The Oracle Application Grid specialization provides the foundation for application grid, Next-Generation Application Infrastructure. The application grid approach to middleware infrastructure allows a set of applications to meet peak demand and improve overall performance by sharing resources. It also allows for rapid application deployment and automated dynamic adjustments – enabling greater efficiency, competitiveness, and simplification in your IT environment.

To make application grid computing possible, Oracle brings together key industry-leading technologies: Oracle WebLogic Server 11g for Java EE, Tuxedo for C/C++/COBOL, Coherence in-memory data grid, JRockit Java runtime solutions, and Enterprise Manager for automated management.
