Oracle introduces Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite for mission-critical environments

28 Sep 2012 Redwood Shores - Oracle has launched the Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite. Designed, tuned, tested and fully documented, the Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite is based on Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, Oracle Solaris and Oracle VM Server for SPARC, and is ideal for customers looking to modernize their mission-critical Oracle E-Business Suite environments, lower operating expenses and maximize user productivity.

The Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite can deliver significant cost savings versus both new and existing hardware infrastructure.

Up to 56 percent lower acquisition cost versus new IBM POWER7 and HP Superdome2-based configurations. Up to 40 percent lower five-year TCO when consolidating existing IBM and HP infrastructure, while reducing rackspace footprint up to 73 percent.

The new solution helps customers meet service level agreements (SLAs). A half-rack SPARC SuperCluster easily supports hourly throughput of approximately 200,000 Oracle Financials transactions with 2,000 concurrent users in the application tier domain with 80 percent additional capacity available for higher loads or further consolidation.

The new solution also helps expedite Oracle E-Business Suite deployments by up to 5x using its tested, documented sizing guides and High Availability best practices.

The Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite will be demonstrated at Oracle Open World, September 30 - October 4, in DEMOgrounds pod S-101, demo #3248. It was also discussed in more detail in "Accelerate Oracle E-Business Suite Deployment with SPARC SuperCluster" on October 1.

Customers can further enhance their Oracle E-Business Suite and other application environments using the Oracle Optimized Solution for Backup and Recovery, which provides end-to-end data protection and faster backup and recovery via the SPARC SuperCluster's native high performance networking. It also provides virtually unlimited scalability and no-single points of failure with a flexible multi-tier architecture to meet SLAs as data capacity grows.

Additionally, using Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c customers can manage and monitor their infrastructure with a single tool, streamlining management and simplifying operations.

Oracle Advanced Customer Support Services and Oracle Premier Support Services can also help shorten time to value, providing mission critical support for Oracle E-Business Suite upgrade and consolidation projects.

"The Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite delivers high volume batch and OLTP performance with mission critical availability and disaster recovery for Oracle E-Business Suite environments, while reducing risk and enabling significant savings in TCO", stated Ganesh Ramamurthy, vice president of engineering, Oracle. "Built on the SPARC SuperCluster, our newest solution takes advantage of Oracle hardware and software engineered together to deliver the high performance and availability needed for business-critical applications."

"The major benefits of the Oracle Optimized Solution for Oracle E-Business Suite to us are better flexibility, reduced costs and also reduced implementation timeline for the project", stated Hamid Ben Daas, Deputy Head of IT Operations, Accor. "It was then much easier to provide disaster recovery for our solution and our application."
