Title: Large-Scale Oracle RAC (and Sun Oracle Database Machine) Scalability Design
Abstract: In this technical session, hear how a large corporate investment bank tames a yearly 50 percent to 100 percent data growth rate with Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) and Sun Oracle Database Machines. With databases totaling hundreds of terabytes, an integrated design of databases, storage, and servers is the cornerstone of scalability. This presentation highlights storage design from an Oracle RAC perspective as well as the specific challenges of Oracle RAC data warehouses and Oracle RAC geographical clusters. Real-life measurements on Oracle Solaris, Linux, EMC² storage, and RDS over InfiniBand (outside and inside the Sun Oracle Database Machine) illustrate performance and scalability perspectives and bottlenecks.
