The new software will help customers and partners reduce the cost and complexity of managing business applications.
Customers already are beginning to take advantage of the cost savings and performance enhancements offered by grid computing thanks to the convergence of key technology trends, such as standardizing on low-cost commodity hardware and consolidating servers into clusters. Nevertheless, these new grid computing environments can make it extraordinarily difficult for system administrators to manage using traditional management tools. Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g directly addresses these management demands.
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g introduces automated management software that provides a complete view of a company’s computing infrastructure. System administrators can enforce policies, manage service levels, and rebalance existing computing resources and applications as business requirements change – with the highest quality of service.
“Oracle’s Enterprise Manager 10g is designed specifically for managing and monitoring the Oracle environment and adds real value for Oracle’s customers,” said Paul Mason, group vice president of Infrastructure Software Research at IDC. “Perhaps the most important attribute is that it comes preconfigured and ready to use, so organizations can immediately benefit without having to do upfront customization or configuration.”
New Grid Software Transforms Data Into Valuable Information
As part of the Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g announcement, Oracle today introduced Oracle Grid Control, new software designed to help customers monitor and manage entire Oracle grid infrastructures – from databases and applications to storage – all within a single console. Oracle Grid Control is the industry’s first grid management product to recommend expert advice on how to better plan for capacity, availability and performance needs within a grid. At the core of Oracle Grid Control is a “control repository” that contains performance, availability and configuration data about the entire enterprise, as well as a set of centralized management capabilities that transform and configure data into valuable information. Using Oracle Grid Control, administrators can reduce the complexity of managing multiple servers in a cluster and automate the management of computing resources.
“Managing enterprise grids is a technology discipline that encompasses architectural issues, people, processes and best practices,” said Husam Dajani, Vice president, Server, Oracle Middle East. “Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g is a product of Oracle’s world-class data center management experience, delivering new levels of automation and intelligence to help administrators increase productivity.”
Open and Extensible
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g is built on an open, standards-based architecture. It supports key management standards, including Common Information Model (CIM) and Web-based Enterprise Management (WBEM) developed by Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF).
Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g and Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control is scheduled to be available by the end of this year on all supported platforms. Members of Oracle Technology Network (OTN) will be able to download the new management software free of charge at http://otn.oracle.com.
