Oracle on vSphere Licensing

Dave Welch, House of Brick




“We have never seen a workload that does not belong on virtualization”

“There is nothing in your contract that says you are obligated due to capability”

“Processor shall be defined as all processors where the Oracle Program are installed and/or Running”

“This whole issue we have to license on a capability?is illogical”?

As always David Welch provided a lot of valuable information. When talking about?Oracle Licensing?policy documents?David discussed which documents are?contractual and which are not. For example, The Oracle Partitioning Guide is not contractual?and also is not accurate. The Software Investment guide is not Contractual?but is accurate.

David stressed the importance of a Proactive?approach when it comes to Oracle Licensing. Make sure you to a baseline compliance check. Don’s sit back and wait for Oracle License Management Services to come knocking at your door to find out you are out of compliance.

With NSX we enable a policy approach to security management”

“Each host is only responsible for the workloads running on it, making it infinitely scalable”?

“NSX is your one-stop shop for ?Network and Security “

Security folks don’t seem to understand the impact of their decisions on the business?

Love the Technology, I am geeking out on it, But its only half the answer

Need to ensure VM is encrypted, Ensure Hypervisor Security…

Every company I talk to is looking for a technical solution to a process problem

vSphere Core & SDDC – Scheduler & Memory allocated to Virtual Machines

Richard Xunjia (Lu) Sr MTS, Host Platform and Mark Achtemichuk








CPU schedule, what to run and at what time

If two VM’s have same fair share, the one with the less consumed CPU will get the cycles

Sys-time?represented the amount of time done on behalf of the VM?

%RDY Ready-time the VM wanted to run but could not.?

Memory Swapping is bad

Fastest Code You can Run is the code you don’t execute

4k, 8k, 16k block size, its all the same

From oracle perspective you don’t benefit from de-dup, you benefit from compression
