Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is an exciting product from Oracle.  Cornerstone Data Systems offers consulting and services for the Virtual Compute Appliance.  This product enables efficient infrastructure deployment for any x86 application and workload.   Your company can go from power on to production in only one hour and deploy virtual machines in moments. Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is a new engineered system with the unique ability to engineer hardware and software together in one easy to manage solution.  Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance accelerates time-to-application use by enabling rapid, repeatable, full-stack virtual infrastructure deployment, and it is engineered for application virtualization.

The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance integrates into existing networking and storage environments, making it easy to deploy applications that access existing data.  Adding an additional compute node to an Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance is simple.  All you have to do is:

  • Slide the new node into a rack
  • Connect four pre-wired cables
  • Power up the unit

The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance has a fault tolerant architecture, with no single point of failure. Your application’s virtual machine can automatically restart in the event of a hardware or software failure.  The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance can connect to existing Ethernet and Fibre Channel networks through pooled interconnect modules that are transparently available to every virtual machine built around InfiniBand fabric.

The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance also includes Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder.   Your company can rapidly deploy entire application stacks, including Oracle Linux, Oracle Solaris, database, middleware and business applications with built-in support for pre-tested, pre-configured Oracle VM Templates.

The Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance also supports other Oracle Trusted Partitions.  This gives your company flexibility, and also incorporates the best-of-breed Oracle technologies including servers based on Intel Xeon processors, Oracle VM, Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, Oracle Virtual Networking fabric interconnects, and Oracle SDN software.

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 at Oracle. “Only Oracle delivers this deeper integration between hardware, virtualization and applications so our customers can save weeks of effort and lower their cost when deploying virtual infrastructure and applications.”  Cornerstone Data Systems presents a wonderful product available for you, now – the Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance.
