S o l u t i o n P r o f i l e Hitachi Converged Platform for Oracle® Database Overview: Faster Time to Value Validated Solution Ensures Consistent, Predictable Results Hitachi Converged Platform for Oracle Database is engineered, pre-tested and qualified to provide predictable performance and the highest reliability in demanding, dynamic Oracle environments, something Hitachi has been doing for over 20 years. This solution, combining Hitachi compute and storage components, is validated to ensure consistent, predictable results. To keep up with the growth of Oracle databases, companies have rushed to add storage and servers without considering how existing storage resources might be better utilized. This often requires the addition of more administrators and software layers to manage the expansion of resources. Without a holistic strategy for optimizing the Oracle environment, unsystematic growth, and its associated uncontrolled costs, can create an increasingly expensive cycle. Through a combination of our solutions and expertise in Oracle environments, Hitachi Data Systems can help companies control capital and operational costs, while increasing performance, data protection and flexibility. We can help ensure the right information is available in the right place, at the right time and for the right cost. Regardless of how complex your Oracle environment is, we can help you deliver your data in a manner that best supports your business objectives. S o l u t i o n P r o f i l e 2 Easy to Implement, Easy to Maintain and Cost-effective Capitalize on the benefits of an integrated solution sooner with Hitachi Converged Platform for Oracle Database (see Figure 1). Provide faster deployment of an automated infrastructure designed for growth. For this solution, Hitachi Data Systems offers a single source for ordering pre-configured equipment, reference architectures, guides and services, which significantly improves the speed to deployment. bottlenecks in performance and throughput. The CB 2000 embedded logical partitioning feature supports unprecedented configuration flexibility. CB 2000 elegantly integrates network, power and server resources into a single, space-efficient, flexible solution. The rackmountable 10U chassis houses up to 8 server blade modules. For I/O versatility, there are 6 bays for internal switches and, uniquely for a blade server, up to 16 slots for standard low-profile PCI Express 2.0 cards. With sophisticated, built-in reliability, availability and serviceability (RAS) features, CB 2000 reduces the risk of unplanned downtime for mission-critical applications. Predictable, repeatable, reliable results with pre-validated reference architectures Faster speed to deploy and increased ability to meet changing needs, with a single source for components and prescriptive guides Massive throughput and unprecedented configuration flexibility of the Hitachi Compute Blade hybrid I/O architecture Extreme reliability of Hitachi Unified Storage and its symmetric active-active controllers Nondisruptive, high-speed data replication that enables immediate use of data in decision support, software testing and development, and data protection operations Logical snapshot data replication, which allows immediate use without impacting host service or performance levels Delivery of high performance and reliable backup and recovery via Oracle Enterprise Manager and Oracle Recovery Manager Simplified and centralized storage management with Oracle Enterprise Manager and Hitachi Command Suite Performance. CB 2000 meets the performance needs of large-scale systems that require extremely high compute power and I/O (via the hybrid I/O subsystem). In addition, CB 2000 also supports multiblade SMP capabilities on highperformance blades, allowing aggregation of up to 4 blades to create a single server environment. Scalability. The robust, rack-mountable 10U chassis of CB 2000 houses up to 8 server blade modules. With the X57A2 high-performance blade, 4 blades supporting up to 2 processors can be aggregated, supporting up to 64 cores per environment. Memory is expandable up to 1TB, and the I/O subsystem supports up to 8 expansion mezzanine cards and 8 PCIe cards for a single environment. Virtualization capability can also be scaled up: LPAR supports configurations of up to 16 LPARs per environment. Reliability. The CB 2000 chassis is fully redundant and components are hotswappable. These components include: redundant switch and management modules, extremely reliable backplane and I/O, N +1 or fully redundant power supply modules, and N+M model; failover protection follows. There are "M" backup blades for every "N" active server blade, so failover is cascading. In the event of hardware failure, the system automatically detects the fault and identifies the problem by indicating the faulty module, allowing immediate failure recovery. Figure 1. Hitachi Converged Platform for Oracle Database Configuration flexibility. CB 2000 supports Linux operating systems (OS), a wide range of virtualization solutions in addition to LPAR, and industry-standard PCIe cards, providing a high level of flexibility and investment protection. The system is also extremely expandable in terms of processor cores, I/O slots, memory and other components; the chassis can be configured via a pointand-click graphical HTML-based web interface. Blade Servers with Modular Storage Hitachi Converged Platform for Oracle Database consists of Hitachi Compute Blade 2000 (CB 2000) and Hitachi Unified Storage 150. Together, they provide predictable reliability and performance. Hitachi Compute Blade 2000 Hitachi Compute Blade 2000 blade server is an enterprise-class platform. Featuring a balanced system architecture, it eliminates The CB 2000 enterprise-class capabilities also extend to workloads. CB 2000 allows the most demanding workloads, particularly I/O-intensive applications such as online transaction processing, to be run with extremely high performance, reliability, manageability, scalability and flexibility. This means it is now possible to run missioncritical applications and consolidate systems at the application or database tiers. S o l u t i o n P r o f i l e 3 Hitachi Unified Storage 150 Hitachi Data Systems has redefined unified storage to help businesses meet their growth requirements with a platform that stores multiple data types without compromise. All data can be provisioned, managed and archived throughout its lifecycle consistently and efficiently. Hitachi Unified Storage is a new platform with legendary Hitachi reliability. It offers balanced scalability for block, file and object data. It is simple to manage, optimized for critical business applications and more flexible than any other midrange storage choice. Hitachi Unified Storage is part of an integrated portfolio of storage solutions that can be managed from a single interface for optimal management efficiencies. Hitachi Unified Storage not only grows to massive system capacity levels but also can seamlessly grow individual file and block volume sizes to levels that are far greater than other unified storage choices. As performance requirements grow, keeping up won't be a problem. Organizations can save costs in multiple ways. Consolidating separate database application data into one platform not only reduces capital acquisition amounts but also, more significantly, reduces operational expenditures on power, cooling and floor space. Hitachi Unified Storage was designed to further save costs with data efficiency capabilities that include thin provisioning and automatic tiering. With built-in automation that optimizes performance, users can be assured that they will get the most out of their investment. Intuitive and easy-to-use software that comes with system has been designed to simplify even the most complex environments. Meeting service level objectives for critical business applications has never been easier with a solution that provides the highest level of performance, data availability and data protection. Each module is hot-swappable and supports live firmware updates without the need for shutting down the blades. This makes it the best choice for a highly available system. Each module supports an independent management LAN interface from the data network for remote and secure management of the chassis and all blades. Each module supports a serial CLI and a web interface. The management modules also support SNMP and email alert notification so that administrators are always notified of any issues.
