Using Oracle VM for SPARC (OVM SPARC) the T4-4 compute nodes can be partitioned into three types of partitions. One is a Database Domain that is used to run S11 and Oracle 11gR2. There can be only one DB Domain per T4-4. A DB Domain does not have to include all processors in a T4-4 node. There is a maximum of 3 domains on a T4-4 node that has a DB domain. DB Domains will access the Exadata storage cells. Only DB Domains running Oracle 11gR2 can use the Exadata storage cells. General Purpose (GP) domains can run S10 or S11 and has their name implies are used to run general-purpose applications such as Oracle Ebiz, Siebel, PSFT or even third-party applications. GP Domains will use the ZFS Storage appliance for its disk requirements. GP domains can also access legacy SAN’s. Exalogic domains are domains that run the Exalogic Elastic Cloud software. Exalogic domains will use the ZFSSA for storage. Up to 4 domains can be deployed on any T4-4 nodes but since only one DB Domain is possible on a T4-4 node the other three domains would have to be GP Domains or Exalogic Domains.This slide shows all three types of domains indicating how to virtualize/partition an SSC T4-4. It also shows how it is possible to consolidate app tier and db tier on a single SSC T4-4. It shows that all four T4-4 nodes are used for database domains and are clustered using RAC. These domains will have exclusive access to the 6 Exadata Storage nodes. The other domains nodes are partitioned into 3 GP domains and 1 exalogic domain. Note that only GP domains can run S10. If a customer wants a T4-4 node to run just an S10 GP Domain then they still need to set up a small S11 control domain as it is not allowed to have a node running just S10.Deploying DB’s in containers in DB Domains is not supported.Lastly, live migration is not supported on SSC T4-4.“Patching is so easy we that we’ve even made the systems automatically update every week”version 4

17 Solaris and Xsigo High Performance End-to-End Cloud Solution Storage FinanceZone AHRZone BSalesZone CStorageComputeSalesDatasetEthernetOnly Solaris and Oracle Linux delivers this featureThe Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) distributed database product includes the Lock Management System (LMS), a user-level distributed lock protocol which mediates requests for database blocks between processes on the nodes of a database cluster. Fulfilling a request requires traversing and copying data across the user/kernel boundary on the requesting and serving nodes, even for the significant number of requests for blocks with uncontended locks.We have created a "kernel accelerator" (KA), which filters database block requests destined for LMS processes and directly grants requests for blocks with uncontended locks, thereby eliminating user-kernel context switches, the associated data copying, and LMS application-level processing for those requests.The KA exports shared memory in which the LMS locking daemon places its lock table. The KA intercepts DBMS block requests over the RDSv3 communications protocol used between cluster nodes and calls into a DBMS-provided kernel accelerator run-time (KA RT) module, which consults the shared-memory lock table. If the lock is available, the KA replies from the kernel, granting the request directly to the requesting node; if the lock is not available, the KA passes the request up to the LMS user process, which handles the request in the same fashion as when no KA is present.This not only speeds up the process of granting locks, but it also frees up CPU cycles, thus allowing for better throughput in the order of 30-40% depending on the workload.HRDatasetXsigo Fabric DirectorFinanceDatasetFCNetwork

28 Engineered Together Tested Together Certified Together Deployed TogetherUpgraded TogetherManaged TogetherSlide Transition: When we say that Oracle hardware and software is engineered to work together, this refers to our unique ability to offer customers a complete hardware and software stack -- from applications through middleware and databases, and all the way down into servers and storage – that is integrated throughout.Oracle tests everything within a stack layer together–between different applications, between different middleware suites, between various database products, and so on. Oracle also tests everything across stack layers, from applications all the way down to the servers and storage.Oracle certifies the complete stack so that customers know which particular versions of software are designed to work together. For example, every major application that Oracle delivers, including Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft Enterprise, JD Edwards and Siebel CRM is certified with Oracle Fusion Middleware.Oracle packages the different technologies into standardized solutions, which customers can then deploy together.These complete solutions are designed to be upgraded effectively and efficiently together. And, the entire stack can be managed together, supported together and so on.Supported Together

Encrypting data in applications, however, requires costly and complex code changes, often with disastrous performance consequences. Fortunately these pitfalls can be avoided.Oracle Advanced Security TDE provides the ability to encrypt sensitive application data on storage media completely transparent to the application itself. TDE addresses encryption requirements associated with public and private privacy and security mandates such as PCI and California SB1386.Oracle's Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) feature simplifies the encryption of data within datafiles, preventing unauthorized access to it from the operating system. Tablespace encryption, allows encryption of the entire contents of a tablespace.Data is transparently encrypted when written to disk and transparently decrypted after an application user has successfully authenticated and passed all authorization checks. Authorization checks include verifying the user has the necessary select and update privileges on the application table and checking Database Vault, Label Security and Virtual Private Database enforcement policies.Oracle's SPARC T4 processor with hardware cryptography acceleration can greatly improve performance over software implementations. This should greatly expand the use of TDE for many customers.Performance on Oracle TDE (Transparent Data Encryption)SPARC T4 44% faster secure queries than x86 Westmere (AES/NI)Combination of fast query processing and TDETests 8 different queries on 2-socket serversConsistent SPARC T4 query time 128-bit to 256-bit ciphersOracle Advanced Security TDE column encryption was introduced in Oracle Database 10g Release 2, enabling encryption of application table columns, containing credit card or social security numbers. Oracle Advanced Security TDE tablespace encryption and support for hardware security modules (HSM) were introduced with Oracle Database 11gR1.Hardware Security Module (HSM) - A device used to secure keys and perform cryptographic operations. These devices can be standalone network based appliances or plug-able PCI cards. In the context of TDE, these devices can create and store the TDE master key.Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) – A symmetric cipher algorithm defined in the Federal Information Processing (FIPS) standard no AES provides 3 approved key lengths: 256, 192, and 128 bits.PKCS#11 – A standard developed by RSA for communicating with cryptographic devices.Transparent Data Encryption is one of the three components of the Oracle Advanced Security option for Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition; it provides transparent encryption of stored data to support your compliance efforts. Applications do not have to be modified and will continue to work seamlessly as before. Data is automatically encrypted when it is written to disk and automatically decrypted when accessed by the application. Key management is built-in, eliminating the complex task of creating, managing and securing encryption keys.
