This document provides the configuration details for deployment of Oracle 12cR2 or 18c Real Application Clusters database environment on Dell EMC PowerFlex rack with ESXi 6.5 running Linux® operating systems in a VM.
Dell EMC PowerFlex rack is a scale-out hyperconverged solution that delivers maximum flexibility, scalability, and performance for the enterprise data center. Its flexible architecture enables multi-OS and multi-hypervisor capabilities and flexibility to adapt as workloads change. Scalability comes from starting small and growing incrementally, but also growing compute and storage independently. PowerFlex rack also delivers stable and predictable performance for all workloads in the environment. It is an engineered system which is powered by Dell EMC PowerFlex software defined storage to be reliable and easy to deploy. In addition, the solution is ideal for server SAN, heterogeneous virtualized environments, and high-performance databases.
PowerFlex rack is a scale-out solution that enables you to add PowerFlex rack compute enclosures with various CPU, memory, and drive options. Dell EMC PowerFlex software-defined storage enables scaling from a base configuration to a large-scale deployment including up to 1024 systems contributing to storage, and 1024 systems consuming storage.
