Business and agreements have their own importance in business world. We all know that Mark Hurd left HP and joined Oracle but now what we are listening that Oracle and HP may be deciding to do something with the help of each other. On September 20, 2010, HP announced integrated private cloud solutions customized for Oracle applications that significantly shorten and simplify the deployment process. In our opinion, this is a good signal towards the business of both the companies.
According to Mike Crowsen who is the Vice President of Oracle Alliance, HP:
To ensure the best service delivery across an organization, clients need applications and infrastructure to be tightly integrated and IT systems to be tuned to the unique demands of each application environment. No other vendor has integrated infrastructure for Oracle applications to the extent HP has with its Private Cloud Solutions for Oracle Applications, enabling clients to achieve levels of deployment speed, simplicity and flexibility never before possible.
Clients’ application service delivery should be streamlined and simplified, and services delivered more efficiently and securely. HP Converged Infrastructure – in particular the new HP Private Cloud Solutions for Oracle Applications – delivers an open, common architecture, managed in a common way that can be optimized for the needs of any application, in any environment.
According to HP:
HP Private Cloud Solutions for Oracle Applications are specifically engineered to support complex, multi-tiered environments, so clients can deploy Oracle applications in hours. The HP hardware and software offerings ship together from HP Factory Express pre-optimized for PeopleSoft Enterprise, Oracle E-Business Suite and Oracle Fusion Middleware. Based on HP Converged Infrastructure, the turnkey solutions are easy to buy and install, eliminating guesswork, weeks of configuration time, and minimizing architectural design effort. The new HP Private Cloud Solutions for Oracle Applications are based on HP BladeSystem Matrix and enhanced with HP Cloud Service Automation software and HP StorageWorks data services. The solutions offer one-touch application provisioning as well as a self-service portal for delivering Oracle application services on-demand.
HP also said that:
The solutions will be available worldwide from HP and its channel partner network. HP Private Cloud Solution for PeopleSoft is planned to be available in October and the Oracle e-Business Suite and Oracle Fusion Infrastructure solutions is planned to be available by the end of the year. For under $700,000, the PeopleSoft solution provides enterprise businesses with the complete HP BladeSystem Matrix infrastructure, integrated management, cloud service framework, factory integration and on-site startup services. For an additional cost, clients can engage HP Consulting Services based on individual client requirements. Operating systems and Oracle software are purchased separately.
