Oracle has unveiled what it claims is the world's first integrated middleware machine, an appliance to run Java and non-Java applications using Oracle software.

Oracle said the new Exalogic Elastic Cloud is an integrated hardware and software system engineered, tested and tuned by Oracle to run Java and non-Java applications. Oracle says the hardware provides a complete cloud application infrastructure, consolidating Java and non-Java workloads.

"Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is a complete system of servers, network, storage, VM, operating system and middleware, all engineered to work together," said Oracle CEO Larry Ellison (pictured). "This delivers stunning results, including the fastest Java performance, elastic capacity on demand and a completely fault tolerant system."

Building on the success of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud uses 64-bit x86 processors, an InfiniBand-based I/O fabric and solid-state storage. Software wise, the product supports Oracle WebLogic Server, other enterprise Java Oracle middleware products and a choice of Oracle Solaris or Oracle Linux operating system software.

The product integrates with Oracle Database 11g, Oracle Real Application Clusters and the Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Oracle's enterprise software including E-Business Suite, Oracle's Siebel CRM, Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle's JD Edwards and Oracle's industry specific business applications will run on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud transparently, without needing any modifications, the company said.
