5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Overview Guide for Exalogic 2 Oct 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
The authors of this book have done a magnificent job of providing both an end-to-end overview of the architecture, features & capabilities of Exalogic - as well as a rather detailed "deeper-dive" into many of the basic administrative tasks that need to be performed as one learns to start leveraging this machine. In addition, this book provides a nice overview of the various Oracle software products that have now been enhanced with various optimizations to take advantage of the Exalogic machine. Probably the best aspect of having this book is that it truly can be used as an ongoing "reference". This is due in large part to the way in which the material has been organized: Part I containing the overview and concepts, and Part II containing the more detailed administration tasks. I highly recommend this book for anyone desiring to learn more about Exalogic, as well as anyone that has purchased (or is considering a purchase of) the Exalogic machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive and useful 27 Dec 2012
By sami - Published on
Ive been skimming through this book for a few weeks now, but recently had time to read it cover to cover. I found it to be well organized and easy to read. My background is on the software side, but this book gave me a solid overview as well as a good technical insight into the 'engineered system' strategy Oracle is pursuing with 'Exa', particularly with the middle-tier focus of Exalogic.

I highly recommend this book as a precursor for anyone attempting to get an end-to-end grasp of Oracle's WebLogic-on-Exalogic stack of components. Also, this book is a great reference for developers like me who need to quickly figure out which middleware components provide which capabilities within WebLogic Suite.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Exalogic introduction 22 Oct 2012
By M.A.Johnson - Published on
Although I consider myself a "power-user" of the Oracle Engineered Systems (Exadata, Exalogic, Big Data Appliance, etc), I was still learning new things about the Exalogic in every chapter. This book is not intended as a deep technical manual (I think one reviewer was yearning for more practical guidance, but that is not the purpose). Instead this book is an excellent introduction to what makes Exalogic different from other 'converged architecture' solutions and how it can be leveraged in the data center. That is the target audience--people looking for information on the systems that are enabling the cloud and how they fit with existing data centers and applications.

As was pointed out, the information in some sections of this book can be found in other manuals and online destinations, but busy professionals who don't have time to hunt for these "bits and pieces" will appreciate the logical layout and clear discussion of themes. The prose is clear enough for readers who may only be moderately technical, but has enough meat to inform and guide even demanding architects. In fact, by focusing at the higher levels of what makes Exalogic a compelling platform, they authors were able to keep this handbook relevant even through the most recent updates to Exalogic (EECS 2.x+ and Exalogic x3).

In summary, I would recommend this to anyone interested in Oracle's newest technology and strategic direction for enterprise applications. No matter what platform you are currently on or what your future plans are (cloud anyone?), this book is an easy introduction to an important change in technology that promises substantially lower costs and better performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Intro to Exalogic Cloud Deployment 31 Aug 2012
By Harry J. Foxwell, PhD - Published on
The well-known characteristics and tiers of cloud computing have spawned myriad implementations by a host of vendors and system integrators. One of these, Oracle's Exalogic Elastic Cloud, part of Oracle's family of Engineered Systems, is a key component of Oracle's public and private cloud computing solutions, providing critical PaaS (Platform as a Service) features for cloud developers. These developers need guidance to take advantage of Exalogic's extensive capabilities, and the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud Handbook, written by three highly experienced Oracle technologists, provides that guidance.

Part One of the book covers Exalogic's hardware and software components, and includes a very useful chapter on deployment examples, describing best practices for scalabiity, availability, backup and recovery, and multi-tenant security, including integration with other Oracle Engineered Systems and products such as Exadata and storage subsystems.

Part Two is a thorough guide to Exalogic installation features, configuration and monitoring, packaged application software management, and scalable application development.

The book also provides an extensive list of online resources, including pointers to Web sites, whitepapers, instructional videos, and other Oracle documentation.

So, if you're planning to implement Exalogic as part of your cloud infrastructure, or are considering such, you'll find lots of sage advice and best practices in this handbook.
