FUJITSU has announced the new version of FlexFrame for Oracle, which integrates Oracle VM to provide high availability across both physical and virtual servers.
The software is available in Africa, the Middle East, Europe and America.
The company said the new FlexFrame for Oracle extends the solution’s availability to customers who need to start small and grow. Greater flexibility is built in as FlexFrame for Oracle is designed to scale
dynamically with customers’ Oracle installations, always providing the maximum levels of high availability. Also new in FlexFrame for Oracle are value-add features such as application awareness and priority management, Fujitsu said.
Richard Sutherland, Portfolio Manager – Dynamic Infrastructures at Fujitsu Technology Solutions says: “The introduction of the new FlexFrame for Oracle release is the result of more than 15 years of collaboration between Fujitsu and Oracle. This solution consolidates Oracle environments
to provide one infrastructure for all Oracle services. Now by integrating with Oracle VM, we can ensure high availability for both real and virtual servers.”
Monica Kumar, Senior Director, Linux, Virtualization and Open Source Product Marketing from Oracle says: “With the ability to support virtual environments, Fujitsu’s unique FlexFrame for Oracle technology allows businesses to start small and add new services gradually as they grow. We
are excited to partner with Fujitsu to bring these benefits to our customers.”
Officials said FlexFrame for Oracle is an efficient solution providing a pre-integrated IT infrastructure that dynamically assigns server resources to Oracle services based on Oracle database, Oracle application servers or any other Oracle application. All Oracle software, plus the operating
system, reside on a central storage system and can be started on any server in the FlexFrame pool within minutes.
FlexFrame for Oracle drastically reduces installation and maintenance efforts and automatically manages quality of service, they said.
Meanwhile, later in 2009, Fujitsu said it will introduce further enhancements to FlexFrame for Oracle, which will provide native support for the newest server and storage technologies. In addition, Virtual IO Manager (VIOM) allows customers to manage multiple storage systems in LAN
and SAN environments and reduces complexity by introducing virtualized physical network addresses, which makes it easier to reallocate resources between virtual machines.
