EMC and Oracle Get Down To Business at Oracle OpenWorld


It should be no surprise to know that EMC Corporation and Oracle have a strong alliance built on a long-term relationship which drive a significant systems business for Oracle.  But what might be news is to see how these two companies have closely collaborated to drive technology integration and best practices around joint solutions for Oracle SPARC systems.  Just a few examples include their joint efforts around LDoms (Oracle VM Server for SPARC), and new feature integration with Oracle Solaris 11.2.  

Watch this short video filmed at Oracle OpenWorld this year to see how this technology collaboration is providing significant advantage to our customers.

System performance issues? Check the I/O

Did you ever have a performance problem and not know where to start looking? Well, who didn't? In such a situation, it is important to perform a proper monitoring of the system and resist the immediate urge to blame the processing power --the storage subsystem is often overlooked. Now that I spoiled the suspense giving away the answer, give me 5 minutes to illustrate this with a typical example. Why typical? Because this is a case I meet quite often with startup companies who rightly concentrate on their core business and not on their IT infrastructure --that's what we are here for.

One of our partners, Squid Solutions, recently reported a performance problem with an Oracle database; they had engaged our team as part of the Sun Startup Essentials support program. Squid Solutions makes a software called Nautilus that performs intensive analytics on database systems, whatever their kind or size. They call Nautilus an SQL Knowledge Engine because it models data and business knowledge, and then automatically generates SQL code to execute the data processing tasks. Nautilus is sold as a service performed by Squid's engineers as Customer Intelligence projects.

So, Squid Solutions had purchased a brand-new Sun Fire X2250 server --quad-core Intel Xeon with 4 GB of RAM, running Solaris 10--, and was experiencing poor performance --much lower than their old system of previous generation-- when executing a read-n-write intensive workload on the database. When I first got on the server, something jumped right to my eyes…
