VMware Demo – Extended Oracle RAC across sites with VMware NSX
Our team has been working on building solutions for NSX with Business Critical Applications around Zero trust security, application mobility, operational efficiency, increased security and more .
In a previous post I published a demo about database cloning and enforcing dynamic security policies using NSX: http://blogs.vmware.com/apps/2016/04/dynamically-enforcing-security-on-a-hot-cloned-sql-server-with-vmware-nsx.html
In this blog post we are showcasing the ability to stretch an Oracle RAC solution in an Extended Oracle RAC deployment between multi-datacenter and using VMware NSX for L2 Adjacency.
With Extended Oracle RAC , both Storage and Network virtualization needs to be deployed to provided high availability, workload Mobility, workload balancing and effective Site Maintenance between sites.
NSX supports multi-datacenter deployments to allow L2 adjacency in software, to put it in simple words stretching the network to allow VM too utilize the same subnets in multiple sites.
The really cool thing here is that this is 100% implemented in software and can be easily augmented and replicated to your needs. You can even choose multiple implementation paths and configurations and apply all of them at the same time with minimal dependency to the physical infrastructure and it configuration. After all, this is virtual!
