Build your private cloud backbone for Oracle with Matrix

Authored by Kevin Lyons & Kristie Popp


At OOW this week Kevin Lyons of HP’s Solutions and Strategic Alliances organization at HP explained to customers how HP BladeSystem Matrix puts customers on the task track to a private cloud for Oracle. Kevin explained how Matrix includes core components needed for implementing a cloud; a mechanism for defining and controlling shared IT resource pools;  a design tool and service catalog for publishing service definitions; and a self-service portal for end users to requisition IT services.


To help customers start developing service definitions of their own, HP is providing tool kits for customers to leverage in developing ISV specific services. We call these tool kits Cloud Maps to express their value as a guide to defining and implementing private cloud functionality.

The HP Alliance team has developed several Oracle related Cloud Maps that can be downloaded from

  • Oracle Real Application Clusters
  • Single instance database
  • PeopleSoft
  • Oracle Fusion Middleware


Please see the video by Jake Ludington filmed at Oracle Open World 2010 with Kevin Lyons on the HP Matrix:
