Oracle Performance Equal on Virtual Servers as on Physical According to New Research from Confio Software
BOULDER, Colo. --(Business Wire)--
Software, the makers of the award-wining Ignite suite of database
performance tools, revealed the results of an in-depth, independent
study regarding the performance of Oracle (News - Alert) databases on VMware virtual
servers. The results of the analysis show Oracle performance was
essentially unchanged when moving from a physical to a VMware server
The tested performance was illustrated using Confio IgniteVM, a software
tool used by database administrators (DBAs) to ensure database
performance and availability on VMware. Test analysis showed no loss of
transaction throughput, with VMware actually running slightly faster in
some cases. This performance testing in conjunction with the IgniteVM
monitoring results confirm that Oracle can be run on VMware without
compromising performance or availability.
"We are seeing rapid adoption of VMware for Oracle hosting throughout
our installed base," said Don Bergal, chief marketing officer for
Confio. "With IgniteVM specifically focused on making thse
implementations successful, our customers are achieving their VMware
migration objectives. This study backs up the findings that with proper
management, DBAs can gain the flexibility cost benefits of VMware and
still maintain performance."
The analysis conducted was possible using IgniteVM exclusively, because
other available database tools have visibility only to the virtual
server statistics, while IgniteVM exposes actual physical server
resources available to the database. IgniteVM gives an accurate picture
of how the database is really performing in the virtual machine,
physical server, and storage layers.
