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

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
