In this paper, Charlie Boyle, senior director of product marketing for Oracle Solaris, and Monica Kumar, senior director of product marketing for Linux, Virtualization, and MySQL at Oracle, talk about how Oracle’s operating systems take advantage of the Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family to deliver secure, available, and agile cloud solutions.
Oracle offers a complete cloud infrastructure s...tack, including hardware, operating systems, virtualization, and cloud management. Oracle’s operating systems—Oracle* Solaris* and Oracle Linux*—are designed to deliver maximum security, performance, and agility. Both also:
• Provide built-in tools and features making them ideal to deploy in a cloud infrastructure
• Integrate with the rest of Oracle’s products, including Oracle Applications, making it easy to deploy applications with an Oracle VM template and manage them with Oracle Enterprise Manager
• Take advantage of the latest Intel Xeon processor E5 family architecture for our server infrastructure to deliver performance and agility in the cloud
• Are included with Oracle’s x86 servers and Oracle Premier Support bundle at no additional cost
Oracle Solaris 11 is the first cloud operating system designed to support enterprise-level cloud workloads, and Linux is increasingly being deployed for cloud-based solutions. A long-standing partnership between Intel and Oracle enables Oracle to get the maximum performance out of its applications by tuning them with the Oracle operating systems and the latest Intel processor.
