Bringing DBaaS Powered by Oracle Multitenant to OpenStack-Based Private Clouds

Oracle is collaborating with Mirantis to enable Oracle Solaris and Mirantis OpenStack users to accelerate application and database provisioning in private cloud environments via Murano, the application project in the OpenStack ecosystem.

This effort brings Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant deployed on Oracle Solaris to Murano—the first Oracle cloud-ready products to be available in the catalog. The goal with the Oracle OpenStack for Oracle Solaris offering is to provide a comprehensive cloud platform for running enterprise applications and Oracle Database.

Mirantis is a pure-play OpenStack company, delivering software, services, training, and support for running OpenStack.

“We are excited to announce our work with Mirantis to make it even simpler to combine the deep integration of Oracle Solaris, Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant with OpenStack. It lets customers take advantage of the security of Oracle Solaris and the power of Software in Silicon technology, built into Oracle’s upcoming SPARC M7 processor-based systems, in their private OpenStack clouds,” said Markus Flierl, vice president, Oracle Solaris.

“Oracle databases are critical for many enterprises,” said Mirantis CEO Adrian Ionel. “The integration between Oracle Database 12c, Oracle Solaris and Mirantis OpenStack in the upcoming Mirantis OpenStack 6.1 release will allow those customers to quickly deploy Oracle Database applications with a few clicks.”

Oracle Multitenant, introduced with Oracle Database 12c, allows multiple pluggable databases to be supported within a single multitenant container Database. Each pluggable database provides a secure, isolated environment in which to run applications. The consolidated container databases represent a single environment for a cloud provider to support, enabling tremendous economies of scale.

According to Oracle, OpenStack for Oracle Solaris will enable customers to provision pluggable databases on Oracle Solaris from OpenStack; have their applications to access new and existing pluggable databases from within OpenStack; and will also enable OpenStack applications to take advantage of the security, performance and efficiency built into Oracle’s upcoming systems based on SPARC M7 processors running Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Solaris.
