Why use OVM for Oracle Databases

Some time ago I made a benchmark exercise to compare the performance of an Oracle Database running in a bare metal environment versus a virtualized environment to clear some of the main questions our team and clients in Revera have, such as:

  • Does an Oracle Database performs well on a virtualized environment?
  • What virtualization technology is more stable and allows an Oracle database to perform faster?
  • What is the performance difference between using a bare metal and a virtualized guest?
  • Is it safe to run a production database in a virtualized environment?

Here you can find the results and the answers to the questions above: http://oraclenz.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/Why-use-OVM-Revera.pdf
