Wondering about on-prem or cloud deployment of Oracle? How about having both options which are available with the latest Intel Cascade Lake processors!!
Hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, no cloud. In today’s business, is still not as easy to decide which to implement for your specific use case. When thinking of today’s top business priorities, you may have a solution for one use case that lacks in some respects in others, namely how to:
Keep their business up and running, securely
Balance IT supply (resources and skills) with IT demand
Increase agility to quickly respond to new business requirements
To answer these problems, Hitachi Vantara has recently released updated options that enables you to deploy the appropriate solution catering to your specific use case. One is
Hitachi Unified Compute Platform CI for
Oracle XaaS Cloud Platform. The other is
Hitachi Unified Compute Platform CI for
Oracle Composable Platform.
Oracle XaaS Cloud Platform is fast, agile, and aims to be a more efficient use of resources. Cloud deployment aims for IT transformation. You want a fast and flexible journey to reduce cost, quickly scale up or down, and—most importantly—be easy and intuitive. This solution integrates many innovative technologies from Hitachi Vantara and Oracle. To create an Oracle database cloud service, this environment uses Hitachi Unified Compute Platform CI with Oracle Virtual Machine and Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Cloud Control 13c. It provides a base of the following to migrate to Oracle database cloud service:
Quick database deployment in the cloud
Validation of virtual machine configurations
Central monitoring of Hitachi storage and servers, virtual machines, database, and applications
Oracle Composable platform is engineered, pre-configured, pre-tested, and qualified to provide predictable performance and the highest reliability in demanding, dynamic Oracle environments. This solution is validated to ensure consistent, predictable results. It offers integrated computing options, simplified management and improved utilization that cut total cost of ownership.
Hitachi Unified Compute Platform CI for Oracle XaaS Cloud Platform and Composable Platform has been tested with Intel Cascade Lake Processors. The environment had these components:
One Hitachi Advanced Server DS220 using Cascade Lake processors from Intel
Two Brocade G620 switches
One Cisco Nexus 3048TP switch
One Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G900 (VSP)
This is the list of key lab verification tests performed for Oracle Composable Platform:
Server BIOS and BMC code upgrade from previous GA code level for Hitachi Advanced Server DS220 with Cascade
Lake processors from Intel in the CPUs
SAN boot configuration and operating system installation with the operating system auto installer developed by Converged Solutions Engineering
Linux native multipathing (Device Mapper) and udev configuration for Oracle ASM
Oracle 12cR2 Grid Infrastructure and Database binaries installation and configuration
Database creation with DBCA utility
Database load tests with Oracle SQL commands to verify multipathing of I/O stack
