Oracle, Mirantis to Bring Database-as-a-Service Powered by Oracle Multitenant to OpenStack-Based Private Clouds

Ahead of the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, British Columbia, Oracle has announced a collaboration with Mirantis to enable Oracle Solaris and Mirantis OpenStack users to accelerate application and database provisioning in private cloud hosting environments via Murano, the application project in the OpenStack ecosystem. 

oracle-cloudOracle OpenStack for Oracle Solaris would combine the advanced security, enterprise class reliability, and ease of administration of the Oracle Solaris operating system with the agility of OpenStack to create the premier, comprehensive cloud platform for running enterprise applications and Oracle Database.

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 secured, isolated environment in which to run applications.

The consolidated Container Databases represent a single environment for a cloud hosting provider to support, enabling economies of scale. In just a few clicks, cloud users and developers would be able to:

  • Securely provision Pluggable Databases on Oracle Solaris from OpenStack
  • Allow applications to securely access new and existing Pluggable Databases from within OpenStack
  • Enable OpenStack applications to take advantage of the advanced security, performance and efficiency of Software in Silicon technology built into Oracle’s upcoming systems based on SPARC M7 processors running Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Solaris.

mirantis-openstack-cloudOracle and Mirantis will demonstrate the technology at the OpenStack Summit in Vancouver, BC, May 18-22 in booths P9 and P7. Availability is slated in Q2 CY 2015.

“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,” said Markus Flierl, vice president, Oracle Solaris. “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.”
