Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 Becomes Non-Qualifying

After July 1st 2015, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 Specialization no longer qualifies for the Specialization Benefits, however specialized partners will retain their Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 Specialization until the version of the product reaches End of Service Life (EOSL).

This specialization has been replaced by Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is a datacenter building block that integrates compute, networking and storage hardware with virtualization, operating system and management software. It provides breakthrough performance, reliability, availability, scalability and investment protection for the widest possible range of business application workloads, from middleware and custom applications to packaged applications from Oracle and hundreds of 3rd party vendors, in both conventional and cloud deployments. As an Oracle Engineered System, Oracle Exalogic delivers faster deployment, higher user productivity, lower TCO, reduced risk and one-stop support.
