Chapter 2 - Oracle Database Architectures

Oracle on Microsoft Windows Platforms

Although not as easily measured as performance, reliability must be considered when evaluating database architectures. In the beginning, the majority of consumers rarely considered Windows NT to be a viable alternative in this arena. Consumers’ faith in Windows reliability is growing as the Windows operating system family matures and new functionality is added by Microsoft, hardware vendors, and third-party software solutions providers. Oracle offers highly available solutions for Windows environments with its Oracle Data Guard, Oracle Fail Safe and Oracle RAC for Windows product sets.

Oracle on LINUX Platforms

Running Oracle on LINUX/Intel platforms is rapidly gaining in popularity. The Oracle Corporation is fostering LINUX’s credibility as a mission-critical operating system by being the first vendor to market both an enterprise relational database and an enterprise application server for the operating system.

Oracle, Dell and Red Hat have formed a partnership to to enhance the LINUX/Intel environment in the areas of performance, reliability, clustering, and manageability. The three partners are collaborating to develop and market enterprise-ready LINUX solutions based on Dell PowerEdge Servers, Dell/EMC and PowerVault storage systems, Oracle Database Release 2 with Real Application Clusters, and Red Hat LINUX Advanced Server.

Oracle also provides direct support for the Red Hat LINUX Advanced Server operating system. Oracle customers who use the Red Hat LINUX Advanced Server operating system will be able to call Oracle support for both LINUX and Oracle issues.
