Elasticsearch is a Cloud engine for PeopleSoft

Oracle has not released PeopleSoft Elasticsearch yet but you should look at options to consume this as a service in the Cloud.

astic can propose this as part of it's Elastic Cloud offer, but also Cloud services like can do so.

The great value in this is that you can use a high available Cluster without any knowledge about the technology and just consume this as a service.

Definitely cloud is an engine for PeopleSoft.

@OOW16 PeopleSoft and the Oracle Cloud Advantage

It's now been 10 month Oracle delivered PeopleSoft Cloud Architecture.
The first version was clearly oriented on Linux and Oracle database (db on Linux) which matches the Oracle Cloud ecosystem.

The next big step will add PeopleSoft Cloud Manager to model your Infrastructure and deploy in Oracle Cloud.

Though Oracle announced Deployment Packages (DPK) on  all platforms (IBM Power, HP-UX, Solaris ...) in the next PeopleTools 8.56 (in 2017) this does not leave big room for other strategies unless competitors delivers:
  - tools to deploy PeopleSoft on other hardware IBM Power, HP-UX ...
  - build Cloud offer on IBM Power or HP-UX ...

This is clearly not a direction to look at, and we should better concentrate on the battle between Azure, AWS and Oracle Cloud.

Elasticsearch to replace Oracle SES

Oracle SES extended PeopleSoft search for several years but proved to be complicated to implement and with some limitations (indexing required frequently etc ...)
We are now waiting for Elasticsearch to be delivered in PeopleTools 8.56 and backported to 8.55.

To ease the deployment, Oracle has included a feature where you can switch to Elastic without stopping PeopleSoft.

You can configure several search sources with a priority. Once decommissioning SES, you will transparently switch to Elastic !

PeopleSoft Cloud Manager and PeopleTools 8.56 @OOW2016

The 2 more interesting @OOW2016 are definitely PeopleSoft Cloud Manager and PeopleTools 8.56 They were presented at Oracle Open World but we don't have any schedule yet.
Let's assume the plans are:
  - PeopleSoft Cloud Manager in December 2016
  - PeopleTools 8.56 in February 2017
