First article of the series is called: "Diving into OpenStack Network Architecure - Part 1".

WP: Oracle Multitenant on SuperCluster T5-8: Study of Database Consolidation Efficiency

Consolidation in the data center is the driving factor in reducing capital and operational expense in IT today. This is particularly relevant as customers invest more in cloud infrastructure and associated service delivery. Database consolidation is a strategic component in this effort.

Oracle Database 12 c introduces Oracle Multitenant , a new database consolidation model in which multiple Pluggable Databases (PDBs) are consolidated within a Container Database (CDB). While keeping many of the isolation aspects of single databases, it allows PDBs to share the system global area (SGA) and background processes of a common CDB .

The white paper recently published on OTN:

Oracle Multitenant on SuperCluster T5-8: Study of Database Consolidation Efficiency

analyzes and quantifies savings in compute resources, efficiencies in transaction processing, and consolidation density of Oracle Multitenant compared to consolidated single instance databases (SIDBs) running in a bare-metal environment.
