Fully Redundant Integrated System

Providing access to information 24/7 and protecting databases from unforeseen as well as planned downtime can be a challenge for many organizations. Indeed, manually building redundancy into database systems can be risky and error-prone if the right skills and resources are not available in-house. The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 is designed for simplicity and reduces that element of risk and uncertainty to help customers deliver higher availability for their databases. The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 hardware is a 4U rack-mountable system containing two Oracle Linux servers and one storage shelf. Each server features two 8- core Intel Xeon processors E5-2690, 256 GB of memory, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) Base-T external networking connectivity. The two servers are connected together via a redundant 10-GbE interconnect for cluster communication and share direct-attached high performance SAS storage. The appliance contains 18 TB of raw storage that’s doublemirrored or triple-mirrored, offering 9 TB or 6 TB, respectively, of resilient usable database storage. And, there are four 200 GB solid-state disks for the database redo logs to boost performance. The appliance is also designed with mission-critical requirements in mind, with hot-swappable and redundant components.

The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 runs Oracle Database, Enterprise Edition, and customers have the choice of running Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) or Oracle RAC One Node for “active-active” or “active-passive” database server failover.

Optional Storage Expansion

The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 offers the flexibility to double the storage capacity of the system. With the optional storage expansion shelf, the raw storage capacity of the appliance increases to a total of 36 TB. With double-mirrored or triple-mirrored data redundancy, the usable database storage increases to a total of 18 TB or 12 TB, respectively. There are also an additional four 200 GB solid-state disks in the storage expansion shelf. And, to expand storage outside of the appliance, external NFS storage is supported for online backups, data staging, or additional database files.

Ease of Deployment, Management, and Support

To help customers easily deploy and manage their databases, the Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 features the Appliance Manager software for one-button automation to provision, patch, and diagnose database servers. The Appliance Manager feature greatly simplifies the deployment process and ensures that the database configuration adheres to Oracle’s best practices. It also drastically simplifies maintenance by patching the entire appliance, including all firmware and software, in one operation, using an Oracle-tested patch engineered specifically for the appliance. Its built-in diagnostics also monitor the system and detect component failures, configuration issues, and deviations from best practices. Should it be necessary to contact Oracle Support, the Appliance Manager collects all relevant log files and environmental data into a single compressed file. In addition, the Oracle Database Appliance Auto Service Request (ASR) feature can automatically log service requests with Oracle Support to help speed resolution of issues.

Capacity-On-Demand Licensing

The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 offers customers a unique capacity-on-demand database software licensing model to quickly scale from 2 to 32 processor cores without any hardware upgrades. Customers can deploy the system and license as few as 2 processors cores to run their database servers, and incrementally scale up to the maximum of 32 processor cores. This enables customers to deliver the performance and high availability that business users demand, and align software spending with business growth.

Solution-In-A-Box through Virtualization

The Oracle Database Appliance X3-2 enables customers and ISVs to quickly deploy both database and application workloads in a single appliance on a virtualized platform, based on Oracle VM. Support for virtualization adds additional flexibility to the already complete and fully integrated database solution. Customers and ISVs benefit from a complete solution that efficiently utilizes resources and takes advantage of capacity-on-demand licensing for multiple workloads by leveraging Oracle VM hard partitioning.
