Oracle Web Tier

Oracle Web Tier includes components that interact with end users at the outermost tier of application grid infrastructure, typically through HTTP requests and responses. Oracle Web Tier hosts Web pages (static and dynamic), provides security and high performance along with built-in clustering, load balancing, and failover features.

New Oracle WebLogic Server 12c, the #1 application server across conventional and cloud environments, is now fully certified for the Java EE 6 platform specification and has improved integration with Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC). Oracle Traffic Director delivers a three- to four-times performance boost to WebLogic applications, and Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder enables simplified configuration, deployment, and lifecycle management. Oracle WebLogic Server 12c will be available here for download shortly.

BENEFITS

  • Oracle iPlanet Web Server— The former Sun Java System Web Server is the leading Web server in the world's largest companies, delivering a single, secure infrastructure for all Web technologies and applications.
  • Oracle iPlanet Web Proxy Server— This technology solves the problems of network congestion and slow response time and provides control over network resources without burdening end users or network administrators.
  • Oracle Web Cache— A content-aware server accelerator, or reverse proxy, for the web tier that improves the performance, scalability, and availability of Web sites running on any web server or application server, such as Oracle HTTP Server and Oracle WebLogic Server. Oracle Web Cache can serve large numbers of client requests, offloading this process from the application server.
  • Oracle HTTP Server— An Apache based web server that provides a HTTP listener for Oracle WebLogic Server and the framework for hosting static pages, dynamic pages, and applications over the web.
