The Oracle Exalogic engineered system outperforms competing platforms by a wide margin:
o Eliminates application and middleware deployment risk with one-click automated deployment of complex, multi-tier business applications.
o Up to 10x performance gains for Oracle Applications, Java-based applications and other business applications.
o Up to 6x faster application provisioning to help customers quickly respond to changing market needs.
Built on open, industry standard technologies, Oracle Exalogic:
o Supports virtualisation of mission-critical business applications with near native performance vs. physical servers through Oracle VM integration.
o Provides a high-speed communication (I/O) fabric, Oracle Exabus, which is the foundation of Oracle Exalogic’s extreme performance, reliability and scalability and ties all Oracle Exalogic system components together.
o Delivers true elasticity at the application level through integrated application-to-disk management with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.
o Supports consolidation of multiple applications on the same system as a private cloud, while eliminating security risks through complete application isolation.
o Integrates Oracle Traffic Director, a built-in Application Delivery Controller, to securely manage and route large volumes of application traffic with high performance.
Oracle Exalogic provides customers and partners with an engineered system that accelerates the performance and can protect and maximise return on their existing and future Oracle software investments.
o Exalogic is the logical choice for running Oracle Applications, including the Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle’s Siebel CRM, Oracle’s PeopleSoft, Oracle’s JD Edwards and Oracle’s industry specific business applications. These applications have been optimised, tested, benchmarked and certified on Oracle Exalogic for extreme performance.
o Oracle Exalogic is optimised to run the standards-based Oracle Fusion Middleware product portfolio, including the market-leading Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Coherence, Oracle SOA Suite and Oracle Tuxedo products. Oracle Tuxedo ART 12c is optimised on Oracle Exalogic to help customers reduce IT costs with rapid rehosting of IBM CICS, IMS, and batch applications.
o Oracle Exalogic natively leverages Oracle Exadata Database Machine and integrates with Oracle Database and Oracle Real Application Clusters.
o The new Oracle Platinum Services program is a special support entitlement, including an industry-leading 5-minute fault notification service level agreement, available at no additional cost to Oracle Premier Support customers that are running certified configurations on Oracle engineered systems.
Oracle Exastack Program
340 ISVs are certified on Oracle Exalogic through the Oracle Exastack Program, which enables ISVs and other qualifying members of Oracle Partner Network (OPN) to optimise their applications to run even faster and more reliably on Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
ISVs are seeing dramatic out-of-the-box performance improvement for virtually every standard Oracle Linux or Oracle Solaris application.
