Why Virtualizing Oracle RAC?
- you can leverage vMotion
- you can leverage HA
- with vSphere 5.1 performances are very high and you can scale on demand
- you can use both standard vSwithes or distributed vSwithes
- use SCSI Paravirtualized driver + KB1034165
- still much work in progress
Demo: deploy two nodes from a pre-configured template (video to come in a future post)
