Yesterday I posted an article about how to build a fully virtualized SPARC server pool. I thought I'd share one more diagram from the paper here, so people can get an idea what we're looking at.
Did you ever wish you could get the industrial strength power of UNIX/RISC with the flexibility of cloud computing? Well, now you can! With recent advances from Oracle it's possible to build an incredibly high-performance, flexible, available virtualized infrastructure based on Solaris and SPARC. Here's the recipe!
Authored in collaboration across the Oracle "Systems Group" team, we now have a complete best practice guide for you. Click below to download it:
Inside you'll find recommendations for how and when to leverage technologies like:
Based on following these best practices, you'll be able to construct a dynamic, virtualized infrastructure that allows for:
You should download this paper and check it out. Even if you aren't planning on buying all new hardware, and instead want to transform some existing gear into a dynamic virtualized environment then this paper will give you concrete info on what to do and the trade-offs you'll make.
Have fun getting started on your journey to build a SPARC cloud!
