HP announces the availability of Oracle environments for customers

HP recently announced at Oracle OpenWorld 2009 new HP BladeSystem Matrix provisioning templates and reference configurations for Oracle solutions on HP infrastructure.

The best-practice provisioning Oracle templates streamline deployment of applications with HP BladeSystem Matrix, a converged server, storage and networking platform. As a result, customers can deploy all the servers, storage and network resources needed for an entire Oracle application much more swiftly

“Customers need to increase data center utilisation, enhance staff productivity and quickly adjust their infrastructure as business demands change,” said Andrew McNiven, HP Enterprise Business, Industry Standard Server Product Manager, HP South Africa. “With more servers running more Oracle applications than any other vendor, HP understands how to optimise these environments and has now built this knowledge into BladeSystem Matrix via Oracle application templates.”

“HP is a very important partner for Oracle. For many years our teams have worked closely to deliver superior engineering and technology integration for our joint customers,” said Stephen Boyle, vice president, Strategic Alliances, Oracle. “The move toward converged server, storage and network infrastructure will provide further opportunity for Oracle and HP to deliver scalable solutions based on HP platforms with Oracle VM and Oracle Grid environments that can help dramatically simplify and reduce costs in the data center.”
