OOW, Larry Elison anounce “Cloud in a box” or “Exalogic Elastic Cloud”

This is a great announcement from Larry Elison in his Oracle OpenWorld 2010 Opening Keynote about “Cloud in a Box” and his definition of Cloud Computing.

Ellison’s description of cloud computing led up to his big announcement: the Exalogic Elastic Cloud platform, a combination of hardware and software or “cloud in a box.” It has a total of 360 cores in the box, each interconnected with each other and to the storage device.  He also stated that there are no single points of failure in this box and that it “scales symmetrically in a balanced way.”  He had one of thse standing behind him as he spoke and it was a big box.
