Infotech Lead India: Oracle has announced general availability of Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Release 2 for enterprise private cloud applications.
The release introduces unique capabilities for deploying and managing business applications in an enterprise private cloud, such as Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), enhanced business application management, and integrated hardware-software management for Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud.
Oracle also announced the creation of new IOUG and UKOUG Management Special Interest Groups considering the growing demand from customers.
Oracle Enterprise Manager combines management of the full Oracle stack with complete enterprise cloud lifecycle management. It helps IT organizations fast track their cloud transformations while reducing IT management cost and effort.
The latest capabilities are designed to increase Cloud control. The new capabilities allow customers to build and manage a Java Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud based on Oracle WebLogic Server, including guided set up of a PaaS Cloud, self-service provisioning, automatic scale out, and metering and chargeback.
“With this release, we are building on the innovations in Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c to help our customers further reduce cost and complexity,” said Richard Sarwal, Oracle senior vice president, Product Development. “By helping IT organizations increase efficiency and responsiveness, Oracle is reducing management challenges and helping customers take full advantage of the cloud.”
Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Release 2 also comes with enhanced lifecycle management capabilities for Oracle WebLogic Server and integrated hardware-software management for Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud through features such as rack schematics visualization and integrated monitoring of all hardware and software components.
For business-critical applications, the solution is enhanced with a new Business Application (BA) target type and dashboard with flexible definitions that provides a logical view of an application’s business transactions, end-user experiences and the cloud infrastructure the monitored application is running on.
The Oracle Real User Experience Insight has been enhanced to provide reporting capabilities on client-side issues for applications running in the cloud and has been more tightly coupled with Oracle Business Transaction Management to help ensure that real-time user experience and transaction tracing data is provided to users in context.
Additionally the new features address ease of administration, reporting and extensibility for massively scalable cloud environments including dynamic groups, self-updateable monitoring templates, and bulk operations against many events.
Recently Oracle also introduced Oracle Exalytics In-Memory Machine, the industry’s first high-speed engineered system featuring in-memory business intelligence (BI) software and hardware to deliver extreme performance for analytic and performance management applications.
