Oracle's Fusion technology more effective in the cloud
Tuesday, May 08, 2012
Database giant Oracle has identified cloud computing as an essential part of its solutions moving forward. A recent Computerworld report indicated that Oracle senior vice president Chris Leone said that customers of the company's Fusion Applications suite have asserted the technology is better suited for the cloud rather than an on-premise offering.
The news provider reported that IT Convergence, an IT systems integrator, launched an on-premise deployment of the Fusion platform to provide its employees with and on-hands experience with the software. Chief technology officer Gustavo Gonzalez said the cloud is most likely better for a majority of companies because it lessens the number of installation challenges of hosting Fusion themselves.
Oracle is hoping more companies adopt the cloud moving forward and it has launched new solutions to support this movement, as well as boost Oracle performance for customers using its applications. Last month, the company released a new lineup of Sun x86 servers to improve cloud, virtualization and system management reliability by pairing them with the Oracle Premier Support platform.
"Whether you're looking to support new applications or deploy in the cloud, Oracle's new x86 servers are ideal platforms for Oracle software with comprehensive management, virtualization and support built-in," noted Oracle hardware engineering vice president Ali Alasti.
