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.

Java Renaissance at Oracle
IBM to Share OpenJDK Project Leadership
Heartened by the clear progress toward releases of Java SE 7 (July 2011) and Java SE 8 (late 2012), Mark Reinhold, now chief architect of Oracle's Java platform group and formerly a principal engineer at Sun, speaking at EclipseCon, expressed enthusiasm for the pace at which the releases are making their respective way through the Java Community Process. Reinhold also noted IBM's signing on to the OpenJDK Project, anticipating new energy in that quarter as a result. In his report on Reinhold's appearance The Register writer Gavin Clarke quoted IBM's Java chief technology officer John Duimovich, who confirmed IBM's intention to make significant contributions to OpenJDK, even to the extent of sharing the leadership with Oracle. "Oracle has 20,000 Java developers working for the company, everything except the core database is written in Java," Reinhold told the audience. "If that were to decline... that would be a significant re-investment," he continued. He said further that he had great expectations for the strategy of modularity by way of providing a solution to enabling Java to work better with different tools and languages on multiple platforms.

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.

Traffixsystems' Diameter Router and Load Balancer Scales on Solaris SPARC T3
Meets Signaling Demands of Telco Networks Moving to LTE and 4G Networks
Diameter, developed by traffixsystems and a successor to the company's RADIUS product, has been paired with SPARC Enterprise T-Series technology, Oracle Solaris 10 Zones and Oracle Solaris Cluster to enable telco network operators moving to LTE to accommodate the increase in signaling anticipated to accompany the growth in both LTE and 4G networks. Oracle's ISV Engineering staff benchmarked the Traffix Diameter Router and Load Balancer on a SPARC T5220 under a session-based online-charging scenario in which each client sent the following DCCA application commands: Initiate; 10 Updates; Terminate. The typical request size for this benchmarking exercise was 1,000 bytes and response size was 200 bytes. Throughout the testing, the Traffix software proved easily able to linearly scale across the 64 threads available on the 8-core UltraSPARC T2+ processor, to process Diameter transactions in parallel and to deliver extremely high overall throughput.
IQNavigator Inc. Invests in Oracle Exadata Database Machine
Looks to Exadata for Improvements in Performance, Scalability
IQNavigator is a leading provider of services procurement and extended workforce solutions that has invested in Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 to power its core online transaction processing (OLTP) and real-time reporting services. The company's expectations are that Oracle Exadata Database Machine will improve system throughput at the database and storage tiers; Increase the performance of complex queries by an average of 10x without tuning; support its real-time reporting capabilities directly from its transactional system; and, scale its system horizontally over time as required.The IQNavigator application incorporates procurement, financial and human resources (HR) capabilities to help clients manage and control costs to achieve savings in the bid process as well as meet a myriad of compliance and visibility requirements. The application also features 24/7 real-time reporting with clients running thousands of on-demand and scheduled reports daily. “As the IQNavigator service and data products continue to grow exponentially, the performance delivered by Oracle Exadata Database Machine X2-2 is key to supporting the always-on, real-time reporting environment that clients rely on around the world,” said John F. Martin, chief operating officer, IQNavigator Inc.

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.

The demo reveals that user investments in Solaris are protected. Further, it shows that the branded zone is ideal for those Solaris 10 applications that cannot be run in a Solaris 11 environment.

                                                                    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."
