Oracle Launches ‘Private Cloud’ Box

aesoteric writes “Oracle chief executive Larry Ellison has used the keynote of Oracle OpenWorld to launch the ‘Exalogic Elastic Compute Cloud’ — an appliance combining server and storage hardware with a pre-tuned web server, hypervisor and other middleware. Introducing the product as ‘a honking big cloud in a box,’ Ellison shifted from his previous criticism of the terms ‘cloud computing’ and ‘private cloud’ by using the exact same terms to sell a physical appliance.”
Oracle also took the wraps off Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel for Oracle Linux, which is based on the 2.6.32 Linux kernel.
