Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud machine is an integrated hardware and software system designed to provide a complete platform for a wide range of application types and widely varied workloads. Exalogic is intended for large-scale, performance-sensitive, mission-critical application deployments. It combines Oracle's industry-standard Fusion Middleware software and industry-standard hardware to enable a high degree of isolation between concurrently deployed applications, which have varied security, reliability, and performance requirements. Exalogic enables customers to develop a single environment that can support end-to-end consolidation of their entire applications portfolio.
Exalogic is designed to fully leverage an internal InfiniBand fabric that connects all of the processing, storage, memory and external network interfaces within an Exalogic machine to form a single, large computing device. Each Exalogic machine is connected to the customer's data center networks via 10 GbE (traffic) and GbE (management) interfaces.
