Oracle this week announced the Oracle Optimised Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure, a fully integrated, pre-tested solution which helps accelerate enterprise Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud deployments.

The new solution leverages Oracle’s unique ability to engineer and integrate key infrastructure components and speed virtual machine deployment times by up to 98 per cent, lowering TCO and improving productivity for enterprises and cloud service providers. 



The Oracle Optimised Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure combines Oracle’s Sun Blade server modules, Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux, Oracle’s ZFS Storage Appliance, and Oracle VM, the only VM fully certified and supported with Oracle Database, Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Applications. With Oracle Enterprise Manager 11g the solution can be managed and supported as a single system.

Oracle Consulting is available to complement the solution with assessment, architecture and implementation services to help ensure optimal deployment. Additionally, Oracle Advanced Customer Services offers production readiness, installation, mission critical support and preventative monitoring services to help customers achieve operational readiness and high availability to maximise the value of enterprise cloud infrastructure investments.

The new solution provides an ideal foundation for IaaS and extends Oracle’s rich portfolio of cloud offerings which includes Oracle On Demand, cloud services, as well as comprehensive Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) products.

The Oracle Optimised Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure is endorsed by the Intel® Cloud Builders program as an effective way to quickly deploy IaaS cloud capabilities.

“Oracle is radically simplifying cloud deployment with a pre-tested, single vendor solution for enterprise cloud infrastructure,” said Ali Alasti, Vice President of Hardware Development, Oracle. 

“By engineering our hardware and software together, the Oracle Optimised Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure cuts deployment time from weeks to hours and helps customers get virtualised infrastructure up and running faster.” 

“The Oracle Optimised Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure, based on Intel Xeon processor-based Oracle blade servers, provides a solid blueprint for true enterprise-class IaaS deployments,” said Pauline Nist, general manager, Mission Critical Segment, Datacenter Group, Intel. 

 “Oracle’s solution is a welcome addition to the Intel Cloud Builders program, and opens the door for ongoing engagement and innovation in cloud computing.”
