Oracle Virtual Networking Enhanced

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Oct. 31 — Oracle today announced new enhancements to Oracle Virtual Networking to help customers further improve infrastructure performance, reduce cost and complexity, and simplify storage and server connectivity.

Oracle Virtual Networking is the industry’s first and only open architecture data center fabric that simplifies complex data center deployments with a wire-once solution and simple software defined network configurations.

Oracle Virtual Networking is the only data center fabric with up to 80 Gb/sec bandwidth to the server that can deliver large server pools with scalable I/O configurations.

Building on Oracle Virtual Networking’s support for a broad range of x86 and SPARC servers, operating systems and leading hypervisors, the enhancements announced today are:

  • SPARC M6-32 Server Support: Oracle Virtual Networking now supports Oracle’s full SPARC portfolio, including the SPARC M6-32 server.
  • Customers can take advantage of Oracle’s fastest and most scalable server, which is designed for in-memory computing and offers the highest levels of availability. Oracle Virtual Networking now also supports the Fujitsu M10 server.
  • High Availability for Storage: Oracle Virtual Networking now supports Oracle Solaris I/O Multi-pathing, providing customers high availability for storage. Customers can build a fully virtualized environment with no single point of failure.
  • Oracle Linux and Oracle VM Integration: Oracle Virtual Networking drivers are now included in Oracle VM and Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel Release 2, streamlining access without the need to download or install drivers separately.

Oracle Virtual Networking continues to experience significant growth across a wide range of industries and with added support for Oracle’s SPARC servers, it is gaining traction in new industries like financial services and retail.

Oracle Virtual Networking can help customers achieve results like these:

  • Improve application performance by 4 times
  • Reduce infrastructure complexity by 70 percent
  • Cut LAN and SAN capital expenditures by 50 percent
  • Provision new services and reconfigure resources in minutes, not days
  • Oracle will host a Webcast on November 19 at 10 a.m. PT to provide a deeper dive into Oracle Virtual Networking and today’s news.
