Running Oracle 11g on Oracle Linux in a VMWare container
Posted on 2009-07-02
I'm interested in folks experience with a combination of Oracle 11g running on Oracle Linux 4.7 in a VMWare container. We are considering running with this architecture in production but I'm concerned that Oracle would prefer not to support VMWare. We will only be running one VM container per server. I'm not looking to virtualize my entire production environment on to one giant server, I will be running one container per server. I'm looking to use VMWare as a psuedo cluster set up. Should one of my servers (physical hardware) fail I would then use VMotion to move the virtual container to another server. Has anybody had any experience with this type of setup?
