Preserve user response time while ensuring data availability - Summary

52 views

Published on

Slow performance and unavailable critical applications can impinge a company’s progress. You can apply patches and updates to improve application quality and user experience, but these changes need to be tested in resource-intensive environments before deployment. Keeping these applications accessing data is vital, too, as on-premises events can put availability at risk.

Our Dell EMC VMAX 250F and PowerEdge server solution supported test/dev environments and production database applications simultaneously without affecting the production applications’ performance. As we added VMs designed for test/dev environments, the production workload maintained an acceptable level of IOPS and achieved an average storage latency of less than a millisecond. The solution also kept data highly available with no downtime and no performance drop when we initiated a lost host connection for the primary storage. To run critical database applications of your company, consider the Dell EMC VMAX 250F for your datacenter.

Preserve user response time while ensuring data availability - Summary

  1. 1. Preserve user response time by ensuring data availability April 2017 low storage latency Maintain mixing production and test/dev database workloads data access with SRDF® /Metro high availability Preserve Preserve user response time while ensuring data availability Dell EMC VMAX 250F all-flash storage and Dell EMC PowerEdge servers uphold performance of I/O-intensive Oracle Database 12c workloads and provide high availability Resource contention and lost connections can put critical database application performance and availability at risk. By reducing the chance of lag and downtime, IT staff can lay the groundwork to create a positive user experience. A Dell EMC™ VMAX™ 250F array and Dell EMC PowerEdge™ server solution can help companies achieve these goals. At Principled Technologies, our hands-on tests first proved that the array supports both production and test/dev environments in one spot. So when application owners and admins make changes, applications continue to access critical data at the speed of business. The VMAX 250F let us quickly create snapshots of production Oracle® Database 12c data, which ran with consistently low latency and high input/output per second (IOPS) even as we added seven test/dev database snapshots. Testing also showed that a production workload supported by a pair of VMAX 250F arrays, leveraging SRDF/Metro, continued to access data with no downtime and no performance drop when one of the arrays in the SRDF/Metro pair became unavailable. Executive summary A Principled Technologies report: Hands-on testing. Real-world results.
  2. 2. Preserve user response time by ensuring data availability April 2017 | 2 Slow performance and unavailable critical applications can impinge on a company’s progress. As we added VMs designed for test/dev environments, the production workload maintained an acceptable level of IOPS and achieved an average storage latency of less than a millisecond. The solution also kept data highly available with no downtime and no performance drop when we initiated a lost host connection for the primary storage. To run critical Oracle database 12c applications of your company, consider the Dell EMC VMAX 250F array. Run production applications and test/dev environments together harmoniously Having test/dev environments for updates and patches ensures a safety net for production applications. The Dell EMC VMAX 250F supported production Oracle 12c-based applications and test/dev environments at the same time without sacrificing performance or storage space. With these Oracle 12c databases existing together and functioning optimally, your company could gain a host of business growth-oriented benefits, including a reduction in storage hardware.
