    Oracle on windows virtualizing

    DSRSAS Enthusiast



      I am new to oracle, One of my client has a requirment to virtualize oracle 11g database on windows 2008 R2. I am checking about this on the net and have got confused by the oracle licensing. I am not sure if it will work porperly if virtualize it. The server on which ESX will be installed is  three Dell R710 with 2 quard core Xeon processors with 64GB Ram each.

      I need some guidence on how do i proceed with the licensing and the best installation practice so that the cost is minimised and the performance objective is also met.  The client has around 20 users who will be using the database and the application.


      Is it possible to use the advantages like Storage Vmotion, Vmotion, DRS, HA , FT with oracle VM.
