Oracle announces latest release of Oracle Database Appliance software

6 Nov 2014 Redwood Shores - Oracle has made available the latest Appliance Manager software for Oracle Database Appliance. Delivering a highly available database platform, Oracle Database Appliance is an engineered system comprising hardware and software designed to simplify the deployment, maintenance, and support of database solutions, helping to save customers time and money. It also enables customers to create a solution-in-a-box, facilitating the efficient allocation of resources to databases and applications running on the same physical server.

The Appliance Manager software provides support for rapid snapshots of both databases and virtual machines (VMs), making it possible for customers to create and provision full-stack development and test environments in minutes, regardless of the size of the database or VMs. This improves DBA, developer, and test productivity, resulting in higher quality applications and faster time to market. Appliance Manager also uses disk space efficiently by implementing snapshots using copy-on-write technology, where only the changes consume storage space.

The latest release adds support for storing database files in Oracle Automatic Storage Management Cluster File System, which is the underlying technology that delivers rapid and space-efficient snapshots.

Additionally, Oracle Database Appliance now provides support for the latest version of Oracle Database 12c, including the Oracle Database In-Memory option, providing customers with unmatched performance and helping them to become real-time enterprises.

Also available is an enhanced deployment template for Oracle WebLogic Server that supports multi-domain and multi-cluster deployment options. Utilizing the new snapshot capability reduces deployment time by as much as 15 minutes.

"With this update of Oracle Database Appliance software, customers can now reap the benefits of Oracle Database 12c, the latest release of the world's most popular database right out of the box. With added support for rapid and space-efficient snapshots for creating test and development environments, organisations can further capitalize on the simplicity of Oracle engineered systems with speed and efficiency", stated Sohan DeMel, vice president, product strategy and business development, Oracle.

"Pre-installing IFS Applications on the latest Oracle Database Appliance can help our customers save set-up time and money so they can realize the benefits of IFS Applications sooner", stated David Eager, Vice President, Global Alliances at IFS. "Having the reassurance that the IFS-in-a-Box offer has been optimally configured makes this a compelling solution for companies wanting to quickly scale up capacity for IFS Applications."
