Infotech Lead America: Oracle announced the launch of Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software 2.0.

With this launch, Oracle will be looking at strengthening its presence in Cloud. 40 percent of Oracle Exalogic’s growth comes from customers who have selected Exalogic over competing solutions from IBM, including mainframes.

Customers in 43 countries across 22 industries have already adopted Oracle Exalogic.

Oracle claims that Exalogic is the fastest growing Oracle engineered system with 3x Y/Y sales bookings based on the last two quarters of FY 2012.


The Oracle Exalogic engineered system offers up to 10x performance gains for Oracle Applications, Java-based applications and other business applications.

Oracle said the cloud solution also provides up to 6x faster application provisioning to help customers quickly respond to changing market needs.

Oracle Exalogic provides customers and partners with an engineered system that accelerates the performance and can protect and maximize return on their existing and future Oracle software investments.
