Oracle has joined the OpenStack® Foundation and has plans to Integrate OpenStack Capabilities into Oracle Solaris, Oracle Linux, Oracle VM, Oracle Virtual Compute Appliance, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, Oracle’s ZS3 Series, Axiom Storage Systems and StorageTek Tape Systems. The company which has become the Openstack sponsor, intends to enable customers to use OpenStack to manage Oracle technology-based clouds, taking full advantage of the stability, efficiency, performance, scalability and security of these Oracle products. Integration with OpenStack will allow customers to integrate Oracle Solaris Zones and Oracle VM environments with other OpenStack platforms. In addition, Oracle also plans to provide OpenStack Object Storage (project name Swift) compatibility for Oracle Storage Cloud Service, which offers a highly-available, redundant and secure object store for managing large-scale unstructured data.
“Oracle is pleased to join the OpenStack Foundation and plans to integrate OpenStack capabilities into a broad set of Oracle products and cloud services,” said Edward Screven, chief corporate architect, Oracle. “Our goal is to give customers greater choice and flexibility in how they use Oracle products and services in public and private clouds.”
