Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud: A Brief Introduction
Turning IT from a Cost Center to a Profit Center
One of the many solutions to controlling IT costs that has emerged lies, as the Oracle white paper "Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud: A Brief Introduction" explains, in transforming IT from a cost center to a profit center. Such a transformation, the paper continues, typically involves adoption of a more centralized, automated, and elastic infrastructure which is commonly referred to as private cloud. The Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is the world‘s first engineered system specifically designed to provide enterprises with a foundation for secure, mission-critical private cloud capable of virtually unlimited scale, unbeatable performance, and previously unimagined management simplicity. By implementing the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, the white paper promises that enterprises will accelerate the performance of Java applications by as much as 14X; improve reliability and scalability beyond even the most mission-critical requirements; and reduce deployment effort by up to 95% and reduce costs by as much as 60%.

Whitepaper - Oracle Exadata Innovations Drive Greater Customer Value
Author Examines Performance Increases in Third Gen Exadata Machines
The performance increases available from the newest generation of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine are analyzed in the white paper "Exadata Innovations Drive Greater Customer Value in Third Generation" by Merv Adrian, now a Gartner analyst. Adrian explains how coordinated development of the entire product stack—from storage server to compute server to operating system to database and surrounding software—has created innovations in the latest generation of Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 and X2-8 configurations that drive additional value for customers. He includes success stories from such companies as Hokuriku Coca-Cola Bottling, Allianz Managed Operations and Services, and Bokwang Familymart, each of which experienced significant gains from their respective adoptions of the Oracle Exadata System.

Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3
Tested, Integrated High Availability and Disaster Recovery Solution
Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3, the latest update of Oracle Solaris Cluster, is built on the solid foundation of Oracle Solaris and offers the most extensive Oracle enterprise High Availability and Disaster Recovery solutions for the largest portfolio of mission-critical applications. Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 has been integrated and thoroughly tested with Oracle's Sun servers, storage, connectivity solutions and Solaris 10 features, and is now additionally qualified with Solaris Trusted Extensions, enabling support for Infiniband for general networking or storage usage.

Oracle Solaris Cluster 3.3 can be deployed with Oracle Unified Storage in Campus Cluster configurations. It now extends its applications support to new Oracle applications such as Oracle Business Intelligence, PeopleSoft, TimesTen, and MySQL Cluster. This single, integrated HA and DR solution enables multi-tier deployments in virtualized environments, and in this release, Oracle Solaris Containers clusters supports even more configurations including additional applications (Oracle WebLogic Server, Siebel CRM, and more) and integration with Oracle Solaris Cluster Geographic Edition.

Linux Offerings: Oracle Linux and Oracle VM; RedHat Enterprise Linux; and SuSE Linux
Hardware and Software Release Levels Supported
Here, at a glance, as the site itself proclaims, readers can find a useful tabulation of the Linux Offerings with which Sun/Oracle's x86-based rack and blade servers and workstations are qualified. These include Oracle Linux and Oracle VM, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and SuSE Linux. This is a dynamic site that promises to update as future offerings become available.

SAM-QFS 5.0 What Works With What
Revision 5.0.1
Another in the series of What Works with What deals with SAM-QFS, an integrated hierarchical storage manager (HSM) and storage area network (SAN) file system. SAM, the announcement explains, is the HSM storage and archive management component; QFS is the SAN-scalable high performance file system component. SAM-QFS also has integrated disk volume management and tape volume management. QFS also has a write once, read many times (WORM) file system capability. QFS can be used independently of SAM when just a file system is needed. SAM requires QFS, however, and cannot be used independently of QFS. This "What Works With What" covers the specifics of what works with SAM-QFS (includes SAM-FS) 5.0 and QFS 5.0. This WWWW encompasses patch -01.

                                                                    Oracle is featuring the network virtualization technology available in Project Crossbow, a new, powerful network stack architecture. Project Crossbow delivers the ability to perform network virtualization with Virtual NICs and virtual switching, as well as the creation of VNICs on physical NICs and the ability to link aggregations for high availability or the use of "etherstubs" to form hardware-independent virtual switches. Further capabilities in Project Crossbow include the ability to tightly integrate with oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle Solaris 10 Zones. Network resource management is efficient; integrated QoS is easy to manage, given the ability to enforce bandwidth limits on VNICs and traffic flows. Project Crossbow is an optimized network stack that reacts to network load levels and enables users to build a "datacenter in a box."
