Oracle Announces Groundbreaking Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud 2.0

Oracle’s recent launch of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud 2.0 adds a potent choice for companies in search of a system built to maximize the benefits of their business applications. 

Already the fastest-growing engineered system on the market, Oracle Exalogic delivers “far more than blazing performance,” says Yoav Eilat, director of product marketing, Oracle. “The groundbreaking innovations in Oracle Exalogic translate directly to business success, helping companies seize market opportunities, improve customer satisfaction, lower business risk, and reduce enterprise IT complexity.”

For example, every hardware and software layer in Oracle Exalogic has been extensively tuned and certified to achieve fast application performance and tight security, using Exabus high-speed connectivity and complete application isolation based on InfiniBand partitioning.

“In the first release of Oracle Exalogic, performance was about two to three times faster than a regular system,” says Eilat. “Now, Release 2.0 delivers performance close to 10 times faster than a conventional system.” The result? Companies can close business faster and improve the customer experience.

“Moreover, application deployments on Oracle Exalogic are really simple thanks to virtual assemblies—ready-to-run templates you can get from Oracle or build yourself,” says Eilat. Now customers can respond to changing market needs by launching a new application at the click of a button.

Mission-critical virtualization based on Oracle VM technology allows companies to consolidate business-critical applications onto a fully virtualized environment that runs at near-native performance, while built-in application-to-disk management with Oracle Enterprise Manager and the built-in Oracle Traffic Director application delivery controller further reduce IT cost and complexity. “It’s all about simplification,” says Eilat. “The entire operational side of your applications platform is now consolidated in one place, built right into the platform.”

Middleware customers can expect similar gains with Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud 2.0. This release accelerates performance and delivers unparalleled return on investment for the Oracle Fusion Middleware product portfolio, including the market-leading Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Coherence, Oracle SOA Suite, and Oracle Tuxedo products.
