oracle 11g standard on vmware, or physical server?
Posted on 2011-09-27
Hi, will need to setup an oracle database server soon, and I've heard conflicting views from different people in regards to installation on a VM, instead of a physical server.
Are there performance considerations when running Oracle on a VM, versus running it on physical hardware?
The application accessing the DB is not going to be very demanding, but if there are specific metrics I can request from the application vendor about the database performance, I can ask them and post another message here with their response
Also we only expect to have 6 to 12 users in the next year.
My vmware setup consists of 2 esxi hosts and a sas 6gb san, they are quite underutilized at the moment.
