The demands of database implementations continue to escalate. Faster transaction processing speeds, scalable capacity, and increased flexibility is required to meet the needs of today’s business. At the same time, enterprises are looking for cost-effective, open-architecture solutions that don’t include vendor lock-in or carry the high price tag attached to single-vendor, proprietary solutions. Customers today require high performance, highly available flexible database solutions without the high cost and rigidity of an “all-Oracle” solution. The HP Universal Database Solution: HP ProLiant DL580 Gen8 and HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-flash Array combination running Oracle 12c, delivers just that by providing a fully tested flexible, high performance, and high-availability reference architecture. In addition to the performance, availability, and total cost of ownership savings of the non-virtualized HP Universal Database (UDB), solution you can reap additional efficiencies by deploying a large database instance on the virtualization reference architecture (VMware® vSphere 5.5 or higher) described in this paper. The HP UDB is powered by the new HP ProLiant DL580 Gen8 Server, a highly reliable and scalable four-socket x86 server based on top-of-the-line E7-4800/8800 v2 processors by Intel®, and the HP 3PAR StoreServ 7450 All-flash Storage Array. While the HP UDB can be tailored to run any database software, this white paper focuses on configurations, results and best practices for the Oracle 12c database.
