Customers running large enterprise databases require a cost-effective solution to manage their IT resources such as compute, network, and storage.
Oracle Linux KVM, an open source hypervisor, which is distributed as part of the Oracle Enterprise Linux kernel, offers a virtualization layer that when combined with Oracle Linux KVM CPU pinning, can become cost optimized for Oracle deployments. Oracle Linux Virtualization Manager provides a solution for managing different resources such as the compute, network, storage, and virtual machines, in enterprise-class virtualized environments.
This reference architecture guide explains the deployment of Oracle Linux KVM with PowerFlex. In addition, it provides an example of deploying a virtualized Oracle RAC database cluster in this environment.
