VMware vSphere 6 and Oracle Database Scalability Study

Version 1

    VMware conducted a series of tests to demonstrate the performance and scalability of large virtual machines on vSphere 6 running Oracle Database 12c. Using a transactional workload, it was found that a single large “Monster” virtual machine can efficiently use an entire current-generation four-socket server. These results demonstrate that even very large and demanding Oracle database workloads can be successfully run with excellent performance with vSphere.
