Boston, Massachusetts – (The Hosting News) – April 4, 2006 – A new Accelerator service designed to help customers streamline the deployment of a grid-ready infrastructure for data centers has been released by enterprise software companies, Novell and Oracle.
The application features Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Application Server 10g, and Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g for customers running on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server from Novell. The solution takes advantage of Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control (Oracle Grid Control) and the Automated Storage Management feature of Oracle Database 10g to provide a complete, customer-ready management solution for monitoring and managing grid applications and infrastructure software and storage.
