This is a just a quick blog post to direct readers to the best Oracle-related paper detailing the value EMC XtremIO brings to Oracle Database use cases. I’ve been looking forward to the availability of this paper for quite some time as I supported (minimally, really) the EMC Global Solutions Engineering group in this effort. They really did a great job with this testing! I highly recommend this paper for readers who are interested in:
- Leveraging immediate, space efficient, zero overhead storage snapshots for productivity
- All-Flash Array performance
- Database workload consolidation
Click the following link to access the whitepaper: click here. Abstract:
This white paper describes the deployment of the XtremIO® all-flash array with Oracle RAC 11g and 12c databases in both physical and virtual environments. It describes optimal performance while scaling up in a physical environment, the effect of adding multiple virtualized database environments, and the impact of using XtremIO Compression with Oracle Advanced Compression. The white paper also demonstrates the physical space efficiency and low performance impact of XtremIO snapshots.
