Lower Costs and Complexity of Your Product Lifecycle Management
Oracle Agile Product Lifecycle Management has traditionally been deployed in a multi-tiered architecture, but IT managers are increasingly looking to consolidate for reduced cost and complexity. This paper describes how the Oracle Optimized Solution for Agile Product Lifecycle Management achieves these goals with a pretested environment that consolidates multiple tiers onto a single Sun Fire X4800 M2 server from Oracle using Oracle Solaris Containers as the virtualization technology. The solution was tested to validate the performance of the consolidated architecture and to verify the virtualized environment and its configurations. This paper includes sizing guidelines with recommended configurations for small, medium, and large installations along with test results and best practices for configuring the environment to optimize performance and reliability on Sun x86 servers from Oracle.
