Get Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center: Complete Systems Control at No Additional Cost

Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, the centralized management console for comprehensive systems management, is now available at no additional cost for enterprises that implement the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 platform with system support services.

Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center can manage the entire hardware and virtualization environment by enabling IT administrators to perform proactive monitoring and detailed configuration analysis.

Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 is the first general purpose engineered system that combines the computing power of the new SPARC T4 processor, the performance and scalability of Oracle Solaris 11, the optimized database performance of Oracle Exadata storage, and the accelerated middleware processing of Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud. It delivers high performance, availability, scalability, and security across a wide range of enterprise applications, including database and middleware, and Oracle and custom applications.

With Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center, Oracle has delivered a comprehensive management solution to address the most stringent requirements for proactive management of the Oracle SPARC SuperCluster environment, including a rich platform for IT management processes that helps foster a more efficient data center environment. Important features include unified tools for managing enterprisewide server hardware, operating systems, virtual-machine hypervisors, storage devices, and network fabrics. Centralized management also allows IT administrators to perform end-to-end provisioning, comprehensive fault management, and compliance reporting.

Clear ROI
“Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center improves the productivity and speed with which you can deploy new services on Oracle systems,” says Steve Wilson, Oracle vice president of systems management. “We have designed Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center to help customers maximize the return on their Oracle SPARC SuperCluster investment through unparalleled automation and self-management capabilities.”

An analysis of Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center based on interviews with senior executives at Fortune 500 companies determined that when enterprises implement the solution using established best practices, it delivers an ROI of 139 percent over three years. These returns are based in part on the technology’s ability to significantly increase the number of systems that can be managed by existing staff, reduce deployment times for new systems from hours to minutes, and cut time for patching by an average of 50 percent.

In addition, being available at no additional cost with Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4 system support saves enterprises tens of thousands of dollars compared to the price of competing enterprise management solutions, says Anand Akela, Oracle senior principle product director.
