Datacenter consolidation produces efficient, powerful, flexible, and cost-effective computing environments for enterprises in every industry, while delivering the highest quality of service for mission-critical applications. But the process of datacenter consolidation can seem an overwhelming, time-consuming, and costly undertaking. The new Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is the industry’s first integrated cloud computing platform that combines hardware and software engineered by Oracle to work together for maximum performance and reliability. This offers customers a single enterprise cloud IT foundation and a scalable, fault-tolerant, and secure platform for datacenter consolidation.
Today, enterprise IT staff must provide next-generation cloud features while meeting ever-more-demanding performance and reliability requirements. Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud meets this challenge. The solution creates a network and virtualized computing environment to run all enterprise applications, featuring integrated and balanced storage and an optimized Java infrastructure designed for middle-tier applications such as Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle SOA Suite, and Oracle WebCenter Suite.

Oracle Solaris 11 Express delivers advanced Oracle Solaris features that have been in development over the past five years. Oracle Solaris 11 Express provides availability features that greatly reduce planned downtime by eliminating traditional patching- and maintenance- related reboots and vastly improving system boot time. It also adds network virtualization and resource management to the complete, built-in virtualization capabilities of Oracle Solaris, providing high-performance virtualization with low overhead.
Oracle Solaris 11 Express also powers Oracle’s Exadata Database Machine X2-2 and Exadata Database Machine X2-8 and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
“We are excited to announce the release of Oracle Solaris 11 Express to enable our customers to deploy the new advanced features of Oracle Solaris 11 across a broad set of platforms and our engineered systems: Oracle Exadata and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud,” says John F., executive vice president, Oracle Hardware. “Through the same engineering disciplines that achieved a legendary mission-critical reputation for Oracle Solaris, we are expecting Oracle Solaris 11 to further reduce any downtime by being quicker and easier to deploy, maintain, and update and to deliver a highly efficient virtualized operating system to meet the scale and performance requirements of immediate and future virtualization and cloud-based deployments.”

Things are heating up in the private cloud appliance world. Meet Exalogic Elastic Compute Cloud (EECC), which contains both a full server and storage hardware. It is not an appliance, it is much more!
Exalogic is an Engineered System: an assemblage of best-of-breed storage, compute, network, operating system and software products that are integrated, tested, tuned, optimized, delivered and supported by Oracle as a single factory-assembled unit. Exalogic is not an appliance (customers can disassemble the system and use the components for whatever they like, whenever they like, with full support from Oracle) and it is not a blue-print.
Exalogic is designed to provide extreme high performance, reliability, ease-of-use and versatility without being a proprietary, closed system with high total cost of ownership and vendor lock-in. Exalogic is everything enterprises love about both mainframes and open systems with none of the stuff they don’t. Exalogic is the realization of a new way of looking at the role of IT in the modern enterprise.
