Exalogic 2.0 With virtualizaton support officially anouncedPublished on: Author: Jos Nijhoff Category: Oracle
Today, there was an official Oracle webcast event on Exalogic called “Introducing Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software 2.0: The Logical Choice for Running Business Applications”, where “Exalogic 2.0” with virtualizaton support officially anounced.
Actually the webcast is still in progress at the moment, and Wim Coekaarts (Senior VP for Oracle Linux and VM) is now speaking.
What has been announced is Oracle Exalogic version 126.96.36.199.0, where the Exalogic compute nodes run a modified Oracle VM 3.0.3, and it is fully managed by Exalogic Control. All network, storage and compute resource provisioning and setup is done through this console. Exalogic Control is a special management and provisioning center built on Ops Center 12c and VM Manager 3.0.3. This brings it from Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) more up to the Platform as a Service (PaaS) and makes it much more of an appliance. Until now we were at version 188.8.131.52.x. (x=0,1,2)
With this new version, customers now have the choice to run either native Linux or use virtualization for more finegrained partitioning. It is also clear that Oracle has chosen for performance over flexibility.
More posts on this subject very soon, as I was priviliged to preview this version beforehand a month back in the UK, and now I can talk and write about it!
