Before we get started, I must share with you that information in this presentation is covered by this guidance.
Slide Transition: First, Oracle is simplifying I.T. by engineering hardware and software to work together, upending the longstanding industry practice of cobbling together different components.Oracle's strategy is based on these 4 elements:Best in class: We're innovating at every layer of the stack, and delivering best in class products – in servers, storage, Operating Systems, virtualization, enterprisemanagement, and in in databases, middleware and applications. We work in heterogeneous environments.Vertically integrate for extreme differentiation: We vertically integrate those pieces where we own the IP. Take those very same piece-part capabilities that I described and bring them together into vertically integrated systems for extreme improvement in performance and TCO for our customers.we do it as part of our R&D, not part of your IT budget. with things like integrated systems and engineered systems, where we bring the hardware and software and we engineer them together, is we actually engineer out services. We're in the services business in that we do it as a pre-provisioned product and a solution.Industry capabilities: solve our customers' problems that are unique by industry.Deployment choice: deliver with whatever architecture is best suited for the customer (ability to deliver all the capabilities I just described any way the customer wants to get them, through whatever delivery architectures are appropriate for them.
I mentioned how Oracle engineers the entire stack to work together, and that reduces complexity, drives better performance and better savings. If you look at what the alternative is, lets say you get the database from Oracle, but you run it on RedHat, using VMware for virtualization on HP gear running WebSphere. You could be using any number of different storage and networking vendors, might even have a few Windows Servers in the mix. Those disparate products were all designed and engineered by different teams around the world and it’s simply not possible for all of components to be designed and tested to work together with best practices that will yield anywhere near the same results. There is simply no single place where you can go to find out what to order with what, what works best with what, and then how get the most out of a particular set of technologies. So this means not only does the customer have to deal with all these different vendors and purchase orders, they also have to figure out how to put it together. That’s time and money that could be spend on either new solutions, or in transforming I.T.
So now we’re in a new era where a single integrated system delivers on all the needs of business application users.With Oracle Exalogic & Exadata.
Many of our customers have realized that their differentiation is in their unique business logic and business processes, not their data center build up.Complexity in the data center has become an inhibitor to fast time to market, which is viewed as a key source of competitive advantage.The bottom line is that enterprises can no longer afford to do custom engineeringYou need a solution that is built from the ground up that includes servers, storage, networking, and software that you can run your business on. And ongoing maintenance and management of your environment, including adding new applications is much easier
Industry analysts agree that the integrated systems trend is really catching on.According to Gartner… (read from slide)
This is clearly a big vision. What were our design goals?We set out to deliver on 4 key goals… (see slide)

Thanks MohamadToday I’m really excited to announce EECS 2.0We think it’s simply the logical choice for running business applications
For illustrative purposes, this diagram shows InfiniBand connectivity on the vertical axis and Ethernet connectivity on the horizontal axis.The compute nodes and the storage device within Exalogic are provisioned with redundant InfiniBand connections. These devices have access to the datacenter “external” network via the Ethernet ports on the InfiniBand Gateways.Ethernet connectivity to the compute servers and cloud storage is provided through the InfiniBand fabric. Virtual Ethernet NICs are instantiated within the host stack and Ethernet frames are encapsulated within InfiniBand packets which are forwarded to the gateway, which has physical Ethernet ports.Note that there is an independent 1 GbE network for device management that connects to all components in Exalogic
Interesting:Good balance of ram to compute.96 GB RAM per system to keepUsing 12 of 18 DIMM slots – allows DIMMs to run at full clock speed.One empty PCIe slot.HCA = networking card.HBA =OS ISOs are pre-installed on SAS
Exadata does not use this product.Brand new product with Exalogic – not yet available outside of Exalogic.Every exalogic device is connected to 2 switchesBridged not switched = 8 10Ge NIC ports. Key to DC integration. There is not need to certify this as a switch.Can be mapped to multiple hosts.We are not yet certifying partitioning over IB. All the capabilities are supported by the switch. We are coming up with best practices and EDG around this.Active-Passive bonding (bonding provides an abstraction layer for multiple NICs).
This is a spine switch (connects leaf switches together).We have leaf switches for each connected device.
Assume ‘App1’ and ‘App2’ are separate clusters within the same SOA domain (say ‘SOA_PROD’)Maximizes Availability by utilizing all compute nodesIf Node8 fails, each cluster is still at 85%+ capacityWorks well with automatic whole server migration (requires at least 3 compute nodes in a cluster)Failed managed servers on Node8 can be restarted automatically on remaining nodes
Isolating Applications within set of compute nodes (mutually exclusive)If one node goes down for maintenance or unexpectedly, only 50% capacityTYPICAL SCENARIO IS HYBRID:E.g. DEV, TEST using horizontal slicing PROD is vertically sliced across all compute nodes.
Each ES includes a slightly different combination of the tech stack.Click Builds to ExalyticsThe h/w components and s/w are standard, as shipped for traditional Oracle systems. Db is the same, WLS is the same, EBS is the same...Click build for text box on lThese are all managed with the EM suite, from apps to disk.All ES have built in, low level monitoring and management tools – these have been integrated into EM 12cEM 12c has been enhanced to be ES aware so the primary management toolset for ES is EM 12c, just as it is for traditional Oracle systems. Core functionality is free.It should be deployed as a single central application whose purpose is to manage the other Oracle systems in all environments.Click build for text box on r.EM 12c suite includes integrated tools for many purposes covering all stages of the lifecycle, physical and virtualised environments, can be linked to your other systems management and helpdesk tools and is seamlessly integrated with MOS. EM 12c is also the base on which Oracle Cloud computing capabilities are build. With EM 12c your ES can become the platform for Db, FMW or Applications AAS, with self service provisioning, elastic resource management and automated metering and charging Simpler architecture.
