Fujitsu Siemens is gearing up for the launch of its FlexFrame for Oracle solutions, which will be available from January 2006. Offering an end-to-end infrastructure for grid computing, FlexFrame for Oracle will bring together preconfigured and certified server, storage and software components. “IT directors need infrastructures that enable them directly to address the needs of their business,” said Dieter Herzog, executive VP enterprise products and solutions at Fujitsu Siemens. “FlexFrame for Oracle does this and provides them with an answer that helps them on two fronts: it brings down costs and increases efficiency immediately and it fits into existing environments.” “Together with Oracle we provide an answer to their needs. Oracle’s very advanced grid technology in combination with our capabilities enables us to go to market with a compelling proposition for IT directors all over the world,” Herzog added. The offering is designed to automate all tasks across the grid allowing users to gain a single view of the complete server environment, saving valuable IT resources through optimised utilisation of the infrastructure. The combination of Fujitsu Siemens adaptive services control centre and specific virtualisation technologies with Oracle 10g and Oracle enterprise manager grid control monitoring promises ground breaking capabilities in the datacentre environment, according to the two vendors. “Both Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Oracle see grid computing as a major step forward in the evolution of IT infrastructure,” said Sergio Giacoletto, executive VP at Oracle EMEA. “The recent Oracle grid index shows that grid computing is on the verge of becoming mainstream, with growing scores for adoption. However, its other message is that we, as vendors, must continue to drive grid computing into the mainstream by offering whole solutions.” “No one vendor offers the whole piece and so partnerships are vital — and the one between Fujitsu Siemens Computers and Oracle to create the FlexFrame for Oracle is one such. The key thing is that both companies bring unique contributions to a strategic partnership.” FlexFrame for Oracle is targeted at customers with business critical applications, whose usage amounts vary dramatically over time and for whom continuous availability is essential. The new solution addresses the entire market of J2EE-based applications, runs on blade servers and industry standard storage, and is an open software platform, enabling customers to virtualise the software stack and run application and database services on any server in a grid at any time.
