The system architecture for the Oracle snapshot use cases for this white paper consists of the following:
All nodes are connected to the access or Top-of-Rack (ToR) switches through 25 GbE networks.
PowerFlex CO nodes allow for optimized CPU licensing for Oracle. The nodes can be configured with the best CPU to match the customer’s Oracle licensing requirements.
The following figure contains an overview of the PowerFlex appliance configuration, but any configuration that follows the PowerFlex minimum configuration rules can use the snapshot capabilities described in this white paper.
