Oracle releases Exalogic Elastic Cloud X3-2

The new release provides customers with enhanced performance for mission-critical, large scale private cloud deployments at the infrastructure-as-a-service layer

By CBR Staff Writer

Oracle has introduced Exalogic Elastic Cloud X3-2, the second hardware generation of its engineered system for running business applications.

Exalogic Elastic Cloud is hardware and software engineered application claimed to provide enhanced performance, reliability and scalability for Java, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Applications, Re-hosted CICS/IMS TP and other business applications.

The new Exalogic X3-2 builds on the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software 2.0 to provide customers with enhanced performance for mission-critical, large scale private cloud deployments at the infrastructure-as-a-service layer.

Oracle’s new release leverages Intel Core (Sandy Bridge) Xeon processors to deliver 3.5 times better application performance than the original Oracle Exalogic X2-2, the company said.

It incorporates 33% more CPU cores per configuration, increasing from 360 to 480 in an Oracle Exalogic Full Rack.

Exalogic Elastic Cloud X3-2 supports up to a 60x increase in application deployment density through the combination of hardware-assisted Single Root I/O Virtualization (SR-IOV), server virtualisation and increased physical RAM.

The Oracle’s new release supports up to 95% reduction in application deployment time by providing support for server, network and storage virtualisation, along with IaaS management. It also claims to support Oracle Exalogic’s new Trusted Partitions licensing model to allow flexible licensing of Oracle software.
