15 Mar 2013 'Best Practices for Deploying Oracle Solaris Zones with Oracle Database 11g on SPARC SuperCluster [30153]
Oracle White Paper

Giri Mandalika summarizes the Oracle white paper "Best Practices for Deploying Oracle Solaris Zones with Oracle Database 11g on SPARC SuperCluster," explaining that SuperCluster users have the choice of running their databases in logical domains dedicated to running Oracle Database 11g R2.

With exclusive access to Exadata Storage Servers, those domains are called "Database" domains. Users can create and use all logical domains as "database domains" or "application domains" or a mix of those, Mandalika writes. The paper talks only about database domains and their creation, configuration and use within each database domain for fine grained control over multiple databases in a SuperCluster environment.

08 Mar 2013 Oracle Releases Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 [30069]
Still Plenty of Life Left in the Old OS

Among the attributes of the recently released Oracle Solaris 10.1.13 are the inclusion of the Oracle Solaris Zones Preflight System Checker; the Oracle Solaris Live Upgrade Preflight Checker; and improved transfer speed rates for SSH, SCP, and SFTP in moderate (50ms) to high latency environments. Oracle testing shows scp transfer times of Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 are 1/8 the times of a similarly configured Oracle Solaris 10 8/11 system for multi-megabyte file transfers. Read Glynn Foster's post to learn about the abundant life still left in Oracle Solaris 10 OS.

02 Mar 2013 How to: Build a Private Virtual Network with Zones in Solaris 11 [29973]
Networking with a 'Roll-your-own' Virtual Switch

Courtesy of User 13333379, readers are alerted to Stefan Schneider"s multi-part how-to on building a private virtual network with Solaris 11 Zones. Among the several tasks Schneider leads readers through are:

  • Creating a virtual switch (gbswitch0) inside your Solaris 11 servers
  • Creating virtual network interfaces which will be attached to the virtual switch
  • Creating zones which will use the virtual switch
  • Configuring the routing to keep all communication inside your Solaris server
  • Configuring a network address translation (NAT) which allow your internal zones to access external services like DNS
  • Configuring a reverse proxy for the public network interface.

01 Mar 2013 Database Isolation in the Private and Public Cloud [29977]
Oracle RAC in Solaris 11 Zones Generally Does the Job; Use Encapsulation when Security Issues Demand It

The isolation of natively consolidated databases, whether private or public, on a a single shared Oracle Grid Infrastructure can generally be accommodated by the provisions built in to Oracle Database, B.R. Clouse posts, citing "Best Practices for Database Consolidation in Private Clouds" for details. Database clouds hosting databases with security or compliance considerations can be isolated through the encapsulation techniques, either logical or physical, provided by Oracle Database 11g R2 RAC in Solaris 11 Zones. A second white paper, "Encapsulating Oracle Databases with Oracle Solaris 11 Zones," explains this capability. Clouse also recommends the white paper "The Oracle Optimized Solution for Enterprise Database Cloud."

01 Mar 2013 White Paper: Implementing Root Domains with Oracle VM Server for SPARC [29976]
Introduces Root Domain Model as One of Several Architectures Supported by Oracle VM Server for SPARC

"Implementing Root Domains with Oracle VM Server for SPARC," a new Oracle white paper by Mikel Manitius, Michael Ramchand, and Jeff Savit, describes how to use Oracle VM Server for SPARC root domains (domains that are assigned a PCIe bus) along with Solaris zones for maximum performance and a high degree of flexibility. This combination can be used to provide bare-metal performance and eliminate dependencies between domains, and can be a useful alternative to deployments based on service domains and virtual I/O, co-author Savit posts. The paper introduces the root domain model as one of several architectures Oracle VM Server for SPARC product supports.
