Oracle Systems _ Solaris and Oracle Enterprise Linux Oracle’s two OS strategy.pdf

  1. 1. Solaris  and  Oracle  Enterprise  Linux:  Oracle’s  two  OS  strategy   Nathan  Kroenert   Frontline  Systems  Australia  and  Melbourne  Solaris  Users  Group  ‘President’   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  2. 2. Agenda  •  The  role  of  the  OS  in  applicaBon  delivery  •  Oracle’s  two  OS’s  •  Key  advantages  of  each  OS  •  WHY  TWO???  •  How  should  I  choose?  •  Summary   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  3. 3. Unix  and  Unix  Like?   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  4. 4. The  role  of  the  OS  in  applicaBon   delivery  •  What  does  the  OS  actually  do  for  us?  •  Do  some  do  different  jobs  bePer  than  others?  •  NaBve  OS  features  versus  bolt-­‐on  features  •  The  OS  is  NOT  unimportant  –  even  (or   especially!)  on  Hypervisors   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  5. 5. Oracle’s  two  OS’s:  Solaris  and  OEL  •  Solaris  –  Acquired  in  the  purchase  of  Sun   –  Best  scaling  OS   –  Largest  install  base  of  large  Oracle  installaBons   –  Leader  in  performance  and  scale  in  many   categories   –  Support  for  SPARC  and  X-­‐64  systems  from  many   vendors   –  Comfortably  scales  beyond  512  threads,  TB’s  of   memory,  hundred  of  I/O  adapters   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  6. 6. Oracle’s  two  OS’s:  Solaris  and  OEL  •  OEL  –  refined  from  the  Red  Hat  source  base   –  Now  Includes  Unbreakable  Enterprise  Kernel  by   default   –  CAN  be  fully  Redhat  compaBble   –  Supported  by  Oracle  for  enterprise  DB  before  any   other  vendor   –  Used  in  original  Exadata   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  7. 7. Upgrading  or  starBng  fresh   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  8. 8. Key  Advantages  of  OEL  •  Is  Linux!  (Some  organizaBons,  and  ISV’s  require  it,   aPracBve  development  environment.)  •  Can  leverage  the  global  community  in  terms  of   available  applicaBons  and  OS  development  •  Has  the  mindshare  as  ‘Linux’,  which  is  separated   from  UNIX  •  Support  on  a  variety  of  hardware;  though  OEL  is   only  X-­‐64.  •  Support  for  many  devices   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  9. 9. Key  Advantages  of  OEL  •  Has  Bered  support  pricing  (Network,  Basic,   Premier)  •  Is  more  familiar  to  School/University  leavers   than  UNIX  •  Has  the  OVM  Hypervisor  as  an  opBon,  which   can  contain  OEL,  Solaris,  Windows,  etc.   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  10. 10. Key  Advantages  of  Solaris  •  Support  for  SPARC  hardware   –  T-­‐series  systems     •  Best  performance  per  waP     •  Up  to  512  threads  in  5RU   •  Consolidate  old  Solaris  systems  whilst  barely  breathing   –  M-­‐series  systems     •  mainframe  like  reliability     •  HA  with  No  Single  point  of  failure  in  large  scale  systems   •  Hardware  Domainable   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  11. 11. Key  Advantages  of  Solaris  •  Fastest,  highest  scaling,  most  resilient,  more   widely  supported  UNIX  •  KEY  OS  capabiliBes  that  include    •  Dtrace   •  Resource  Management  •  ZFS   •  SMF  •  Containers   •  FMA  •  SMF   •  Full  support  for  LDOMS  •  Branded  Containers   •  Wholly  owned   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  12. 12. Why  BOTH?  •  Opportunity  to  make  the  best  of  all  worlds:   –  Tightly  integrated  and  opBmized  for  the  total   Oracle  stack   –  Opportunity  to  shape  the  OS  as  Silicone  is   developed,  and  take  advantage  of  it  first   –  Tightest  integraBon  with  Oracle  DB   –  Build  largest,  most  resilient  and  scalable  systems   –  Many  elements  CORE  to  the  OS,  rather  than  bolt-­‐ on.   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  13. 13. Why  BOTH?  •  OEL   –  Broad  compaBbility  with  Linux  Ecosystem   –  Pricing  opBons   –  Choice  of  Kernel;  Faster  and  bePer  scaling   Unbreakable  Enterprise  Kernel,  or  the  fully   RedHat  compaBble  Kernel   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  14. 14. The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  15. 15. Wonder  Twin  Powers:  AcBvate!  •  Both  OEL  and  Solaris  can  be  managed  by  OEM   Ops  Centre  •  Using  OEM,  both  can  be  supported  by  the  one   support  team  from  an  operaBonal  perspecBve  •  Regular  configuraBon  to  use  OEL  in  smaller  web-­‐ facing  environments,  and  Solaris  on  the  larger   systems  in  the  back-­‐end  •  ‘Red  Stack’  –  It’s  actually  not  just  a  markeBng   thrust.   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  16. 16. How  do  I  choose?  •  SOE  /  Strategic  Architecture  /  Vendor  ojen   determines  rather  than  choice  •  Where  more  business  criBcal,  higher  value   transacBons  are  involved,  Solaris  is  typically  a   bePer  choice  –  even  if  only  for  DTrace,  SMF   and  FMA.    •  Horizontal,  node  based  scaling  typically   targeted  for  OEL.     The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  17. 17. The  best  of  both  worlds  •  Whether  you  want  speed,  scale,  access  to  the   most  packages,  best  tools,  greatest  diagnosBc   capabiliBes,  highest  resilience,  Oracle  has  you   covered  in  the  Linux/Unix  space.  •  OEL  6  has  released,  now  with  unbreakable  kernel   by  default  •  Watch  this  space  for  Solaris  11  –  There  is  an   Express  Version  already  Available  •  Wait  and  see  what  the  next  GeneraBon  SPARC  T-­‐ series  systems  can  do!   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
  18. 18. Summary:  •  Typically  not  as  simple  as  one  or  the  other  •  If  you  are  leaning  towards  verBcal  scale  and  high   value  business  transacBons,  Solaris  •  If  you  need  greatest  reliability  or  diagnosability,   Solaris  •  If  you  are  leaning  towards  lower  cost  compute,  or   business  transacBons,  OEL  •  If  you  have  a  need  to  get  or  use  more  of  the   ‘linux  /opensource’  community  sojware,  OEL.    •  Frequently  use  both!   The most comprehensive Oracle applications & technology content under one roof
