Grid Computing Delivers Scalability, Agility and Availability
Grid computing enables groups of networked computers to be pooled and provisioned on demand to meet changing business needs. Instead of dedicated servers and storage for each application, grid computing enables multiple applications to share computing infrastructure, resulting in reduced costs and much greater flexibility, power efficiency, performance, scalability and availability, all at the same time.
Emulex LightPulse® Fibre Channel HBAs and iSCI/Fibre Channel over Ethernet CNAs work with the Oracle Grid computing model to enable server connectivity to storage arrays through the fabric. Emulex enterprise-class adapters provide the performance, management scalability, reliability and interoperability required for Grid computing.
Emulex and Oracle deliver interoperable solutions to enterprise data centers. Emulex LightPulse and OneConnect adapters are certified and fully supported with Oracle Enterprise Linux, and are supported as part of the Oracle Unbreakable Linux support program. Emulex device drivers are included with distributions of Oracle Enterprise Linux and Oracle VM, and are tested extensively to provide seamless interoperability with the entire storage ecosystem.
