OOW13: WebLogic on Oracle Database Appliance: Combining High Availability and Simplicity
19 Sep 2013 by Simon Haslam (in Events)
Regular readers will know that over the last year I've put a lot of effort into researching the Oracle Database Appliance (ODA), in preparation for the WebLogic on ODA release. This is a very interesting product for Oracle Fusion Middleware architects and administrators, and this summer I was fortunate enough to be able to work with a customer on a Proof of Concept (POC).
Apart from my earlier ODA X3-2 and ODA virtualisation platform posts, I've also written about the POC itself...
...with two obvious ommissions - the test results, and the conclusions! This wasn't a deliberate case of 'witholding of interesting infromation' but simply a combination of a summer holiday and important project deadlines!
Anyway, if you're keen to hear about our results and outcome, and are at Oracle OpenWorld next week, please come alone to a joint presentation by myself and Frances Zhao (who is responsible for WebLogic on ODA within Oracle Product Managment). In this session Frances will be discussing the platform design and benefits, whereas I will talk cadidly (afterall I'm not an Oracle employee!) about my experiences during the POC. I will explain what I now see as ODA's benefits and constraints, and think that it will be useful for those considering ODA for their business critical WebLogic and database infrastructure.
Oracle WebLogic Server on Oracle Database Appliance offers a complete solution for building and deploying enterprise Java EE applications in a fully integrated system of software, servers, storage, and networking that delivers highly available database and WebLogic services. In this session, we will discuss how WebLogic is deployed on Database Appliance virtual environment and what the benefits of deploying to this platform are.
