HP Offers Solutions for Running Oracle Applications in the Private Cloud

These solutions are designed on top of a BladeSystem Matrix architecture

Setting aside the recent controversy and struggles between the two companies over Mark Hurd’s move from HP to Oracle, HP has recently announced a new set of solutions that are designed to run a number of Oracle apps via a private cloud architecture.

Hurd’s move took place after a scandal that accused him of falsifying expense reports as well as having an inappropriate relationship with a contractor. Hurd was named the co-president of Oracle, which was followed almost immediately by a civil suit from HP declaring that Hurd won’t be able to do the job without violating a confidentiality agreement portion of the severance package that HP provided.

Further complicating the matter is the recent acquisition of Sun by Oracle, which puts Oracle in the hardware business and positions them as a direct competitor to HP.

While all of that is mildly interesting, the real question is what the situation will do to the relationship between HP and Oracle in both the short term and the long term. There are many Oracle implementations in the wild that run on HP hardware, and that’s not likely to change anytime soon.

HP is moving forward with its Private Cloud Solutions for Oracle Applications. This new product line includes support for Oracle’s PeopleSoft, the E-Business Suite, and even for the upcoming Fusion Infrastructure, which Oracle intends to release in the first quarter of 2011.

These solutions are designed on top of a BladeSystem Matrix architecture. They utilize Cloud Maps, which consists of templates, whitepapers and workflows, to get customers up and running fast. The solutions offer integrated storage, server and network management, helping to reduce operating costs by a significant margin.

The solutions will hit the market beginning in October with the PeopleSoft release, with the E-Business Suite as well as the Fusion versions following between then and the end of 2010.

How all of this pans out in light of recent events remains to be seen, but what is certain is that HP is likely to face some stiff competition from Oracle itself when it comes to hardware infrastructure that underpins Oracle applications.
