Cisco Unified Computing: Reliable, Scalable Platform for Oracle
Proven Information Platform
Companies rely on real-time accurate information to increase business success. However, IT departments are inundated with multiple database solutions, applications, and hardware platforms, creating greater complexity in the data center. Standardizing on the Cisco Unified Computing System* running Oracle* solutions provides a scalable, reliable, and high-performance information platform crucial for business. This proven and radically simplified platform, together with Oracle* solutions, quickly and consistently secures corporate data assets with less risk and at a lower total cost of ownership (TCO).
Built-in Reliability, Availability, and Serviceability
For companies to be truly competitive, information must be accessible at any time by multiple users. The loss of access to data due to software or hardware failures could impede important decisions and cause loss of revenue. This possibility makes the reliability and availability of the information platform critical. Additionally, when failures do occur, the ease of serviceability is vital to reducing outages and making data quickly available. Together, Oracle* and Cisco* solutions are easily configured to have no single point of failure, helping ensure continuous access to important corporate data resources by business-critical applications. The Cisco Unified Computing System* is a wire-once, integrated, redundant system that includes optimized computing nodes, networking resources, and storage access. The Intel® Xeon® processors, powering high-performance computing, allow detection and handling of hardware anomalies so that data-bases and applications can be rehosted quickly on an alternative server, using Cisco* service profiles, with little or no downtime. Alternatively, high availability is achieved with a combination of Oracle* software and Cisco Unified Computing System* hardware design and capabilities. Moreover, business continuity is simplified with Cisco* service profiles quickly loaded onto the recovery-site platforms for immediate replication of the main site configurations.
