An End-to-End Perspective on Oracle
The shared focus on SPARC technology is just one aspect of the Fujitsu and Oracle
relationship. Over the course of two decades, the companies have worked together on
everything from innovative applications and middleware solutions to service-oriented
architectures, data management, business-critical computing and grid computing.
Fujitsu’s strength in the Oracle arena was recently highlighted in an independent report.
Fujitsu was positioned in the Leaders category of The Forrester Wave™: Oracle Services
Providers, Q2 2011 report. The Leaders category is the top-ranking section of the report.
The report stated that “Fujitsu invests substantially in co-development and innovation
related to Oracle and is one of the leading partners in the Fusion applications space.”
As a global IT company, Fujitsu provides end-to-end technology, services and expertise
for Oracle users, from consulting to design, build, implement and maintain activities.
• Comprehensive IT, business and infrastructure services, with a number
of Oracle-specific managed and professional services covering applications, infrastructure and business imperatives such as operational excellence and customer experience.
Fujitsu has experience and expertise with Oracle E-Business Suite; Oracle’s Siebel,
PeopleSoft, and JD Edwards applications; and Oracle industry solutions as well as
Oracle Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database.
• A range of data center technologies, which focus on the creation and delivery of
“Dynamic Infrastructures” supporting Oracle applications and the Oracle technology stack.
Dynamic Infrastructures combine products, solutions and services that enable companies to
assign IT resources dynamically to services as required, and to choose sourcing models that
best fit their businesses, bringing IT flexibility and efficiency to the next level.
Fujitsu has some 3,500 Oracle professionals working in more than 20 countries—and
the depth of their knowledge is well-documented by Oracle itself. For example, Fujitsu,
an Oracle Platinum Partner, was the first global partner to earn the Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) Specialized status for SOA. To earn an OPN specialization, an organization
has to meet a stringent set of requirements in a certain area. Overall, Fujitsu has 25
OPN specializations in Oracle-related hardware, software and industries—and that
number is growing.
an increased clock speed of up to 3.0
GHz, and a doubling of the size of
the L2 cache up to 12MB. This type
of improvement is actually part of
Fujitsu’s long term strategy. Companies using SPARC Enterprise servers
have always benefited from regular
increases in performance because
Fujitsu is constantly improving its CPU
and memory architecture. Fujitsu regularly releases processors that deliver
significant performance increases by
adding cores, introducing ever more
sophisticated threading mechanisms,
and extending CPU cache capacity.
In addition to drawing on the
power of the new processor, the
SPARC hardware and Oracle Solaris
software have been jointly engineered
to optimize Oracle’s software in its
performance and functionality. As a
result, organizations running Oracle
Enterprise Manager Ops Center 11g
can take advantage of new SPARC
Enterprise M-Series-specific management capabilities such as creating and
provisioning Dynamic Domains. The
recent improvements to Oracle Enterprise Manager Ops Center means that
SPARC Enterprise M-Series customers
can use the same software to manage
the entire integrated stack, from applications to the servers.
To help data centers meet the
challenges of both today and to-morrow, Fujitsu and Oracle offer a
broad range of no-cost virtualization
technologies. These can be mixed
and matched in order to support a
company’s specific needs for business continuity, agility and improved
business operation, for every application requirement, all in the same box.
For example, an organization can
efficiently run databases in Dynamic
Domains in an SPARC Enterprise
M-Series server and the applications
in Oracle Solaris Containers in
other Dynamic Domains in that same
SPARC Enterprise M-Series server.
SPARC Enterprise M-Series virtualization technologies provide no-cost,
