Overview: Oracle Database Appliance

The Oracle Database Appliance saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of high-availability database solutions. Built with the latest generation of the world’s most popular database — Oracle Database 11g — it offers customers a fully integrated system of software, servers, storage, and networking in a single box that delivers high-availability database services for a wide range of homegrown and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP) and data warehousing applications. All hardware and software components are supported by a single vendor — Oracle — and offers customers unique pay-as-you-grow software licensing to quickly scale from 2 processor cores to 24 processor cores without incurring the costs and downtime usually associated with hardware upgrades.

The Oracle Database Appliance hardware is a single 4U rackmountable chassis containing two Oracle Linux server nodes, each with two 6-core Intel Xeon processors X5675 and 96 GB of memory. The two server nodes are connected via an internal redundant gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interconnect for cluster communication, and each provides both 1 GbE and 10 GbE external networking connectivity. The appliance contains 12 TB of raw storage that’s triple-mirrored, offering 4 TB of resilient usable database storage. There are also four 73 GB solid-state disks for database redo logs to boost performance. To expand storage outside of the appliance, external NFS storage is supported for online backups, data staging, or additional database files. The appliance is designed with mission-critical requirements in mind, with hotswappable and redundant components.

The Oracle Database Appliance runs Oracle Database 11g, Enterprise Edition, and customers have the choice of running Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) or Oracle RAC One Node for “active-active” or “active-passive” database server failover.
