Oracle Fine-Tunes Its Cloud Computing Strategy

The software giant unveils a new private cloud in a box

Reinforcing its intention to compete with the likes of IBM, HP and Cisco in the increasingly crowded integrated hardware and software cloud space, Oracle has come out with its own version of the same called Exalogic Elastic Cloud. It has been designed to run Java and non-Java applications in virtualized computing environments behind a company's firewall. Modeled after its Exadata Database Machine, another hardware-software combo from Oracle that is geared for database storage performance, this latest cloud stack is intended as a middleware machine combining Intel multi-core processors, an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with the Oracle WebLogic middleware server and other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products, and provides a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux.

Oracle has also announced that a good chunk of Oracle enterprise software like E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, Siebel CRM, Fusion Middleware, its flagship database and Linux distribution can be deployed on Amazon EC2 using Oracle VM virtualization.
