More businesses turn to Oracle database management software for large-scale database management needs than any other software manufacturer. Tens of thousands of IT organizations across the globe support their mission-critical database management with Oracle database tools and software. It is the number one choice for performance, reliability, and scalability.
Virtualization only makes Oracle Database better. Because of this, many IT organizations are virtualizing their Oracle operations with VMware. They are using VMware, the industry leading virtualization software, to help with the transition to virtual environments. Database administrators can reduce operating costs and hardware management expenses with VMware while still positioning themselves to more nimbly respond to changing business needs.
Additionally, managers and stakeholders can see quantifiable changes in time-to-market and total cost of ownership numbers with VMware.
Oracle VMware Database Tuning with IgniteVM
Any effort to move to a virtual environment to reduce hardware management costs will ultimately be unsuccessful if there is no coordinated plan to monitor virtual database performance. Performance monitoring and database tuning are as important to virtual machines as they are to physical ones. Linking database response performance with multiple layers of the virtual server architecture is only possible with IgniteVM. It uses application response delays to show DBAs when and where performance delays are taking place on both the virtual and physical levels. Database tuning efforts are therefore made much easier as a result of this accurate designation of problem areas. Performance issues are easily detected, located, and repaired.
Much of the risk of moving Oracle databases to virtual environments is removed by IgniteVMs ability to monitor the interoperation of Oracle and VMware on both the physical and virtual levels. Hidden I/O and CPU bottlenecks at the virtual server layer have been the reason why some IT organizations have been hesitant to migrate to an Oracle VMware environment. Their hesitation can be removed as DBAs now have the ability to spot and address these hidden bottlenecks.
