Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Design and Deployment on Oracle*
Intel® Cloud Builders Guide: Intel® Xeon® Processor-based Servers, Cloud Design, and Deployment on Intel® Platforms: Oracle
AUDIENCE AND PURPOSE
This reference architecture outlines an enterprise cloud infrastructure deployment using Oracle’s complete stack with servers, storage, network, and software components. The Oracle Optimized Solution for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure* makes use of preconfigured Oracle VM* virtual machines, that contain optimized configurations for running applications on Oracle’s Sun* Blade 6000 Modular Systems with Intel® Xeon® processor-based blade servers and Oracle’s Sun* ZFS Storage Appliances. Using the contents of this paper, which includes detailed scenarios and screen shots, should significantly reduce the learning curve for building and operating your first cloud computing infrastructure.
IT organizations typically spend many weeks to plan, architect, and deploy a multivendor solution; the process is not only time consuming, but also error-prone, making it hard to get the best value from the investment. This document offers a much simpler approach that speeds deployment and reduces risk. It is a single-vendor solution for the entire hardware and software stack and can be deployed in hours or days rather than weeks.
Because the creation and operation of a cloud can require integration and customization to existing IT infrastructure and business requirements, it is not expected that this paper can be used “as-is.” For example, adaptation to an existing network and identification of management requirements are out of scope for this paper. Therefore, it is expected that the user of this paper will make adjustments to the design to meet specific customer requirements. This paper is assumed to be a starting point for that journey.
