News Facts

Oracle today announced the availability of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2, a complete cloud application infrastructure for consolidating the widest possible range of Java and non-Java application types and workloads and meeting the most demanding service-level requirements.
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2 is an engineered hardware and software system combining cutting-edge 64-bit x86 processors, an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage with the market-leading Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud can support thousands of Java and non-Java applications with differing security, reliability and performance requirements – making it an ideal platform for enterprise-wide data center consolidation and an ideal platform for applications of all types, from small-scale departmental applications to the largest and most demanding ERP and mainframe applications.
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud offers unmatched performance and reliability for Java applications and accelerates the performance of the entire Oracle Fusion Middleware product portfolio based on Oracle WebLogic Server. The machine is also optimized for integration with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and the Oracle Exadata Database Machine.
Only Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud provides a tuned combination of hardware and software that allows different components of a Java application to interact with essentially zero-copy I/O, enabling as much as a 12x improvement in handling workloads such as Web requests.

    Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud’s I/O fabric technology enables a high level of fault tolerance with near-instant failover and 100% isolation of applications, allowing enterprises to consolidate numerous mission-critical applications on a single system with extremely low risk.

    Oracle also recently announced a SPARC Solaris-based Exalogic Elastic Cloud system, broadening customer choice for data center consolidation and extreme Java performance.
