VMware Application Virtualization :: Oracle

Simplify Your Oracle Databases

Virtualize Oracle with VMware

Virtualizing Oracle on VMware vSphere® is a fully supported solution that improves application quality of service (QoS), and accelerates application lifecycles while significantly reducing hardware and software costs.

VMware delivers an industry-leading intelligent virtual infrastructure that maximizes performance and scalability while enabling fully automated disaster recovery, better-than-physical security and proactive management of service levels.

  • Maximize Oracle availability and scale dynamically
    VMware delivers built-in high-availability to improve service levels and eliminates planned downtime with VMware vMotion™. You can support increasing loads and reduce over-provisioning with the ability to hot-add capacity or migrate workloads to larger hosts.
  • Accelerate delivery of new databases
    Provision new Oracle instances in just minutes using pre-configured templates or vApps. Use VMware snapshots and clones to reproduce your Oracle environment for testing and troubleshooting.
  • Lower TCO and better ROI
    Consolidate hardware and software. Eliminate the need for dedicated test, training and productions environments and leverage policy-based automation for significant reductions in capital and operating expenses.
