Exciting Year Ahead for Cloud Application Foundation, Exalogic and Java in the Cloud

During the Christmas Holidays, I spent some time thinking through some work priorities for 2015. The team is delivering a host of new product releases. These are the fruits of multiple years of fundamental innovations and collaboration by multiple teams that I have the opportunity to manage and work with. 

Some great innovations we have planned include: 

Exalogic Elastic Cloud X5-2 - marking the next generation of Oracle Engineered System for running Java, Oracle Middleware and Oracle Applications with breakthrough performance and scalability and integrated app to disk manageability. For more see this post.

Exalogic Elastic Cloud Software 12c - this long awaited release of the next generation of Exalogic Software features the same technology stack as Oracle Cloud - specifically the Infrastructure as a Service and Platform as a Service implementation provided on the public cloud. This innovation offers customers the opportunity to realize hybrid cloud, today. As part of our next release, customers will get access to the Java Cloud Service, on premise with Exalogic. Other PaaS services from Oracle Cloud will follow. Intrigued? See this video.

Weblogic Server Multi-tenant - tired of virtual machine hangover? 1000s of virtual machines to manage? Weblogic's next innovation is multi-tenancy built directly into the Java EE runtime. What this means is faster startup times, more efficient memory utilization resulting in smaller server footprints, and a significant reduction in the number of Weblogic domains to manage. 

Java Cloud Service - in addition to the Java Cloud Service currently available, new capabilities to be introduced include Java Virtual Machine as a service which will give the ability to run any framework on top of standard JVM. This capability will give customers the ability to bring any server-side Java application to Oracle Cloud and benefit from the built-in deployment and manageability enhancements. 

2015 indeed marks an exciting time for the team!
