Oracle: New Turnkey Solution For Consolidating Data Center Workloads
Oracle in June unveiled the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, the latest in its series of converged infrastructure solutions, or engineered systems in Oracle-speak.
The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, designed to help customers get Oracle and third-party applications or services up and running with minimal time spent on provisioning and configuration, streamlines application and service deployments via Oracle VM templates for over 100 Oracle software packages.
Compute nodes for the solution include Oracle's Sun Server X4-2 Xeon processor-based systems running Oracle VM Server for x86 for server virtualization. They connect to the Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-ES for centrally storing the management environment, as well as providing data storage for virtual machines.
