15 15© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. VMotion Testing with Oracle 11g Database  Impact of VMotion migration on user transactions  ESX server CPU utilization  Documented migration steps  Under load, CPU usage increased on the primary ESX server during migration

16 16© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. VMware HA Testing with Oracle 11g  Physical server failure— automatic failover  Automated Oracle database startup and availability  Documented recovery steps  Time from init 0 command to database startup—4 minutes 20 seconds  Time from ESX server shutdown to Oracle database startup—2 minutes

17 17© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. EMC Symmetrix VMAX Virtual LUN Technology  LUN migration wizard simplifies the setup for migrations –Allows users seamlessly migrate Oracle database data between LUNs within the array –Virtual LUN migrations take place within the storage array  Configuration –18 LUNs were allocated to the virtual machine –Nondisruptively moves storage from RAID 1 to RAID 6

18 18© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Conclusions  Reduction of cost—server consolidation –Multiple Oracle database environments consolidated into a two-node VMware cluster –Optimization of hardware means decreased hardware power, cooling, and licensing costs  Ease of application deployment –Quickly convert from physical to virtual infrastructure using: ▪VMware vCenter Converter ▪EMC SAN management tools –Decouple application/database from physical infrastructure What did the use case illustrate and how can it help you? Server Consolidation Application Deployment

19 19© Copyright 2012 EMC Corporation. All rights reserved. Conclusions  High availability—reducing data center downtime with VMware VMotion and VMware HA –VMotion: Planned downtime—eliminate or greatly reduce at lower cost –HA: Unplanned downtime—reduce by implementing HA across the virtualized cluster  Storage efficiencies—increased flexibility –Concise building block approach to storage design –Outlined: ▪Number of spindles ▪RAID types ▪Volume management options such as RDM and VMFS ▪How to implement RAID group layout and LUN sizes Continued High Availability Storage Efficiencies
