Oracle Open World - Clouds Roll In
By:/ on: 10-02-2012
This week Oracle unveiled its new IaaS (Infrastructure as a service) cloud computing service. Clients may now choose between Oracle cloud hosting storage, virtualized computing or a managed hosting cloud service positioned behind company firewalls.
New Database Management System
Oracle's multi-tenant database management system (Version 12C) features a huge boost in memory along with an integrated OS and storage service. Oracle systems are engineered for seamless integration and are linked with Infiniband (a high quality-low latency switch) making for a fast and reliable connection.
Hardware and software are engineered to work together providing customers with the flexibility to move applications between an Oracle managed cloud or a private cloud of their choice. Added flexibility means that Oracle cloud management is highly scalable, easy to backup and optimized for disaster recovery.
Seven Years - Billions Invested
After seven years and billions invested, Oracle's engineering vision has finally come to fruition. The main component of the Oracle Cloud is the Exadata X3 Database In-Memory Machine. Through Infiniband networking the X3 database is able to store hundreds of Terabytes of compressed data from Flash or RAM memory. The X3's smart memory caching means that a huge number of user databases can be accessed and stored quickly within a single server rack. Moving forward Oracle hopes to provide users with the ability to run any database application on a highly scalable architecture while maintaining a cost effective price point.
