Today we're announcing Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g Ops Center . With it, we're introducing true converged management for the Oracle hardware and systems platforms. While the broader Oracle Enterprise Manager suite offers true "Apps-to-Disk" management, Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center is now a one-stop-shop for the System Administrator that will let them manage more effectively than ever before.
New in this release, we've added the ability to manage Storage and Network devices -- in tandem with your servers, operating systems and virtualized guests. We've added deep integration with Oracle's database, middleware and application management tools. And, we've added integration with My Oracle support which will allow you to get minimize downtime in new ways.
There is a ton of things to cover about this new release, and I'll be making several postings here over the coming weeks about new features, but here is a teaser. Here is the new network management view in Ops Center (see screen shot below -- click to enlarge) looking at a "quarter rack" Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud system. Deep knowledge of Infiniband and Ethernet fabric management is just one of the cool new features you'll see in this new release of Ops Center.
Watch this space for a lot more detail on the release over the coming weeks. Feel free to post questions here and I'll do my best to answer them.
