Databases systems contain the most critical data for companies, so these complex systems remain in the datacenter. However, enterprises want solutions with cloud characteristics such as scalability, performance, consolidation, automation, centralized management, and protection. Figure 57 shows how each component discussed in this validation guide covers a key priority in engineering Ready Bundle for Oracle. Additional features such as OpenManage Essentials simplify and automate management of PowerEdge servers and Dell EMC infrastructure are not addressed in this guide and so are not shown in the figure.
Extensive testing of Ready Bundle for Oracle has stress-tested every component of the system to validate that this database platform delivers on value. From an owner or administrator perspective, management is simplified because Dell EMC delivers and supports the entire stack. This solution will work in every datacenter, but those IT organizations using VMware virtualization or Dell EMC infrastructure will find this a complementary solution that integrates quickly into the existing datacenter.
