Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Oracle has announced the availability of its 10g application server for grid computing, first launched with great fanfare in September. Application Server 10g uses workload management techniques to share loads across large numbers of processors in a grid configuration.

The server is accompanied by software tools designed to simplify programming in Java 2EE, a goal shared by all the enthusiasts for Java as they seek to match the ease of use of Microsoft’s development products.

The 10g release of the core Oracle database was due this month but has been put back to January. This will feature a workload manager and Oracle’s Real Application Clustering technology for provisioning loads across massive systems. This will be managed by new Enterprise Manager 10g Grid Control software. Oracle will demonstrate the products running on 128 servers at its Oracle World conference in Tokyo, Japan this month.

Oracle said it plans a version of the application server based on the latest J2EE specification, version 1.4, during the next few months. For the current version, Java Edition is priced at $5,000 per CPU or $100 per named user; Standard Edition (with portal and business intelligence) is $10,000 per CPU or $200 per named user; and Enterprise Edition, which includes wireless support, is $20,000 per processor or $400 per named user.
