Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure By @FerhatSF | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Enterprise IT organizations have been widely adopting virtualization and cloud computing

Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure: Fujitsu M10 Servers and Oracle Solaris 11.2

Enterprise IT organizations have been widely adopting virtualization and cloud computing to deliver higher levels of services more effectively in the face of ever-increasing demands for capacity, performance, and scalability. IT organizations are also starting to command a very prominent role in the enterprise to support and drive innovation in the creation of new businesses while maintaining high levels of service for existing mission-critical applications. A crucial question immediately arises: is it possible to support a wide range of enterprise workloads on a single infrastructure? This is now more feasible than ever before, with the winning combination of the Oracle Solaris 11.2 operating system and Fujitsu M10 servers.

Oracle introduced Oracle Solaris 11 as the First Cloud OS with its advanced virtualization, unified archives, and software defined networking capabilities. The new Oracle Solaris 11.2 release increases the built-in cloud infrastructure capabilities tremendously through the incorporation of a full cloud software stack, OpenStack.

OpenStack is the leading open source, cloud computing platform stack, and is managed by the OpenStack Foundation, with members representing more than 850 organizations. OpenStack provides an Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud solution through a set of interrelated services to create and manage pools of processing, storage, and networking resources across the enterprise datacenter. Marrying cloud computing capabilities with the industry’s leading enterprise operating system makes a powerful combination, and allows for greater levels of datacenter workload consolidation and management simplification.

You can watch a quick overview of the Oracle Solaris 11.2 cloud capabilities here:

And you can find greater detail on the OpenStack implementation within Oracle Solaris here:

Oracle Solaris 11.2 also features Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones that enable efficient application consolidation with very low overhead. This capability provides organizations with extremely convenient means to migrate and consolidate their legacy applications running on earlier versions of Oracle Solaris onto a modern server infrastructure. Deployed and managed in their own zones, such mission-critical legacy applications can continue to run on the same operating system as before, but benefit from Fujitsu M10 servers’ significant cost and performance advantages.

Fujitsu M10 servers are designed to meet the processing demands of rapidly growing mountains of data in the Big Data and Cloud Computing era. Fujitsu M10 servers offer dynamic growth and capacity-on-demand features with core-level CPU Activation and a modular system architecture to easily and economically match the performance and capacity that business applications need.

Dynamics Scaling

Fujitsu M10 servers and Oracle Solaris 11.2 provide a flexible and scalable cloud infrastructure that delivers high performance and reliability.  The combination of Fujitsu M10 servers and Oracle Solaris 11.2 – with OpenStack capabilities and the Oracle Solaris Kernel Zones feature – enables IT organizations to maximize their return on investment and eliminate the challenges of sprawling silos and compartmentalization across the data center. This single system solution allows legacy applications, mission-critical enterprise applications, and next generation cloud apps to come together on one enterprise cloud infrastructure.

Deep integration of Fujitsu M10 and Oracle Solaris with Oracle Database and Oracle applications further enables organizations to deliver the most reliable, high-performance, and secure services to their respective communities.

Organizations in the education, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing and utility industries demand an IT infrastructure that delivers reliability, capacity, performance, security and flexible operations. Increasingly IT organizations in these industries are deploying on-premise cloud services in support of their user communities. Fujitsu M10 together with Oracle Solaris 11.2 presents a great enterprise cloud opportunity for all!
