This week at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, Sun is demonstrating a complete end-to-end software stack designed to make it easy for customers to deploy and manage Oracle database solutions. Comprised of the Solaris 10 Operating System (OS), Sun Cluster 3.2, and the Sun N1 software suite, and Sun Fire servers, Sun's solution demonstrates the ability to deliver complete Oracle deployments on both x64 and SPARC-based systems with best-in-class high availability, manageability and performance for customers in enterprise and database grid markets.
The availability of this complete solution on AMD-based servers from Sun and other system vendors is generating tremendous interest at Sun's booth, #1402, on the floor at Moscone Center.
Using similar technology, Pixelpark AG automated its server and software installation and deployment processes for a 97% reduction in deployment time. "The saving compared with the former procedure amounts to 97% for application deployment alone," noted Uwe Bartels, System Architect, Pixelpark AG. "Jobs that used to occupy expensive system architects for three to four hours are handled by the automated solution in five minutes. I am delighted at the project's success."
