Oracle and Mirantis power DBaaS through OpenStack clouds
18 May 2015 | 0
Ahead of the OpenStack Summit, Oracle has announced a collaboration with Mirantis to power database as a service (DaaS) in private clouds.
The partners are enabling Oracle Solaris and Mirantis OpenStack users to accelerate application and database provisioning in private cloud environments via Murano, the application project in the OpenStack ecosystem.
The move brings Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant deployed on Oracle Solaris to Murano, the first Oracle cloud-ready products to be available in the project.
Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Solaris, said Oracle, combines the “advanced security, enterprise class reliability, and ease of administration of the Oracle Solaris operating system” with the “agility of OpenStack to create the premier, comprehensive cloud platform for running enterprise applications and Oracle Database”.
Oracle Multitenant, introduced with Oracle Database 12c, allows multiple pluggable databases to be supported within a single multitenant container database. Each pluggable database provides a secure, isolated environment in which to run applications. The consolidated container databases represent a single environment for a cloud provider to support, “enabling tremendous economies of scale”, said Oracle.
Cloud users and developers can now securely provision pluggable databases on Oracle Solaris from OpenStack, and allow applications to securely access new and existing pluggable databases from within OpenStack.
“We are excited to announce our work with Mirantis to make it even simpler to combine the deep integration of Oracle Solaris, Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant with OpenStack. It lets customers take advantage of the security of Oracle Solaris and the power of Software in Silicon technology built into Oracle’s upcoming SPARC M7 processor-based systems in their private OpenStack clouds,” said Markus Flierl, vice president of Oracle Solaris.
“Oracle Database is critical for many enterprises,” said Mirantis CEO Adrian Ionel. “The integration between Oracle Database 12c, Oracle Solaris and Mirantis OpenStack in the upcoming Mirantis OpenStack 6.1 release will allow those customers to quickly deploy Oracle Database applications with a few clicks.”
