Friday Spotlight: Accelerating MySQL on Oracle Linux with Flash

Happy Friday!

Our spotlight this week is on a brand new white paper that can help you get the most out of MySQL running on Oracle Linux, with the help of Oracle's Sun Flash Accelerator F80 PCIe card. To give you an idea of the Oracle Linux part of this, here is an except from the paper's intro:

"Oracle Linux with Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel (UEK) was chosen for this study for several key reasons including its upstream support for the latest hardware relevant to modern data center operations, and SSD support and performance features such as SSD detect. In addition, MySQL database workloads benefit from the platform’s deep integration with the solution stack, optimizations resulting from industry collaborations and enhancements in the UEK.

We'll see you next week!

Fusion-io Showcases Data Integrity with Oracle Linux at Oracle OpenWorld 2013

Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) today announced ION Data Accelerator demonstrations at Oracle OpenWorld that delivers accelerated performance for Oracle Database environments, as well as enhanced end-to-end data integrity verified by the T10 Protection Information (T10 PI) specification. With Fusion ION Data Accelerator Software and Fusion ioDrive2 server flash memory products supporting the Oracle Linux operating system, Oracle Database, and Emulex LightPulse® Gen 5 Fibre Channel (16Gb Fibre Channel) Host Bus Adapters (HBAs).
Using the T10 PI specification, data corruption is noticed and fixed as it is written to shared storage, helping ensure reliability for enterprise applications.

The T10 PI data integrity demonstration features the Fusion ION Data Accelerator shared storage solution with Oracle Linux and Emulex Gen 5 FC HBAs. The demonstration incorporates Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, which supports integrity features that leverage the T10 PI specification.

The data integrity testing was conducted by inserting corrupt data into the system and verifying that despite the insertions, data integrity on ION Data Accelerator was not compromised. Using the T10 PI specification, data corruption is noticed and fixed as it is written to shared storage, helping ensure reliability for enterprise applications. The demonstration incorporates Oracle Linux with the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, which supports integrity features that leverage the T10 PI specification. Additional technical details about the T10 PI reliability demo are available here

Live demonstration of the Data integrity solution is being featured at Fusion-io booth 1127 during Oracle OpenWorld 2013 in San Francisco from September 22-26. Read the press release.

Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache: Only on Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris

Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache is a feature that was first introduced with Oracle Database 11g Release 2. Only available on Oracle Linux and Oracle Solaris, this feature increases the size of the database buffer cache without having to add RAM to the system. In effect, it acts as a second level cache on flash memory and will especially benefit read-intensive database applications.

The Oracle Database Smart Flash Cache white paper concludes:

Available at no additional cost, Database Smart Flash Cache on Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux has the potential to offer considerable benefit to users of Oracle Database 11g Release 2 with disk-bound read-mostly or read-only workloads, through the simple addition of flash storage such as the Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array or the Sun Flash Accelerator F20 PCIe Card.

Read the white paper.
