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.

Getting Started with Linux Containers on Oracle Linux (HOL10019)
Linux Containers (LXC) allow you to run multiple isolated Linux instances (containers) on the same host. A container is a way to isolate a group of processes from the others on a running Linux system that does not require you to set up a virtual machine on an emulation of physical hardware. This hands-on session gives you the basics of working with LXC on Oracle Linux; installing and configuring required software packages; setting up a Btrfs volume for the container storage; configuring, starting, and logging in to a container; changing a container's network configuration; limiting a container's resource usage (network/disk I/O); cloning an existing container; and monitoring and shutting down containers.
Oracle Linux Package and Patch Management Solutions (HOL10147)
In this session, you will learn how to implement and work with various patch management features of Oracle Linux. This includes working with the yum package manager and getting hands-on experience in obtaining more information on security errata using the security plug-in. The yum snapshot plug-in and the Btrfs file system are used to demonstrate how you can roll back package updates to a previous state. The session also covers creating a local yum repository and how to connect this repository to Oracle Enterprise Manager. In addition, you will learn about the Ksplice service and have the opportunity to install and configure the Ksplice offline client for applying kernel updates to your system with zero downtime.
Visit our demopod to receive a Oracle Linux and Oracle VM DVD Kit and other goodies. You can plan your visit in the Openworld Schedule Builder and also bookmark Focus on Linux website to see when Oracle Linux events are happening.
We look forward to seeing you in Moscone South demogrounds and hands-on labs.
