Oracle Communications Virtualizes Its Products to Support Network Function Virtualization Industry Initiative

Oracle Database News - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 08:00
Press Release Oracle Communications Virtualizes Its Products to Support Network Function Virtualization Industry Initiative

Amsterdam, the Netherlands—Jun 23, 2015

Oracle today announced the release of four products that underscore its commitment to provide communications service providers (CSPs) with a fully virtualized, network function virtualization (NFV)-ready solution portfolio.

Just as the cloud has transformed the IT industry, NFV is transforming the communications industry by enabling CSPs to move beyond the limitations of proprietary hardware to revolutionize service agility and speed to market. However, virtualizing networks is not enough; CSPs must consider how to transform the network to meet customer needs and grow the bottom line, while best leveraging existing assets in the new hybrid network reality.

With new releases of Oracle Communications Session Border Controller, Oracle Communications Converged Application Server, Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper, and Oracle Communications Policy Management, Oracle helps CSPs conquer the layers of complexity inherent in bridging physical and virtual environments as they continue on their journey toward NFV.

NFV-Enabled Oracle Communications Session Border Controller Helps CSPs to Quickly Scale New Services and Improve Network Agility and Responsiveness

The Oracle Communications Session Border Controller helps CSPs provide a complete range of secure and reliable fixed line and mobile services. The latest release delivers the product as a virtual network function (VNF) capable of running on a variety of hardware platforms, accelerating CSP networks toward a higher level of agility, elasticity, and flexibility. This release is the latest step in Oracle’s commitment to virtualize all of its network function offerings.

The new release of Oracle Communications Session Border Controller enables CSPs to:

  • Choose how they deploy the product to best meet their needs—on purpose-built hardware; a virtual machine; commercial, off-the-shelf hardware; or a hybrid configuration—as the design, deployment, and management of their networks evolves
  • Quickly respond to changing traffic volumes by adding capacity when and where it is needed, and freeing network resources when capacity is no longer required
  • Introduce new applications and services more quickly and adapt networks to support those services with minimal risk and cost by automating the building and deployment of session border controllers
Oracle Communications Converged Application Server Accelerates Service Innovation While Improving Resiliency of Core Network Application Servers

Oracle Communications Converged Application Server provides a carrier-grade, standards-based development and deployment platform for next-generation communications applications.  This upgrade—deployable as a VNF—supports the latest Java standards and is built on cloud-ready technologies, enabling CSPs to:

  • Use a modular architecture to build communications services
  • Accelerate service innovation, integration, and deployment by providing a simple and straightforward Java interface—familiar to any Java Platform, Enterprise Edition (Java EE) developer—to minimize the complexity inherent in connecting services to network elements
  • Improve fault resiliency and scalability by building on the Oracle Coherence in-memory data grid technology, which provides fast, highly reliable data storage with shared memory and built-in event processing across application servers
Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper Simplifies API Creation to Reduce Operational Costs and Drive Revenue Growth Through New Applications

Oracle Communications Services Gatekeeper manages the entire application program interface (API) lifecycle. With this solution, CSPs and enterprises can use a simple graphical user interface to generate APIs in minutes, enabling them to accelerate application development, onboard development partners quickly, and monetize assets to drive revenue growth. The solution also helps organizations reduce operational expenses through simplified administration. Supporting Oracle’s VNF mission, the upgrade of this solution is fully virtualized and deployable on commercial, off-the-shelf hardware and engineered systems, or in the cloud.

Oracle Communications Policy Management Supports Network Advancement Through VoLTE, IMS, and Virtualization

The newest version of Oracle Communications Policy Management is a key component in the deployment of next-generation LTE networks. As network virtualization continues to advance, CSPs require the flexibility, reliability, and depth of feature functionality that enables them to evolve their networks through LTE, Voice over LTE (VoLTE), IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), and virtualization. Oracle Communications Policy Management now takes the next step toward a fully cloud-enabled and virtualized policy management solution, preparing CSPs for NFV and software defined network (SDN)-enabled networks. The solution also:

  • Enables tight integration with charging and billing systems
  • Provides valuable network insights via an integrated policy analytics solution
  • Allows providers to serve all subscribers from a single policy management instance regardless of network access type

These four new product releases are the latest Oracle Communications offerings that will help CSPs on their NFV journey. Previous product releases that contributed to the NFV industry initiative include Oracle Communications Core Session Manager, Oracle Communications Application Orchestrator, Oracle Communications Network Orchestration Solution, and Oracle Communications Evolved Communications Application Server.

“The communications industry is in an era of major transformation and Oracle Communications is perfectly positioned to provide CSPs with a world-class, virtualized network,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “We have worked over the last year to provide a fully virtualized, NFV-ready portfolio to support this evolution. Communications networks are now software-based, and no one understands that better than Oracle.”

“Virtualization is changing the scale and economics of the technology landscape as services such as VoLTE and voice-over Wi-Fi (VoWi-Fi) grow in popularity,” said Diane Myers, research director, VoIP, UC and IMS, Infonetics Research/IHS. “Oracle’s NFV-enabled solutions provide the capabilities needed to successfully virtualize communications service providers’ networks—including flexibility, scalability, automation, and maintainability.”

Oracle experts will be available to discuss network innovation, VoLTE, VoWi-Fi, and more during the LTE World Summit at Oracle booth 55. The event is scheduled for June 23 through 25, 2015, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

Oracle Extends World’s Most Comprehensive Enterprise Cloud Portfolio

Oracle Database News - Mon, 06/22/2015 - 20:30
Press Release Oracle Extends World’s Most Comprehensive Enterprise Cloud Portfolio New platform and infrastructure services enable developers, IT professionals, and business users to drive innovation and accelerate digital transformation

Redwood Shores, Calif.—Jun 22, 2015

Larry Ellison Unveils New Oracle Cloud Platform Services

At a live event today, Oracle Executive Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison announced new additions to the Oracle Cloud Platform, a comprehensive, integrated suite of services that make it easier for developers, IT professionals, business users and analysts to build, extend and integrate cloud applications. With more than 24 new cloud services, the Oracle Cloud Platform extends Oracle’s leadership with the world’s broadest and deepest portfolio of SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. Newly available Oracle Cloud services include, Oracle Database Cloud - Exadata, Oracle Archive Storage Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud, Oracle Integration Cloud, Oracle Mobile Cloud, and Oracle Process Cloud.

The Oracle Cloud Platform helps customers build new applications, extend existing ones, and easily move existing on-premises workloads to the cloud with no application changes. The services are designed to maximize end user experience and productivity; enable developers to manage and analyze data, rapidly develop, test and deploy applications; enable architects to quickly integrate across on-premises and cloud applications; and enable business users to drive rich business insights and enterprise collaboration. With the Oracle Cloud Platform, customers and partners are able to take advantage of the industry-leading Oracle middleware and database software that thousands of global organizations already use to run their own businesses, all delivered via cloud. The extensive level of automation that has been engineered into the Oracle Cloud, results in faster time-to-value, greater innovation, and lower cost for customers.

“Oracle is growing really fast. We sold $426M worth of business in SaaS and PaaS last quarter, a 200 percent increase over the same quarter last year. That’s an industry record, no company has ever sold that much in just one quarter,” said Ellison. “Oracle is the only company on the planet that can deliver a complete, integrated, standards-based suite of services at every layer of the cloud. Those technology advantages enable us to be much more cost-effective than our competitors. Our new Archive Storage service goes head-to-head with Amazon Glacier and it’s one-tenth their price.”

Oracle Cloud Platform is experiencing exponential growth and is already powering some of the world’s most recognizable brands and organizations. Oracle Cloud Platform has more than 1,800 customers with 1,419 added in the last quarter. Australian Finance Group, Avaya, and Calix are a few of the many organizations using currently available Oracle Cloud Platform services, including the Database Cloud, Java Cloud, Documents Cloud, Business Intelligence Cloud, and the Database Backup Service.

Download the PaaS solutions brief

“According to IDC’s CloudView Survey, the top IT benefit of PaaS is having ‘a self-service environment for access to development and deployment tools’—and for business users the top benefit is ‘built-in integration with my SaaS applications,’” according to Robert Mahowald, program vice president, Cloud Software, IDC. “Having a full-service PaaS platform alongside a complete applications portfolio satisfies both needs, and users of the Oracle Cloud Platform benefit from access to the robust application development and deployment, data management, Big Data analytics, integration, and mobile capabilities, satisfying the key IT and LOB needs.”

Oracle Cloud continues to show strong adoption, supporting 70+ million users and more than 33 billion transactions each day. It runs on 54,000 devices and more than 700 petabytes of storage in 19 data centers around the world.

The new Oracle Cloud Platform and Infrastructure services now available:

  • Oracle Database Cloud – Exadata Service brings the full power of the Oracle Exadata database platform to the cloud. With this service, customers can run Oracle databases in the cloud with the same functionality, performance and availability of on-premises Oracle Exadata-based production databases, already in operation at thousands of mission critical sites worldwide. Oracle databases deployed in the cloud as part of this service are 100 percent compatible with those that are deployed on-premises, enabling a smooth migration to the cloud, as well as a seamless transition to a hybrid cloud strategy.
  • Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service provides storage for applications and workloads that require long-term retention at the lowest price in the industry. As a “deep cloud” archive, the Archive Storage Cloud is suited for infrequently accessed large-scale data sets, such as corporate financial records, medical and pharmaceutical archives, cultural preservation content, insurance records and digital film masters. The service, backed by enterprise-grade SLAs, enables organizations to access archived documents and data sets using industry-standard APIs, and integration with Oracle and third-party backup, archival and preservation software. It also provides an additional tier for on-premises Oracle storage systems, including ZS Series, FS Series and Oracle StorageTek tape solutions.
  • Oracle Big Data Cloud Service and Big Data SQL Cloud Service provides a high-performance, secure platform for running diverse workloads on Hadoop and NoSQL databases to help enterprises acquire and organize Big Data. Combined with the new Big Data SQL Cloud, Oracle Big Data Cloud extends Oracle’s industry-leading implementation of SQL to Hadoop and NoSQL, providing users with a comprehensive Big Data Management System in an enterprise cloud.
  • Oracle Integration Cloud Service simplifies integration between the cloud and on-premises Oracle and third-party applications. Innovative new features, such as pre-built integrations and embedded best practice recommendations, provide an entirely new application integration experience. The Integration Cloud provides simple and intuitive application integration that combines business users’ ease-of-use requirements with the proven mission-critical foundation of Oracle SOA Suite.
  • Oracle Mobile Cloud Service simplifies enterprise mobility by removing the complexity in the mobile backend infrastructure. A next-generation Mobile Back-end as a Service (MBaaS), the Mobile Cloud allows developers to rapidly develop and deploy engaging mobile apps integrated with a robust enterprise-grade backend cloud infrastructure. Mobile app integration, mobile APIs and security are abstracted from developers, allowing them to collaborate effortlessly and quickly to develop and deliver mobile apps that run on any device and meet any business need. Additionally, with built-in mobile analytics, business stakeholders can gain insights into mobile app usage and adoption and personalize engagements.
  • Oracle Process Cloud Service enables business users to innovate and deliver process applications independent of IT. With a zero-code, cloud-based process automation platform, the Process Cloud empowers business users to manage the entire lifecycle of business processes and gain actionable insight on process health and SLAs. Business users can now deliver mobile workflows, automate manual processes, and customize SaaS applications.

“As part of modernizing our business, JDSU consolidated its extensive application footprint and moved key applications, like Oracle HCM, Talent Management and EPM, to the cloud,” said Rajeev Sethi, senior director, IT enterprise applications, JDSU. “The Oracle Cloud Platform portfolio, including the Database Cloud, Java Cloud, Integration Cloud and Business Intelligence Cloud services, have been instrumental in this success, They enable us to very easily move workloads to the cloud, extend our SaaS applications, integrate them with other cloud and on-premises systems and provide analytics for rich business insights.”

“By integrating Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service with NetApp AltaVault our customers can streamline their utilization of cold storage and finally take advantage of a long-term archival service at a much lower price point,” said Phil Brotherton, vice president, Cloud Solutions Group, NetApp. “We are extremely excited that our long-standing relationship with Oracle continues to evolve, and together we enable customers to get the most out of the hybrid cloud.”

“Symantec’s goal is to allow customers to leverage the cloud as easily as they manage their on-premises infrastructure,” said Pablo Stern, senior vice president and CTO, Veritas business, at Symantec. “Our NetBackup™ and Enterprise Vault™ customers in particular are looking to leverage the cloud for flexible, cost-effective data storage. By integrating NetBackup and Enterprise Vault with the Oracle Archive Storage Cloud Service, we are providing customers seamless, secure, on-demand access to enterprise-grade cloud storage.”

“Partner Relationship Management (PRM) is critical for Avaya. We have about 20,000 partners worldwide serving our customers and a good portion of our revenue comes through that channel. Our current PRM application has become very complex and inflexible,” said Fari Ebrahimi, senior vice president and Global Chief Information Officer, Avaya. “With the goal to leverage our engagement solutions while we reduce cost, complexity and risk, we looked at a number of different offerings and eventually decided that Oracle is the best to help us achieve these goals for our next generation PRM solution. We selected Oracle Sales, Marketing and Social Cloud Services along with Java and Integration Cloud Services to provide extensions and integrations. With the new Oracle Cloud solution, integrated with our own engagement solutions, we expect to take our partner experience to the next level while reducing about 80 percent of customizations and 30 percent of ongoing costs.”

Oracle Appoints David Donatelli to Lead Converged Infrastructure Business

Oracle Database News - Thu, 06/18/2015 - 19:26
Oracle Appoints David Donatelli to Lead Converged Infrastructure BusinessAs the Only Company Innovating from Chip to Cloud, Oracle Poised for Continued Hardware Growth Redwood Shores, Calif. – June 18, 2015

As Oracle continues to lead in hardware, the company has hired technology industry veteran and hardware infrastructure expert David Donatelli as Executive Vice President, Converged Infrastructure.

Reporting directly to Oracle CEO Mark Hurd, Donatelli will be responsible for Oracle infrastructure offerings including the company’s engineered systems, server, storage, networking and tape products. He will also help the company respond to customer demand for Oracle’s hardware solutions that operate in a hybrid cloud environment.

“David joins Oracle at a pivotal time, when we are the only major hardware company in the industry experiencing growth,” said Oracle CEO Mark Hurd. “I can think of no one more qualified to continue to accelerate our growth, differentiate our offerings, and further cement the leadership of Oracle’s global hardware business.”

Most recently, Donatelli served as executive vice president and general manager of the Enterprise Group at Hewlett-Packard. In that role, he led the group responsible for the enterprise hardware business, which includes storage, server, networking and converged infrastructure solutions.

“Joining Oracle was an easy decision,” said David Donatelli. “In an industry where our hardware competitors are in chaos, Oracle stands alone with our strategy to engineer all layers of the software and hardware stack to work together seamlessly whether on premise or in the Oracle Cloud. No one else in the industry can do this and I’m excited to be a part of it.”
