Growth powered by IBM and Oracle
Strong growth requires change on both business and technology fronts. You need an infrastructure that can help you manage rapid change, reduce business risk and meet higher service levels—all in the most cost-effective manner. IBM and Oracle have been working together for nearly three decades to help companies anticipate and adapt to the constantly evolving business landscape with IT solutions that support both current and future technology needs.
IBM® Power Systems™ servers deliver a wide product portfolio to support Oracle Databases, middleware and applications. Clients can expect tightly integrated development—including sizing, tuning and training at a variety of centers around the world—and support from both companies. We also offer products to help our clients get the most out of their Oracle investment. These offering include:
- IBM PowerVM™, a secure and scalable virtualization environment for your Oracle Database. In addition, PowerVM Live Partition Mobility (Youtube, 00:02:07) helps minimize downtime by shifting workloads from one server to another. IBM is the first vendor to have partition migration certified for use with Oracle Database.
- IBM i Solution Edition for JD Edwards (PDF, 774KB), is purpose-built to support JD Edwards EnterpriseOne and JD Edwards World software. Because it is built with IBM POWER7+™ or POWER8™ processor technology, IBM i Solution Edition for JD Edwards provides increased scalability and the ability to run more JD Edwards EnterpriseOne or World users in a single footprint.
- Oracle workload performance leadership, continues to be demonstrated with Oracle validated benchmark results for Oracle applications such as Siebel, JD Edwards EnterpriseOne, and Oracle E-Business Suite. With multi-threading (SMT-8) capability built into the POWER8 processors, the IBM Power Systems family is optimized for maximum Oracle Database and application throughput and performance using the lowest amount of processing resources, enabling the highest level of consolidation and the associated cost benefits.
