July 27, 2014 (Fri): Oracle Corporation, the world’s leading IT solution provider, today unveils its new Virtual Compute Appliance to simplify the deployment and management of converged infrastructures for virtually any application or Cloud service.
“Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance offers value that other converged infrastructure can’t match. By engineering hardware and software together, Oracle has created an engineered system that’s highly available and extensible even after acquisition,” said Wim Coekarts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle.
“By adding new features through software, Oracle makes it easy for customers to deploy new business services rapidly, providing them the agility and flexibility they need to grow. We’re already seeing strong response from customers running traditional enterprise applications and from cloud service providers.”
Virtual Compute Appliance enables organisations to get both Oracle and third-party applications or services up and running with minimal time spent provisioning and configuring the system. As a result, the new solution can significantly reduce cost and complexity with excellent performance.
With it, business organisations can consolidate Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, other Linux distributions, and Microsoft Windows applications onto one platform with the Virtual Compute Appliance. The application and service deployment is further streamlined by using Oracle VM templates for over 100 Oracle software packages which can reduce deployment from days to hours and minutes.
In addition, the Virtual Compute Appliance is an ideal platform for cloud, supporting Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and database as a service (DBaaS) deployments with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.
To succeed in today’s fast-moving business environment, modern businesses must be able to deploy innovative new applications and react to marketplace changes at a moment’s notice. Oracle’s Virtual Compute Appliance allows companies to streamline these critical tasks with a single, integrated system designed to run virtually any application and support cloud services.
With the Virtual Compute Appliance, customers get a converged infrastructure solution that can consolidate nearly all of data center workloads into a powerful, fault tolerant platform that is easy to use, grow and manage.
