Customers from a wide range of industries across the globe worked directly with Oracle to test and volunteer strategic feedback on Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 2 and its grid control capabilities (Oracle Grid Control), including Dell Inc., Ohio Savings Bank, and Talk America, among others.

Dell Streamlines IT Systems Manageability

Dell is a trusted and diversified information-technology supplier and partner and sells a comprehensive portfolio of products and services directly to customers worldwide. Dell uses Oracle Grid Control to centrally manage Dell server and Oracle 10g software-powered grid computing environments to achieve streamlined infrastructure management.

"Oracle Grid Control enables Dell IT database management to proactively manage our database environment on a global scale. There are many new features in Release 2 that will directly and positively impact our ability to manage a rapidly growing global environment," said Logan McLeod, an IT architect at Dell Inc. "For example, the integration of Dell's OpenManage instrumentation into Release 2 provides a holistic view into the health of our database servers without ever leaving the Oracle Grid Control console. This level of integration is critical for Dell IT to manage our enterprise efficiently."

Ohio Savings Bank Eases Administrative Workload with Oracle

Founded in 1889, Ohio Savings Bank has grown from a savings and loan with a single branch office in Cleveland and $20,000 in assets to one of the nation's largest mortgage lenders. In 2004, Ohio Savings was grappling with the effects of a growing business that was stressing its IT infrastructure. In 2004, the bank decided to take its clustered Oracle9i Database systems one step further by adopting a grid computing architecture. Not only has the move to a grid computing environment improved IT utilization and performance, but the use of Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g has significantly reduced the routine database administration tasks, manual intervention, and the number of recovery operations previously undertaken. Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 2, together with the database manageability features such as memory and performance management, has helped Ohio Savings Bank database administrators make effective database performance tuning decisions.

"Enhancements in Release 2 such as improved performance monitoring, new topology visualization, and configuration monitoring, are substantial enough for us to use the product to manage and monitor the overall health of our clustered Oracle Database systems," said Tony Miller, Manager, Enterprise Information Management, Ohio Savings Bank.

Talk America Takes Advantage of Oracle Manageability Capabilities

Talk America , a provider of phone service and high speed Internet access, has deployed an grid computing infrastructure with Oracle 10g software at its core. A key to the success of their platform is the reduced costs and time spent administering and monitoring its database and middleware systems through the use of Oracle Grid Control. They have achieved advanced application and service level monitoring, performance management and provisioning for Oracle environments with Oracle Grid Control.

"Release 2 has a lot of new enhancements and features," said Larry Grant, vice president of Enterprise Computing, Talk America. "Talk America's architecture has been moving heavily towards a service oriented architecture. We needed tools which provide us insight into the behavior of these services and help us identify potential problems early before they escalate into serious issues. An exciting new feature in Release 2 is the 'services dashboard' feature. This will greatly improve our visibility in the performance and service level agreements of our Web services. Having a single view gives us a quick glance on the status of each of these processes. In addition, the reporting functionality lets us keep our CIO abreast of the overall health of the systems and helps us better manage resources throughout the grid."

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
