Many customers run their production Oracle databases within VMware vSphere virtual machines to support critical and demanding applications. The performance of these Oracle databases can be key to the success of daily operations. 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 œMonster 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.
