Oracle has released Tuxedo 11g, the application server for C/C++, COBOL and dynamic languages which is optimised to run on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud X2-2.
Oracle Tuxedo includes Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for IMS 11g, a new product within the Oracle Tuxedo family, that helps customers to reduce IT costs, increase business agility and reduce risk by accelerating and simplifying the migration of IBM mainframe IMS applications to open systems.
In addition, the release delivers a scale out offering for high volume, low latency mission critical applications that require the highest qualities of service and also features enhancements to Oracle Tuxedo Application Rehosting Workbench 11g and Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch 11g.
The enhanced Oracle Tuxedo products provides customers with improved usability, faster migrations, greater availability, enhanced monitoring and control capabilities and integration with Oracle Berkeley DB and COBOL-IT compiler, said the company.
With the new release of Oracle Tuxedo 11g customers can: achieve up to 7x performance gains and improved scalability by leveraging the optimised integration between Oracle Tuxedo 11g and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and customers benefit from up to a 7x improvement in messaging performance for existing applications, elastic scalability to accommodate load fluctuations, simplified provisioning and integrated management delivered by a cloud environment.
The combination of Oracle Tuxedo 11g on Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud with Oracle Exadata Database Machine can deliver up to a 5x improvement in Oracle Database 11g access throughput and customers can leverage the performance and scalability of Oracle Tuxedo 11g and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud to develop next-generation high-throughput, low-latency applications.
In addition, customers can leverage Oracle Virtual Assembly Builder to simplify the deployment of Oracle Tuxedo 11g applications in a virtual environment.
With the introduction of Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for IMS customers can reportedly reduce IT costs, improve availability and resilience, reduce risk and improve competitiveness.
Enhanced release of Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for CICS and Batch and Oracle Tuxedo Application Rehosting Workbench provide customers with ease-of-use and migration accelerators, migration options and monitoring enhancements.
Oracle Development vice-president Frank Xiong said with the new release of Oracle Tuxedo 11g and the addition of Oracle Tuxedo Application Runtime for IMS 11g, Oracle has further simplified the process by optimizing integration with Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and simplifying the migration and modernization of IBM mainframe IMS applications.
