In the realm of virtualization, the move specifically increases Oracle’s investment in data center infrastructure as Xsigo is a key producer of fabric solutions.
“The proliferation of virtualized servers in the last few years has made the virtualization of the supporting network connections essential,” commented Oracle Executive VP on Systems John Fowler in a press release regarding the matter
Fowler continued, “With Xsigo, customers can reduce the complexity and simplify management of their clouds by delivering compute, storage and network resources that can be dynamically reallocated on-demand.”
Just how big of a player is Xsigo in the tech industry? Oracle made sure to point out that just some of the company’s customers included the likes of Verizon, eBay and more.
Xsigo’s fabric affords data centers as much as “112Gbps of bandwidth per server,” according to the company’s website.
Before Oracle’s big data center play, co-technology provider VMware made its own large company transaction just last week when agreeing to buy cloud and openstack specialist Nicira for a reported cost of $1.05 billion.
Aside from its database solutions, Oracle’s products deal with Java, enterprise management, servers, systems and more.
