Introducing the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance
By Chris Kawalek-Oracle on Aug 13, 2013
Today, Oracle introduced the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance. This new engineered system is built, designed, and tested for rapid and repeatable deployment of business-critical application workloads. To enable this, the appliance is comprised of a full-stack virtual environment, including Oracle VM Server for x86 designed for application-driven virtualization. The hardware and virtualization layer are both fully integrated with a fast InfiniBand fabric to provide the needed throughput for enterprise workloads. The entire system arrives pre-wired and configured – customers can go from dock to data center “power on” in an hour and deploy ready-to-run virtual machines in just minutes.
With over 100 Oracle VM Templates pre-defined, pre-configured and certified for Oracle Applications, users can deploy Oracle Real Application Cluster (RAC) or Oracle E-Business Suite 7x-10x faster than the manual methodology with other virtualization technologies. And to further enable multi-tier application workload deployment for application migration or private cloud deployment, Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder generated assemblies are also supported on the new appliance. Assemblies encapsulate application workloads along with deployment and management directives to simplify and standardize entire life cycle management which can be controlled from Oracle Enterprise Manager.
Whether you are looking to modernize your data center, migrate to private cloud, or looking for faster time to market in deployment of your application services in a pre-wired, virtualized infrastructure for development, QA, or production, you should have a look at the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance.
