Oracle on Tuesday said its Virtual Compute Appliance enables repeatable software-defined infrastructure deployment for any x86 application and workload.
The main advantage is that enterprise customers can go from power on to production in about an hour and deploy ready-to-run virtual machines in a few minutes.
Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance accelerates time-to-application use by enabling rapid, repeatable, full-stack virtual infrastructure deployment.
The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance comes fully assembled and ready to run production workloads with minimal, software-defined configuration, saving customers hundreds of hours in labor and lowering the risk of physical and software configuration errors.
The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is fault tolerant out of the box, with no single point of failure. Application virtual machines can automatically restart on hardware or software failure.
Able to run Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, other Linux distributions and Microsoft Windows side by side, the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is a converged infrastructure platform for a broad mix of applications and operating systems.
Oracle is uniquely capable of delivering a complete full stack, integrated solution with hardware and software engineered together, with a single point of contact for support.
“The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is unique in accelerating not only virtual infrastructure deployment, but also in speeding deployment of the complete application stacks through Oracle VM Templates,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle.
