Virtualizing the Oracle Database with VMware ESX 3.5 and Beyond
this talk to learn about best practices for virtualizing Oracle
databases. Specifically, we outline the characteristics of typical
Oracle workloads, and give a brief primer on performance optimization
for virtualized systems. We then combine these two topics by showing
how to tune a database for virtualization, and what features of ESX can
help provide maximum value once you’ve virtualized your Oracle
database. We also highlight some of the changes coming in future
versions of VMware Infrastructure, and how they will affect database
virtualization techniques.
