Oracle RAC on VMware vSphere 5.0

VMware vSphere® provides a high performance virtualization platform that is capable of hosting the most critical portions of infrastructure, including Oracle RAC databases. vSphere 5 has increased these capabilities, including support for virtual machines with up to 32 vCPUs and 1TB of RAM. This support for larger virtual machines (VMs) combined with vSphere’s high performance capabilities makes vSphere a great platform for running large Oracle RAC database clusters. EMC® IT has implemented vSphere throughout many parts of their infrastructure and is now in the process of moving the largest and most critical applications to vSphere. EMC and VMware worked together to evaluate the performance of one of EMC’s largest Oracle RAC databases on vSphere 5
