Faster Oracle performance with IBM FlashSystem

Faster Oracle performance with IBM FlashSystem

Cover

Unfortunately, additional processing power alone will do little or nothing to improve Oracle performance. Over time, processor speeds have progressively increased at a geometric rate. At the same time; however, conventional storage access times have only improved marginally. This has resulted in a massive performance gap, felt most painfully by database servers, which typically carry out far more I/O transactions than other systems.

Super-fast processors and massive amounts of bandwidth are often wasted as storage devices take several milliseconds just to access the requested data. Implementing flash storage helps accelerate the most resource-intensive data that slows performance across the board.

This comprehensive white paper discusses methods for identifying I/O performance bottlenecks, and it points out components that are the best candidates for migration to a flash storage appliance. An in-depth explanation of flash technology and possible implementations are also included.
