Oracle Supports Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud

Secure Backup Cloud Module also released

Oracle’s 11g Database, Fusion Middleware and Enterprise Manager now support Amazon’s Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
Oracle said Monday that customers can use their existing software licenses on EC2 for no additional fees as well as a set of free Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) to provision virtual machines with the Oracle software.

According to Oracle, developers can rapidly build applications using Oracle tools like Application Express, JDeveloper, Enterprise Pack for Eclipse and Workshop for WebLogic.

Oracle also said its Unbreakable Linux and Amazon Premium support is available for Oracle Enterprise Linux on EC2.

Oracle has introduced a secure Cloud-based backup solution, called Secure Backup Cloud Module, based on its tape backup management software, Oracle Secure Backup, so customers can use Amazon’s Simple Storage Service (S3) as their database backup destination.

The backup widgetry is supposed to enable encrypted data backups for complete privacy in the Cloud environment. It’s integrated with Oracle Recovery Manager and Enterprise Manager so users have familiar interfaces for Cloud-based backups.

Amazon is now supposed to allow the creation of network peering connections to quickly move very large volumes of data in and out of the AWS cloud. And Oracle and Amazon say they are working on solutions that will enable cost-effective, high-volume backups and restores, even in network-bandwidth-constrained environments, by means of physical import and export.

EC2 is one of the topics that will be covered by Amazon CTO Dr Werner Vogels in his Cloud Computing Keynote at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo in November in San Jose, California.

Vogels heads up a star-studded lineup of speakers covering the hottest IT topic for years, with Amazon, IBM, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Intel, HP and a host of others all offering, using or developing high-end computing services typically described as “cloud computing” - through which massively scalable IT-related capabilities are provided as a service using Internet technologies.

Forrester Research analyst James Staten calls cloud computing "classic disruptive innovation - where the mainstream dismisses the product and small companies have time to create a real differentiated value." But there are so many offerings just now that what infrastructure architects are looking for above all is a set of organizing principles they can use to guide them in choosing between them all.

Such principles. and a host of associated Cloud topics, will be addressed in San Jose by:

  • Dr Werner Vogels - VP & CTO, Amazon.com (Keynote)
  • Reuven Cohen - Founder & Chief Technologist, Enomaly
  • Mike Eaton - CEO, Cloudworks
  • Peter Nickolov - Co-Founder & CTO, 3Tera
  • Jonathan Bryce - Founder at Mosso (Rackspace)
  • Nati Shalom - CTO, GigaSpaces
  • Don MacAskill - CEO & Chief Geek, SmugMug
  • Mike Feinberg - Senior Vice President, Cloud Infrastructure Group, EMC
  • Billy Marshall - Founder & CEO, rPath
  • Dr Thorsten von Eicken - CTO & Founder, RightScale
  • Songnian Zhou - Co-Founder & CEO, Platform Computing
  • Patrick Harr, CEO - Nirvanix
  • David Young - Co-Founder & CEO, Joyent
  • Dave Durkee - CEO, ENKI
  • John Janakiraman - CTO, Skytap
  • Stuart Charlton - Chief Software Architect, Elastra
  • Lars Leckie, Principal, Hummer Winblad Venture Partners
  • Dr Rich Wolski - Professor, U.C. Santa Barbara
  • Javier Soltero - Co-Founder & CEO of Hyperic
  • Omer Trajman - Director of Field Engineering, Vertica Systems

The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of rec...
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
