What has become so critical in today's competitive business is the ability to fulfill the sudden and unpredictable demands that arises. It requires data centers agility, rapid deployments and cloud ready solutions. To succeed in today's modern business, companies must be ready to deploy innovative applications and quickly adopt the changes in the market.
Oracle Private Cloud Appliance (PCA) is an integrated, 'wire once' converged system designed for fast cloud and rapid application deployments at the data centers. PCA is a one stop system for all your applications, where mixed operating systems (Linux, Solaris, RHEL and Windows) workloads can be consolidated into a single machine.
Its has been observed off-late here in GCC specially, more and more organization are moving towards the PCA adoption. Hence, I thought of just writing a blog explaining the prime features and functionalities of PCA. Once I get some hands-on (which is in the very near future), I would love to write some advance concepts about of PCA and how really organization benefited with PCA.
Here are the key features of PCA:
A pair of management servers are installed in a active/standard for HA. The master management node runs the full set of services, whereas the standby node runs only a subset of services.
The compute nodes (Oracle Servers X series) constitutes the virtual platforms and provides the processing power and memory capacity for the servers they hosted. The entire functionality is orchestrated by the management node (master).
Stay tuned for more updates on this.
