Hey Oracle on VMware folks!!!
Earlier, we had blogged about Oracle RAC on VMware Virtual SAN Hybrid which is VMware software-defined storage solution for hyper-converged infrastructure and is available at Oracle RAC on Hybrid VSAN
In this blog post, we would like give you a glimpse of the “Oracle 12c OLTP workloads on VMware All Flash Virtual SAN 6.2”.
As some of you may know, in VMware Virtual SAN 6.2, we introduced a suite of new features for data integrity and space efficiency including Checksum, Erasure Coding, Deduplication and Compression. Using these features we developed an architecture for deploying and running Oracle 12c OLTP and DSS workloads on VMware All Flash Virtual SAN 6.2.
Before going into some of the results, let’s take a look as to why it is compelling to deploy heavy IO Oracle workloads on a VMware Virtual SAN All Flash solution.
- Extreme Performance – Virtual SAN is built into the vSphere kernel which optimizes the I/O path to provide excellent performance.
- Built in Data Reduction Technologies – Deduplication, Compression and Erasure Coding reduces data footprint and lowers cost, both capex and opex, further lowering the TCO of the solution.
- Availability for Business Critical Applications – Minimizes downtime with features like vMotion, vSphere HA, Virtual SAN Stretched Clustering.
- Redundancy for Business Critical Applications – Provides high level of redundancy thereby avoiding single point of failures (SPOF) with features like Failure to Tolerate (FTT), Fault Domain
