Virtual Volumes for Oracle can Transform Storage

VMware Virtual Volumes has gained increasing adoption from storage vendors since its release. Virtual Volumes can help provide many distinct capabilities for virtualized Tier 1 business critical Oracle workloads that have not been available with traditional storage.

Running business critical databases on SDDC requires the use of policy-based storage leveraging Virtual Volumes capabilities, which this session will showcase.

DBTA recently held a webinar with Sudhir Balasubramanian, staff solution architect - Oracle Technology Lead (CPBU TMM), VMware, and Cody Hosterman Technical Director, VMware Solutions, Pure Storage, who discussed VMware Virtual Volumes, how it can help Oracle, and more.

Virtual Volumes for Oracle can allow users to achieve scale, simplicity, and performance, Hosterman said.

Right now companies are struggling with an integration sprawl and organizations are not using arrays as it was designed.

To meet database performance demands companies need to understand database requirements, Balasubramanian explained. While provisioning storage for an Oracle database enterprises also need to understand current infrastructure constraints.

Virtual Volumes are a game changer for virtualized databases and applications, according to Balasubramanian.

The tool is trustworthy and offers seamless backup and recovery. It provides simplified cloning and refresh operations. It is also an effective and consistent storage based policy management.
