Oracle software is a powerful candidate to look at re-hosting on z Systems. Why? The deployment of distributed Oracle software, especially the Oracle database servers, often results in a level of complexity that is hard to manage and increasingly expensive. Together, IBM and Oracle can provide an integrated and virtualized data center environment designed to optimize business agility and efficiency.

Oracle Database 12c Release 1 and Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) on Linux for IBM z Systems

Oracle Database 12c Release 1 is ideal for Oracle z Systems deployments that need to support high volume online transaction processing and query intensive data warehousing applications. It introduces a new multi-tenant architecture that makes it easy to deploy and manage database clouds. Innovations such as Oracle Multitenant, for consolidating multiple databases quickly, and Automatic Data Optimization with Heat Map, for compressing and tiering data at a higher density, maximize resource efficiency and flexibility.

The IBM z Systems is an ideal platform for private and public cloud deployments.

Oracle Real Application Clusters helps you run packaged or custom applications in a parallel database environment that takes advantage of the processing power of multiple interconnected computers, operating as a cluster. In an Oracle RAC environment, all nodes run concurrent Oracle Database instances and execute transactions against the same database. If a clustered server fails, the Oracle Database continues running on the remaining servers.

Learn how clients have put Oracle to work on Linux on z Systems to lower cost and become more efficient:

Consolidating multiple Oracle database servers onto a single IBM z Systems server running multiple virtual Linux servers can reduce system management and maintenance requirements. z/VM’s outstanding virtualization, IBM Wave for z/VM’s intelligent workload management, the unique ability to support diverse workloads concurrently, high levels of security and intelligent recovery capabilities make the z Systems environment the ideal choice to host Oracle solutions and serve as a hub in the IT infrastructure.

Solution centers around the world with teams of Oracle and IBM experts work together to provide design, development, testing, technical support and education to support your Oracle solutions running on z Systems.

Linux on z Systems can help you build a simplified and unified IT infrastructure for your Oracle solutions.
