Oracle VM and NetApp Storage - Best Practices Guide
NetApp's innovative technologies enable organizations to extract benefits out of their virtual infrastructures by seamlessly integrating advanced virtualized storage alongside the virtual servers. NetApp provides industry-leading solutions in the areas of data protection, thin storage provisioning, data deduplication, file-based backups, instantaneous Virtual Machine (VM) backup and restores, and instantaneous VM cloning for testing, application development, and training purposes. This technical paper reviews the best practices for implementing an Oracle VM virtual infrastructure with NetApp storage systems. Scenarios corresponding to all three storage protocols - NFS, iSCSI and FC are covered along with an Oracle VM - NetApp deployment case study.
