in
a small and eco-friendly form factor. This company wanted to insure they could
leverage their existing SPARC population with not excluding new growth into the
T4 chassis models. They found Ops Center offered them complete coverage of
where they were the most invested.
Private PaaS and IaaS Cloud with Oracle Enterprise Manager
