Looking back at Oracle OpenWorld: Intelligent Automation and Oracle on UCS

October 17, 2011 - 0 Comments

In case you missed it, the Cisco Intelligent Automation team was at Oracle OpenWorld a couple weeks ago. This fall has been packed with events for our team, ranging from major partner shows like SAP TechEd and VMworld to local Cisco Tech Days – and we’re at VMworld in Copenhagen this week.

That’s because our Intelligent Automation software solutions are relevant across the entire IT landscape. The more resources and applications that Cisco Intelligent Automation manages, the more our customers achieve efficiencies in their data center – including for Oracle applications and database management.

The Oracle event was a success for Intelligent Automation. We had three theater presentations and two demo pods about Cisco Intelligent Automation for Cloud and Cisco Tidal Enterprise Scheduler for Oracle enterprise applications running on Cisco UCS. We had great discussions about the heterogeneous adapter framework built into these solutions and showed our self-service provisioning and cross-application workload automation capabilities.

Here’s the presentation highlighting the Intelligent Automation solution at OracleWorld:

So why add Intelligent Automation to Oracle running on UCS? Cisco UCS and Nexus are an unbeatable combination for Oracle data center environments, and Cisco Intelligent Automation is the kicker. Our solutions allow users to automatically provision and manage IT services such as Oracle app hosting or database hosting – including for dev/test environments in a private cloud – with secure self-service access through the Cisco Cloud Portal.

Then, when your data center operations are automated and optimized for your Oracle application and database stack on the UCS platform, Cisco’s best-in-class workload automation reduces the need for manual intervention and eliminates time buffers for job scheduling, streamlining your runtime environment.

Taken as a whole, Intelligent Automation and UCS deliver rapid infrastructure provisioning and automated scalability for your Oracle application and database stack.
