This document describes the configuration of three different solutions for virtualizing Oracle database servers on VMware® Infrastructure and EMC Celerra storage. These solutions enable enterprises to take a number of their departmental databases and consolidate them on to a smaller number of servers, thereby reducing administrative requirements, simplifying end-user access and control, and reducing overall system costs associated with complex Oracle environments. Once virtualized, Oracle databases can reap all the benefits of a virtualized platform. These benefits include rapid database server provisioning, simplified high availability and disaster recovery, reduced server hardware requirements and associated costs such as power, cooling, and rack space.
