Friday Spotlight: IaaS with Oracle VM and Oracle Enterprise Manager

Reap the Benefits of IaaS with Oracle Virtualization

IT customers are looking to reap the benefits of cloud computing, including at the Infrastructure layer. Their role is viewed as data center service providers. To them, Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), is internalized as Integration of "astonishing" applications and systems. It’s the proverbial duct taping of all the different components of IT infrastructure into a single cohesive intelligent controllable, predictable box from which they can direct all that happens to support their business. From their perspective, Oracle VM is the container and Oracle Enterprise Manager is both the duct tape and the control box for IaaS which has helped them to tame the complex infrastructure and quickly provision the “astonishing” applications, sometimes with wildly varying need for network, storage compute resources.

For an insightful perspective of IaaS from Oracle, join VP of Product Management for Oracle Enterprise Manager, Sudip Datta, in his chalk talk.

Oracle VM step-by-step hands-on labs now available on Oracle Technology Network

If you missed the Oracle VM labs in the Virtual Sysadmin Days recently, you can still run through the labs at your own pace. All three labs give you a good immersion of Oracle VM to prepare you for the next step of virtualizing Oracle Applications.

  • Lab 1 walks you through deployment of  Oracle VM, Oracle VM Manager and plan for an IaaS environment deployment.
  • Lab 2 introduces you to the power of Oracle VM Templates. By the time you are done, you will have deployed a 2-node RAC cluster.
  • Lab 3 empowers you with the basics to start a cloud infrastructure deployment, including storage.

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.

Read the entire 3-part article to see how NAB is deploying their private cloud.
