Delivering zero downtime applications, Oracle launches Communications Service Availability Machine

Telecom Lead India: Oracle has launched Oracle Communications
Service Availability Machine, a hardware and software solution to enable
network equipment providers to offer zero downtime applications — such as
IPTV, Policy Control, Charging, etc. — to telecom service providers.


Network equipment providers can leverage OracleCommunications
Service Availability Machine’s development environment and standardized
hardware and software infrastructure to efficiently create and deploy
highly-available applications to CSPs, improving time-to-revenue while reducing
project risk.


“With increased adoption of real-time and near-real time
applications — especially on smartphones and tablets, service availability is
a critical must-have requirement and business need in the communications industry.
It combines Oracle’s hardware and software leadership, and proven service
availability software to help NEPs bring service available applications to
market quickly, with minimal project risk, while helping ensure zero interruption
of the customer experience,” said Nigel Ball, vice president, NEP
solutions, Oracle Communications.


Oracle Communications Service Availability Machine helps enhance
customer experience and reduce customer churn.


According to a press release, the solution leverages
Service Availability (SA) Forum standards providing open application programming
interfaces (APIs) that ensure application portability to developers.


Oracle Communications Service Availability Machine
includes Oracle Communications Service Availability software — acquired
through Oracle’s acquisition of GoAhead Software in September 2011 – with
initial availability on Oracle’s Sun Netra 6000 and Oracle Linux.


The new hardware and software solution integrates
Oracle’s carrier-grade hardware leadership with GoAhead’s proven service
availability software and expertise. This new approach helps reduce project
risk and ensure predictability when creating next-generation applications and services.


“Today’s communications applications increasingly require
the highest possible degree of performance and availability with zero downtime.
Oracle Communications Service Availability Machine is squarely focused on this
growing market, and the simplicity and performance of this integrated solution
is likely to appeal to engineering managers and leaders with projects that
require service availability and have urgent time-to-market demands,” said
Lee Doyle, group vice president and general manager, network infrastructure and
security, IDC.
