Hitachi Unified Compute Platform 6000 for Oracle Real Application Cluster with SMP Server Blades and Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1500

Blog Post created by Prabin Bhandari Employee on Sep 18, 2017

Use Hitachi unified Compute Platform (UCP) 6000 for Oracle Real Application Cluster with two two-way symmetrical multi-processing (SMP) nodes and G1500 storage that provide high performance, high availability and highly scalable converged solution for Oracle databases.

 

This solution uses 4 Hitachi CB2500 520X B3 full width blades for two 2-way SMP nodes with 88 CPU cores per SMP node, a single controller Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1500 with 48x 1.6 TB FMDs, two Brocade G620 Fibre Channel switches and 4 16Gb/s HBAs with 8 ports on each SMP node.

 

Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1500 is flash-optimized virtual storage platforms that deliver up to 4M IOPS of performance and offer the industry's only 100% data-availability guarantee. Hitachi Virtual Storage Platform G1500 uses virtual storage directors (VSDs) that are shared across the cache, front-end directors (FEDs), and back-end directors (BEDs), providing immediate processing power without wait time of interruption to maximize I/O
throughput.

 

The storage systems provide a highly granular upgrade path, allowing the addition of drives to the drive chassis and components such as FEDs to the controller chassis as storage and processing needs increase. Hitachi Storage Virtualization Operating System (SVOS) provides storage virtualization, high availability, superior performance, and advanced data protection for all Virtual Storage Platform. This proven, mature software provides common features to consolidate assets, reclaim space, extend life, and reduce migration effort.
