October 5th, 2011 By: John Rath
Here are a few of the Oracle Partner Network companies with OpenWorld 2011 news:
Emerson Network Power, an Emerson (EMR) business announced the details of its use of Oracle Fusion Middleware in the development of the Trellis platform. The Trellis platform is a combination of Oracle Fusion Middleware’s Application Integration Architecture and components, and Emerson’s expertise in data center systems. The middleware allows a common language to be used between the many applications and systems managed by Trellis and gives scalability to handle the huge amounts of data that must be consolidated and analyzed to provide real-time visibility and control. “The challenge data center managers face today is that current generation systems do not have the ability to understand what is happening in the complex critical infrastructure and why,” said Steve Hassell, president of Emerson Network Power’s Avocent business. “Our experience in servers, power, cooling, infrastructure management software, services and embedded firmware technologies that span IT and facilities’ domains, combined with the power of Oracle Fusion Middleware, has enabled us to create a game-changing data center management platform that allows our customers to maximize data center availability, capacity and efficiency.”
Savvis launches Symphony cloud-based Database. Savvis, a CenturyLink company (CTL) announced the launch of Savvis Symphony Database, a cloud-based database platform. Announced at OpenWorld 2011 it brings the advantages of cloud computing to Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server environments. Selecting from Oracle Enterprise 11G RAC or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 users can provision everything needed for a complete database solution with just a few clicks. ”Symphony Database offers the agility that enterprises require of their database solutions, including the ability to burst both performance levels and infrastructure to accommodate the varying demands placed on the database environment,” said Brent Juelich, senior director, managed services at Savvis. “Unlike traditional database offerings, Symphony Database does not require hardware provisioning and software licensing, freeing enterprises from long-term contracts and expenses.”
