Oracle CEO Larry Ellison has announced a new system that allows enterprises to run their own cloud in a self-contained system. The new system is known as Oracle Exalogic.

Oracle Chairman and CEO Larry Ellison announced the new system at the Oracle OpenWorld 2010 event. Hardware and software is engineered to work together to run all of your applications in the new system.

The Exalogic box features 30 servers with 360 cores along with networking and storage space. The Exalogic has Oracle’s virtual machine technology built in and has the two guest operating systems Linux and Solaris.

“Oracle agrees with,” Ellison said. “We believe it [the cloud] is a platform?a standards-based application development and execution platform. It includes hardware and software. It is virtual and elastic, and it runs a variety of apps,” stated Ellison during his keynote.
