ESDS recently announced the introduction of SLES 11 and Oracle Linux support on its intelligent eNlight Cloud platform in India. These two would be offered in addition to the range of operating system options already offered with eNlight like Linux CentOS, Ubuntu, Windows 2008 Standard and Windows 2008 Datacenter Edition.
SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) is a Linux-based operating system developed for servers, mainframes, and workstations while Oracle Linux, formerly known as Oracle Enterprise Linux, is a Linux distribution based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Customers opting for eNlight Cloud at ESDS can now choose SLES 11 and Oracle Linux with it to experience highly reliable, scalable and secure server operating systems that power the physical and virtual workloads.
According to the company, integration of eNlight Cloud with SLES 11 and Oracle Linux will help build a complete infrastructure and increase the capacity tenfold. Both are Enterprise Level operating systems and are generally preferred by medium/large scale enterprises. With Oracle Linux, clients will be able to install and use all the software or applications provided by Oracle.
Oracle Linux is among the best Linux distros for enterprise computing needs as it offers superior performance, faster speed, support for large and small systems, better security and improved uptime for applications. It is substantially faster, tracks mainline Linux closely and brings in latest innovations for users. Oracle is renowned for its Database and Application servers whereas SUSE is known for stability and security. Oracle Database and Applications work very well with Oracle Linux so, with its integration with eNlight Cloud, the company expects supreme benefits for users.
Oracle Linux and SUSE are known to be robust & stable but even these systems sometimes need higher processing powers to address database or performance concerns. These concerns generally arise due to 'Less Cores to Compute ratio' or 'Database hogging the server memory’. In such resource intensive scenarios, most operating systems may get a hit on performance or may fail completely and the only option to avoid this is an upgrade to a higher capacity server. Buying a high capacity server increases CAPEX as well as OPEX, however with eNlight Cloud, these issues are taken care of seamlessly as eNlight works on Pay-Per-Consume billing model wherein the client pays for resources actually being used.
SUSE Linux and Oracle Enterprise are widely used as base OS for SAP implementation. The R&D Team of ESDS is already testing SAP environment on eNlight and they are very sure about its success to provide highly secure SAP-as-a-Service or hosted model of SAP on eNlight public cloud. This will drastically reduce the CAPEX involved in having a SAP environment up and running for SMEs.
CEO & MD of ESDS Mr. Piyush Somani concluded, "With the support for SLES 11 and Oracle Linux on the intelligent eNlight Cloud platform, our customers now have the ability to host their systems / web applications on the highly secure SLES version and also host various Oracle solutions on Oracle Linux, the most suited operating system for Oracle applications. This addition also allows them to build Elastic Cloud infrastructure on Oracle platform in a few clicks ensuring complete privacy. Our company is at the forefront of Indian Cloud industry offering highly sought-after solutions.”
