Available Now: Oracle Private Cloud Appliance Software Release 2.3.1
Private Cloud Appliance (PCA) is a turnkey engineered system built
for rapid and extremely cost-effective deployment of private cloud.
It runs both Oracle and non-Oracle workloads on a mix of operating
systems: Linux, Oracle Solaris and Microsoft Windows.
PCA is unique in the industry because it is a
preconfigured, prebuilt engineered system that combines compute,
network and internal storage resources in a software-defined
fabric. Virtualization via Oracle VM is included at no additional
cost, with prebuilt Oracle VM based virtual appliances or templates
available to speed up application delivery. This enables the most
agile and efficient data center deployments. It is built on the
same underlying technologies as the public Oracle Cloud and
leverages the same cloud management tool, Oracle Enterprise
Manager, enabling the ability to deliver a true hybrid cloud model.
software release further builds on the solution's differentiated
ability to simplify manageability and deliver easy usability.
Enhancements have been made in 3 key areas: Improved Software Infrastructure PCA now supports Oracle VM 3.4.2,
enabling these benefits:
More effective use of local storage with
storage live migration.
management with hot memory modification.
reliability with automated management database backup and
and disk I/O performance for Microsoft Windows workloads with
the signed Oracle VM paravirtual (PV) drivers for Microsoft
Hardware Infrastructure We've made it easier to quote and order PCA
expansion racks. PCA supports max of 2 expansion racks with 30
compute nodes each for 85 max compute nodes, fully expanded. Our
full support for expansion racks delivers these benefits:
Ability to extend multitenancy across expansion
Easy to plug into
networking with integrated, precabled infrastructure.
Expand memory on
the Compute Nodes up to 1.5 TB.
Redesigned VM console access via HTML5 for
Introducing a VLAN
user interface for improved VLAN handling.
the latest software enhancements were made as a direct result of
feedback gathered by sales and customers regarding usability and
accessibility enhancements. This release further builds on the
solution's differentiated ability to simplify management and
deliver easy usability. Remember that PCA is unique because it
is a preconfigured, prebuilt engineered system that enables the
rapid and extremely cost-effective deployment of private cloud. And
because the full solution is engineered and supported by Oracle,
customers can deploy quicker with fewer chance of errors and
receive single vendor support.
Remember these key differentiators:
PCA includes Oracle VM at no additional cost.
And Trusted Partitioning helps make it 30-50% more
cost-effective than competing solutions.
intelligently, one node at a time, versus buying new
configurations as required with competing solutions.
Unlike with Vblock
or Flexpod, PCA customers can take advantage of flexible
storage options – whether Oracle storage or third party.
PCA is a
single-vendor solution, easier to operate and support than
typical self-assembled solutions.
PCA is cloud ready,
built on the same technologies as the public Oracle Cloud. It
leverages the same management tool, Oracle Enterprise Manager,
for simple provisioning, monitoring, disaster recovery and
hybrid cloud management.
controller software version 2.3.1 supersedes all other versions of
the controller software. This release includes newer features as
well as a number of bug fixes. It is recommended to be on this
version of the software.
Cloud Appliance-base racks are factory installed with the latest
supported generation of server nodes. Earlier generations of the
Oracle Private Cloud Appliance continue to be supported by the
Oracle Private Cloud Appliance controller software.
The Oracle Private Cloud Appliance controller
software must be upgraded to the correct version to support the
newest hardware generation installed in your environment. An Oracle
Private Cloud Appliance rack can be populated with a mix of
