Accelerate Oracle DB 10g Creation and Deployment Using VMware Infrastructure and EMC Celerra Writeable Checkpoints
VMware Infrastructure provides a great framework for creating and deploying encapsulated virtual machines. The benefits include cost savings, improved manageability, added flexibility, and shortened service time, among many others. VMware Infrastructure has proven to be the ideal architecture for many business applications such as Oracle. This paper described a process for the solution. A detailed procedure is provided to illustrate how the process works. Although the procedure is targeted to a certain software configuration, it can be easily tailored to fit other environments. To best utilize the process, careful planning beforehand is critical to the success of this solution.
