Oracle Unveils Exalogic Elastic Cloud

Ainsley Jones

Oracle has tossed its hat into the cloud ring. Yesterday the company entered the fray with the unveiling of a high-performance server with hardware and middleware specifically geared for running public or private cloud systems. The Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud provides cloud infrastructure in one stop and, according to Larry Ellison ,includes "the fastest Java performance, elastic capacity on demand and a completely fault-tolerant system."


According to InformationWeek, Oracle's new system combines 30 six-core servers connected by Infiniband networking and is fully compatible with the Exadata Database Machine. Larry Dignan at ZDNet says Oracle's spin on cloud computing muddies the waters a bit. Dignan says a cloud turning capital expenses into operating expenses, Exalogic looks more like capital spending and questions whether it is truly elastic.
