The Spotlight is on You

On the field or off the field, in ballet slippers or singing your heart out on stage, offering a stellar performance every time is key to holding the attention of your audience and having them come back hungry for more. Similarly, showing up to a new business meeting wearing pink tights and a tutu might be one way to holding the attention of your customer, but offering them an unmatched and ground-breaking software solution certainly will get their attention!

Simply put, the Oracle Exastack program enables both ISV's and OEM's to rapidly build and deliver faster, more reliable applications. It comes as no surprise that the success of the Oracle Exastack program is centered on establishing Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud as the highest performance, lowest cost platforms available in the industry today.

But here is where the real standing-ovation-worthy facts come in. The Oracle Exadata Database Machine is the only database machine that provides extreme performance for both data warehousing and online transaction processing (OLTP) workloads, making it the ideal platform for consolidating onto private clouds. Whereas the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is an engineered hardware and software system tested and tuned by Oracle to provide the best foundation for cloud computing, while allowing Java applications, Oracle Applications and other enterprise applications to run with extreme performance. - And the crowd goes wild, ladies and gentlemen!

In just four months alone, our partners have already achieved over 150 Oracle Exastack Ready milestones for Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server. As Judson has said, "With the Oracle Exastack program, Oracle is helping partners test, tune and optimize their applications to deliver optimal performance and reliability, accelerating innovation and delivering superior value to customers."

And get this, not only are their applications running faster and more efficiently, they are actually being delivered at a lower cost to customers than ever before - extreme performance well deserving of 3 consecutive arabesques!

If you haven’t already, check out what some of our partners are saying about the Oracle Exastack program in this video, and find out all that is available to you today.

By participating in the Oracle Exastack program, partners now have the ability to achieve Oracle Exadata Optimized, Oracle Exalogic Optimized, Oracle Exadata Ready and Oracle Exalogic Ready status for their solutions.

  • New Oracle Exastack labs, provide OPN members with access to Oracle technical resources, on-premise facilities and remote lab environments.
  • With Oracle Exastack Optimized, partners experience faster and more reliable applications to run on the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, as well as the long awaited Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
  • Savvy OPN members are leveraging the Oracle Exastack Optimized program toward their advancement to Platinum or Diamond level in OPN.
  • Partners are achieving Oracle Exadata Ready and Oracle Exalogic Ready giving them a competitive advantage and signaling to customers that their applications readily support Oracle Exadata Database Machine or Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to deliver extreme performance.

Who Doesn’t Want Extreme Performance?

Extreme Makeover.  Extreme Couponing.  Even Extreme Angler.  The list of ‘Extreme’ TV goes on and on but we think the really exciting Extreme offering is with the Oracle Exastack program.   Launched in June and announced during Oracle’s FY12 Partner Kickoff the Oracle Exastack program is a stack of software based on Oracle servers, storage, and networking – engineered and optimized to work together. In essence, it’s the Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud. Together.  It’s the only platform you need for your on-premise or cloud-based solutions.   Listen in as Judson Althoff and Chris Baker discuss.

ISVs and partners can qualify and tune their applications with Oracle Exastack and become Oracle Exastack Ready and Oracle Exastack Optimized.  Oracle Exastack Ready means your applications have been tested and they support Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud component products including Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, Oracle Database and Oracle WebLogic Server. 

And about that performance thing, Oracle Exastack Optimized means your application has been tuned on Oracle Exadata Database Machine or Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to deliver optimum speed, scalability and reliability.  Want numbers? Java runs up to 10x faster.  Cash management transactions have run 20x-30x faster. 

And Oracle partners can leverage their Oracle Exastack Ready applications to meet some requirements for OPN’s Platinum or Diamond level specializations. That’s not all.   New partner enablement resources, dedicated Oracle Exastack labs, Guided Learning Paths, and exclusive benefits for ISVs and partners are all part of the Oracle Exastack offering.  Unleash yourself and check it out.

In the spirit of things we are going to be extremely detailed and even offer up the latest webcast on the topic because we just can’t say enough about Oracle Exastack – learn more here.

Extremely excited about Oracle Exastack,
