Infotech Lead America: Oracle announced new Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Oracle VM Templates for several Oracle Applications.
Oracle Exalogic Oracle VM Templates are available for the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1.3, Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.1, Oracle’s PeopleSoft PeopleTools 8.52 and Oracle’s Siebel CRM 126.96.36.199 and 8.2.2. These are the first Oracle VM templates specifically built for Oracle Exalogic, adding to the Oracle VM Templates already available for dozens of Oracle products.
Each Oracle Application has been tested, validated, benchmarked and optimized on Oracle Exalogic by the Oracle Applications engineering teams for extreme performance. Oracle Exalogic provides a secure, reliable, open standards-based platform for consolidating Oracle, Java and third-party business applications.
Oracle VM Templates are virtual machine images based on Oracle’s expertise and best practices that contain pre-built, pre-installed, pre-configured and ready-to-run software applications with no installation required. They can be downloaded from Oracle E-Delivery and deployed on Oracle Exalogic.
Oracle Exalogic X3-2, the latest product generation, delivers 3.5x better application performance, 4.4x faster web application requests per second and a 4.6x improvement in messages per second compared to the previous generation, all for the same price.
Hasan Rizvi, executive vice president, Oracle, said: “Oracle Exalogic Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Applications take advantage of Oracle’s integrated hardware and software stack to deliver the predictable, low-risk deployment process that our customers need for their multi-tier, business-critical
Oracle Exalogic and Oracle VM Templates for Oracle Applications enable PeopleSoft customers to easily consolidate multiple application pillars onto a shared, centrally managed Oracle Exalogic private cloud.
The templates provide superfast software-based application scalability during peak usage times by allowing customers to create additional server instances within minutes and dramatically reduce the cost of patching by simply swapping server virtual machines with new ones delivered by Oracle.
“This in turn enables PeopleSoft customers to implement the latest application innovations while controlling costs, maximizing efficiency and achieving a rapid return on their IT investments,” said Paco Aubrejuan, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle’s PeopleSoft Applications.
