01 Oct 2013 SPARC M6-32 Delivers Oracle E-Business and PeopleSoft World Record Benchmarks [33003]
Linear Data Warehouse Scaling in a Virtualized Configuration

This result demonstrates how the combination of Oracle virtualization technologies for SPARC and Oracle's SPARC M6-32 server allow the deployment and concurrent high performance execution of multiple Oracle applications and databases sized for the Enterprise.

In an 8-chip Dynamic Domain (also known as PDom), the SPARC M6-32 server set a World Record E-Business 12.1.3 X-Large world record with 14,660 online users running five simultaneous E-Business modules.

In a second 8-chip Dynamic Domain, the SPARC M6-32 server set a World Record PeopleSoft HCM 9.1 HR Self-Service online supporting 34,000 users while simultaneously running a batch workload in 29.7 minutes. This was done with a database of 600,480 employees. In a separate test running a batch-only workload was run in 21.2 min.

In a third Dynamic Domain with 16-chips on the SPARC M6-32 server, a data warehouse test was run that showed near-linear scaling.

08 Nov 2012 How to Migrate Oracle Database 10 From Oracle Solaris 8 to Oracle Solaris 11 [28394]
Using the Oracle Solaris 8 P2V (Physical to Virtual) Tool

Orgad Kimchi has created a procedure for migrating Oracle Database from Oracle Solaris 8 to Oracle Solaris 11. His procedure utilizes the Oracle Solaris 8 P2V (physical to virtual) Archiver tool to migrate a physical Oracle Solaris 8 system with Oracle Database and an Oracle Automatic Storage Management file system located on SAN storage connected via a Fibre Channel HBA into an Oracle Solaris 8 branded zone inside an Oracle Solaris 10 guest domain on top of an Oracle Solaris 11 control domain. Kimchi demonstrates both how to preserve the host information and how to modify the host name.
