Oracle has introduced Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2, a cloud application infrastructure for consolidating an array of Java and non-Java application types and meeting demanding service-level requirements.
The new Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 is an engineered hardware and software system combining 64-bit x86 processors, an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with its WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Solaris or Linux OS system software.
The new offering supports thousands of Java and non-Java applications with differing security, reliability and performance requirements making it an ideal platform for enterprise-wide data centre consolidation.
The company said that the new offerings are optimised for integration with its Database 11g, Real Application Clusters and the Exadata Database Machine.
In addition, the Exalogic Elastic Cloud provides a tuned combination of hardware and software that allows different components of a Java application to interact with essentially zero-copy I/O, enabling as much as a 12x improvement in handling workloads such as Web requests.
The new offering also enables a high level of fault tolerance with near-instant failover and 100% isolation of applications, allowing enterprises to consolidate numerous mission-critical applications on a single system with extremely low risk.
Oracle Fusion Middleware senior vice president Hasan Rizvi said they are excited to announce the availability of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and for their customers to achieve the unmatched Java application performance and reliability, virtually unlimited scale and previously unimagined management simplicity of this engineered system.
