Oracle Exa* Cloud – Is it Enterprise Architecture in a Box?

 See full size image

Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is the world’s first and only integrated cloud machine—hardware and software engineered together to provide a "cloud in a box". Exalogic is designed to revolutionize data center consolidation, enabling enterprises to bring together tens, hundreds, or even thousands of disparate, mission-critical, performance-sensitive workloads with maximum reliability, availability, and security. Oracle Exalogic’s unique high-bandwidth, low-latency interconnect fabric means that complex, distributed applications can run with a responsiveness simply not achievable with typical servers used in data centers today.

The answer is – of course not.  There is a whole lot more to EA than any infrastructure could provide an answer for.  However, pairing ExaLogic and ExaData together go a long way towards fulfilling some of the basic tenants of Enterprise Architecture.

  • Reduce total IT costs (development –> production)
  • Consolidate databases and applications
  • Exponentially simplify the IT landscape
  • Increase customer (internal and external) satisfaction through higher performance and higher availability
  • Decrease OPEX through simplified and unified management
