Oracle has unveiled its 9iApplication Server Release 2 for early 2002. There are more than 250 new features for the updated version that are aimed at providing enhanced availability, scalability and reliability.

“An increased level of service is a chief objective for most organisations in the Middle East and Oracle’s 9iAS enables Oracle’s customers in the region to meet this goal. Oracle9iAS’ reliability, security and scalability, as well as its ease of use, allow businesses to spend less time and IT resources on integration and more time on core business issues,” said Ayman Abouseif, marketing director for Oracle Eastern and Central Europe, Middle East and Africa (ECEMEA).

Oracle says the 9iAS has gained momentum in the Middle East recently. It cites big wins such as the Dubai Department of Economic Development and Gulf Insurance Company that have both deployed 9i-based business applications as well as multinationals with regional interests such as Compaq and Motorola. Oracle asserts that the 9iAS is the only complete and integrated platform that provides 360 degrees of integration – linking applications, data, services, users, customers and partners.

Among the 250 new features are: advanced clustering, dynamic reconfiguration, hardware independent J2EE cluster islands, rolling upgrades, hot deployments and Fast Start Recovery Fault Architecture. Revised caching and availability features ensure that there is no single point of failure. Other additional features include better access for voice access to Internet applications, wireless messaging, wireless security and mobile email.

The enterprise and standard versions of Oracle9i AS will be available from Q1 2002. A free developer version is available now from the Oracle Technology Network.
