  • 1. FlexPod ®Oracle RAC Built on FlexPodOracle OpenWorld 2012
  • 2. Maximizing Value Requires New ThinkingScale performance and capacity on demandBuild in efficiency at every stepOptimize cost/performance by workloadDesign one architecture for all workloadsProvide seamless backups and DR protectionEnable continuous data availability for all tenantsSecurely isolate shared storageReduce complexity and cost and enable IT as aservice (ITaaS) 2 FlexPod®
  • 3. Industry Trend: Shared IT InfrastructureReduced TCO UNIX® Linux® RISC X86/X64 GbE/IB 10+ GbE SAN/DAS NAS 3 FlexPod®
  • 4. Standardized Infrastructure The Proven Approach Application- Zones of ITaaS External Based Silos Virtualization (Internal Cloud) Cloud Services Standardized shared infrastructure for the journey Flexible design for business growth  Scale out: Right size standardized FlexPod®  Scale up: Scale within base FlexPodScale with your business foundation 4 FlexPod®
  • 5. Challenges Operational Design   Complex administration   Complex design   Servers with Fibre Channel   Servers with FC, iSCSI and (FC), iSCSI, and Network File NFS System (NFS)   Scalable infrastructure   Quality of service (QoS)   Efficient resource allocation   Routine maintenance—patch and utilization management   Compatibility with existing   Unplanned maintenance— hardware software bug, hardware issues   Rapid provisioning   Deployment of new technology   Security and compliance 5 FlexPod®
  • 6. FlexPod Helps IT Accelerate the Business Service Request Service Available Traditional Many Weeks or Months Design and DC Detailed Procure Deploy Test Size Planning Design X X With FlexPod®   Reference BoM   Validated design > 50% Faster   Precise deployment DC Procure Deploy Test   Standard test plan Planning Service AvailablePreprovisioned FlexPod Benefits  Rapid deployment of applications   Agile service delivery  Shared pools meet most requirements   Higher productivity   Faster deployment DC   Higher quality Procure Deploy Test Planning Service Available   Simpler planning 6 FlexPod®
  • 7. Why FlexPod? Benefits   Low-risk, standardized shared infrastructure Cisco® UCS B-Series supporting a wide range of environments Blade Servers and Cisco UCS Manager   Highest possible data center efficiency   IT flexibility, providing business agility; scale out or up, but manage resource pools Cisco Nexus® Family Switches Features   Complete data center in a single rack   Performance-matched stack NetApp® FAS 10GE and FCoE   Step-by-step deployment guides   Solutions guide for multiple environments   Multiple classes of computing and storageShared infrastructure for a wide range of environments and applications supported in a single FlexPod® unit   Centralized management: NetApp® OnCommand® and Cisco UCS Manager 7 FlexPod®

Solution OrchestrationFlexPod for Oracle Database Solution Architecture Orchestration DBaaS, Consolidation, Testing and Development, and So Forth FlexPod Infrastructure Oracle Database Management over NFS Virtual Physical  Prescriptive Cisco UCS™  Pool based APIs  Policy driven Automate Cisco Nexus® and DCNM APIs Analyze Control NetApp® OnCommand® APIs FlexPod® 9 FlexPod®
  • 10. BenefitsFull stack virtualization  Improved hardware and license utilization  Secure multi-tenancyFaster deployment  SAN boot and service profiles  NetApp FlexClone® copiesScalability—up and out  B200 M3 Blade Server: very large memory with 10 cores  Data ONTAP® clustering: nondisruptive operationsAvailability  Hardware and software redundancy  No single point of failure 10 FlexPod®
  • 11. Benefits (continued)Integrated data protection  Automated space-efficient backups  Integrated Snapshot™ copies  Remote replication through SnapMirror® technology  Granular restore and recovery  Oracle® RMAN integrated approach  Recover up to System Change Number (SCN), date and time, and so on Database Size = 8TB Backup Time Restore and Recovery Time Schema = OAST (Full Database ) (Two Corrupt Data Files) SnapManager for Oracle (SMO) 00:01:47 00:04:27 Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) 06:38:00 00:09:12 RMAN with Binary Compression 26:48:40 00:16:28 11 FlexPod®
  • 12. Solution Architecture and Test Results 12 FlexPod®
  • 13. Ease of Scalability BMF Client on B200 M3 Blade ServerScale up and scale out  B200 M3 Blade Servers  Ten cores, high- performing system  Flash Cache to improve read performance  Reduced response time without adding drives 13 FlexPod®
  • 14. Database Consolidation BMF Client on B200 M3 Blade ServerVirtualization  Enables database consolidation  Quick provisioning through NetApp® FlexClone®  Improves utilization  Reduces risk of underprovisioning 14 FlexPod®
  • 15. Unmatched Scalability Deduplicated Example: 1,200 users Flash Cache 1GB/user = 1.2TB 30 IOPS/user = 36,000 IOPS steady state 16000 Peak Load (8 a.m. event) $$ I/O Optimization WAFL ® Write $$ Performance (IOPS) $$ $$ $$ $$ 8000 Steady State $$ $$ $$ $$ Four-node RAC and FlexVol® volumes $$ $$ 0 10 20 30 Avg. response time = 20 minutes Capacity (TB) Flash/controller = 512GB Sized for Sized for Capacity Performance 15 FlexPod®
  • 16. Consolidation – Key to Cost Reduction Example: 300 users Deduplicated 1GB/user = 0.3TB Flash Cache 30 IOPS/user = 9,000 IOPS steady state 4 RAC instances/UCS = 36,000 IOPS 16000 Peak Load (8 a.m. event) $$ I/O Optimization WAFL ® Write Performance (IOPS) $$ $$ $$ $$ $$ 8000 Steady State $$ $$ $$ $$ Two-node RAC and FlexVol® volumes $$ $$ 0 10 20 30 Consolidation = 4 RAC systems Capacity (TB) License savings = 75% Sized for Sized for Capacity Performance 16 FlexPod®
  • 17. Summary 17 FlexPod®
  • 18. Sizing MethodologyIntegrated system approach – physical or virtual  Based on a balanced configuration, workload requirements, and service-level agreements  Full stack: compute (servers), network, storage, and application software resources Avoid over- or under-provisioningFurther reduce software licensing costs by leveraging  Integrated host-based caching  Storage-based encryption and compression (for infrequently accessed data) rather than host-based “options” 18 FlexPod®
  • 19. Integration Delivers Powerful Benefits VMware vSphere Cisco UCS and NetApp Storage Cisco Nexus Servers Network  VMware® vSphere® provides  Cisco UCS™ unifies  50% less storage required end-to-end virtual machine computing, networking, and with unified multiprotocol (VM) provisioning and faster storage storage architecture cloning  Up to 30% improvement in  First and only server-to-  Up to 60% reduction in data network throughput storage interconnect for all center capital expenses protocols  Save up to 60% of memory  Save up to 80% in energy costs cost by increasing  Built-in efficiencies such as by lowering power, cooling, and consolidation ratios deduplication and thin real estate needs provisioning with faster provisioning 19 FlexPod®
