Welcome, my name is <name> and I’m a <descriptive title> at Oracle.Today I’d like to talk with you about our Optimized Solution that can help you deploy an Enterprise Database Cloud to deliver database as a service.
Before we get started, I must share with you that information in this presentation is covered by this guidance.
With Oracle Solaris 10, we raised the bar in terms of the innovation included in the operating system. Oracle Solaris is a trusted platform for enterprise deployments among our customer base for providing a highly available and mission critical foundation that they can rely on. Larry Ellison has often said “If it must work, it runs on Solaris”. With features such as our predictive self healing capability (through the Service Management Facility and Fault Management Architecture) we can continue to run in the event of any software and hardware failures either by restarting services, or isolating hardware components until they can be replaced some time later. ZFS, the next generation file system, provides us tremendous scale and data integrity when managing the high volumes of data in today’s computing industry. Built in data services like snapshot and cloning, encryption, RAID and others mean that customers no longer need to purchase additional expensive software to secure their data. With Oracle Solaris Cluster, customers could benefit from the unique integration with the fastest levels of fail over for application clustering. Through technologies like Oracle Solaris auditing and Role Based Authentication Control, customers could ensure they met compliance requirements while having unprecedented observability of live production systems through the DTrace dynamic tracing framework in a safe way.Oracle Solaris 11 brings all of the attributes of a mission critical enterprise operating system together but with a focus on also being an agile and flexible environment for cloud computing at a large scale. With built-in server, storage and network virtualization, no other operating system provides the complete virtualized solution to deal with the demands of cloud computing in a scalable way. We’ve done a lot of work to ensure we can provision the operating system quickly and consistency, and manage it for the complete lifecycle in a fail safe environment. One of the technology foundations of this approach is Oracle Solaris Zones, which provide OS virtualization at extremely low overhead – the perfect vehicle in deploying applications within a multi-tenant cloud environment.
In this section, we’ll take a more detailed look at the features and benefits of the solution.
