XtremIO Oracle Database Consolidation with Sam Lucido: When the EMC Global Solutions Team set out to demonstrate the Oracle Database consolidation capabilities of XtremIO, they had three primary goals.
- Simplify database consolidation – consolidate mixed-workload, test/dev with performance at scale.
- Maximize DBA Productivity – simplify provisioning, reduce downtime and accelerate testing
- Gain greater business insight – Run faster, more queries, more users, more value to business.
The resulting whitepaper, Oracle Database Consolidation with XtremIO provides details on the configuration, architecture and software featured leveraged in the testing, including: Inline Data Reduction, Thin Provisioning, inline data compression and snapshots. I had the opportunity to talk to Sam Lucido about the results of the whitepaper, XtremIO Oracle, at EMC World 2015. Sam is a fellow EMC Elect Member, and I spotted him hanging out in the EMC Elect lounge and grabbed my camera. Don’t forget to check out the DBA Society www.emc.com/DBASociety.
