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 Oracle Linux, 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 database cluster in this environment.
