NAB Builds Private Cloud with Oracle VM and Oracle Linux

Check out this recently published article in the CIO Magazine talking about National Australia Bank's (NAB) roadmap to building a private cloud, focused on Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS).

NAB has standardized on Oracle VM and Oracle Linux as the enabling technoligies for their IaaS cloud efforts.

Here are some excerpts from the article:

The IT leaders at NAB aren't holding back when it comes to the full-scale deployment of a private Cloud. Ubank, NAB's online-only banking service launched in October 2008, is already the flagship 'tenant' and running almost exclusively on virtualised infrastructure -- from the operating system to Web portal.

UBank is the first 'user' of NAB's new enterprise technology platform, but plans for expansion into the rest of the bank are very ambitious.

From the hardware up, NAB engineered a private Cloud based on Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle's (Xen-based) virtualisation platform for infrastructure-as-a-service.

"So in our environment we're basically building up what we refer to as an infrastructure-as-a-service internal private Cloud, based on Oracle virtual grid technology and blade servers underneath that as well," Beer said. "It's a combination of both VMs and physical server deployments [and] operating systems in that environment.
