Hitachi Cloud Foundation for Oracle Database

Blog Post created by Jigisha Pathak Employee on Apr 13, 2017

Use Hitachi Cloud Foundation for Oracle Database to provide reliability, high availability, scalability, and performance while processing small to large Oracle workloads. This reference architecture is a validated cloud solution for Oracle Database 12c running on Oracle VM 3.4.1, with virtual machine using Oracle Linux Operating System 7.2.


Cloud 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 Data Systems and from Oracle. To create a Oracle database cloud service, this environment uses Hitachi Unified Compute Platform (UCP) with Oracle Virtual Machine and Oracle Enterprise Manager (OEM) Cloud Control 13c. Unified Compute Platform has Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G800 (VSP G800) and Hitachi Compute Blade 2500 (CB 2500) for storage and computing resources.


It provides a base of the following to migrate to Oracle database cloud service:

  • Quick database deployment in cloud
  • Validation of virtual machine configurations
  • Central monitoring of Hitachi storage and servers, virtual machines, database, and applications


This solution provides flexibility to slice and dice storage and compute resources based on unique requirements. Deploy small databases as well as huge databases, as long as there are resources available. As a cloud solution, this environment features simple provisioning, chargeback/showback, and centralized user interface using Oracle Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.
