Sun Updates Java Availability Suite (JAS), Adds Grid Cluster for Oracle Customers

New JAS Has Cluster Advanced Edition

Sun Microsystems has updated its Java Availability Suite (JAS) with the addition of the new Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle Real Application Cluster. The company will now provide enterprises with what it terms "additional high availability and performance capabilities for customers using Oracle Real Application Clusters" on the Solaris 10 Operating System for $50 per year per employee.

Sun is thus offering end-to-end software in this space comprised of Sun StorEdge QFS software, Sun Cluster RAC agent and Solaris Volume Manager software, to run a clustered Oracle Database 10g, the first database designed for grid computing, running on the Solaris 10 OS.

“Oracle's tight integration with Sun ensures customers a secure and dependable Oracle environment on the Solaris 10 Operating System,” said Prem Kumar (pictured above), vice president, Server Technologies at Oracle. “We have worked to certify the Sun Cluster for Oracle Database 10g and Oracle Real Application Clusters, so that our joint customers can feel assured of the integrity and high availability delivered by Oracle Real Application Clusters on Solaris 10.”

Financial, government, telecommunication and healthcare organizations are among the industries already benefiting from Sun's grid technologies, according to the companies. Sun provides availability, system and services management for the grid environment, with the Sun N1 management software portfolio, which includes Sun Cluster software and Sun Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle Real Application Clusters. Datacenters running Oracle Real Application Clusters on Solaris 10 deployments around the world can now gain additional high availability and better resource utilization with the Sun Cluster Advanced Edition for Oracle Real Application Clusters.

A key feature is the shared file system with Sun StorEdge QFS software, helping to eliminate administrative overhead and providing customers with maximum data management and throughput for the most data-intensive applications. Solaris Volume Manager software is another critical feature, offering partitioning and automatic device relocation for data mirroring and high availability.  “Today's announcement builds on more than a decade of joint technology development between Sun and Oracle on clustered server environments,” said Tom Goguen (pictured), Vice President of System Software at Sun Microsystems. “With the Sun Java Availability Suite, Sun is delivering a comprehensive cluster platform for Oracle grid implementations at a great price, reaffirming our position that Solaris 10 is the best operating system on the planet for database applications.”
