  1. Mandip BhullerFastest ROI: Linux RAC clusters Oracle Corporation

  2. “I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones ….” Linus Torvalds Usenet posting, 1991

  3. Enterprise Linux “Today Linux has become the hottest thing in corporate America since e-mail…For some companies, the gains from converting are so large that CIOs get giddy talking about it.” • Fortune, Oct 2002

  4. Only Linux is Growing Estimated Growth of Server OS Market 2002 - 2006 58% Percentage Growth -4% -18% -25% -48% Source: IDC 2002

  5. Business Landscape • Customers require more ROI than their existing investments • Must provide more scalable, available solutions and yet REDUCE costs • Support and maintenance costs for larger SMPs are relatively expensive • Pace of technology change is increasing • Reaching max of current SMP machine requiring a much large server frame and more $$$ • Too many servers, too expensive, hard to manage

  6. Oracle Applications onLinux: Faster and Cheaper List Price CPU’s/Computer CPU Speed Phys.Memory Average Resp. Time 90% Resp.Time Intel/Linux 2 2.4 GHz 6 GB 1.3 sec 2.2 sec $8,860 RISC 2 750 MHz 8 GB 1.7 sec 3.8 sec $53,330 Running Oracle Applications Standard Benchmark for 251 Concurrent Users Now getting to about 5 times cheaper and three times faster for compute

  7. Drive towards technology • Need for a common infrastructure that allows organic / GRID computing • Leverage resources for other projects • Simpler to create server pools for all applications • Need more scalable and available software to glue common hardware together • Cannot change existing applications • Will not be locked into any particular technology • Must reduce management costs and server costs • Drive towards LINUX and RAC • In only 3 years taken 13.7% of $50.9 B server market

  8. Is Linux ready for companies? • DiamlerChrysler uses it in car crash sims. 20% faster 40% cheaper than Unix • Morgan Stanley replacing 4K servers running other O/S and saving $100M over 5 years • Over 700 eBusiness suite Linux customers • Electronic arts found that a 2 proc Intel was equivalent to a 4 proc SMP. 10:1 price diff • Cnet got great performance and then sold it’s SMP machines on ebay for more than the Intel ones cost to buy! • LINUX is new (10yrs) and volatile but RAC helps

  9. Oracle’s Commitment toLinux: Products Every Oracle Product Runs on Linux Today

  10. Oracle in the Linux Community • Integrated Development and Support • Oracle, Red Hat and United Linux development teams integrated in a non-exclusive partnership • Oracle contributes to Linux kernel code • Quality Assurance • Oracle QA now part of Red Hat and United Linux development process

  11. Open-source Contributions • Established Linux kernel team making contributions to open-source under GPL • Oracle Cluster File System • Worked with Red Hat, SuSE and the open source community to drive features into Linux • Improved I/O throughput • Improved memory utilization • Improved SMP scalability • Graceful degradation under load

  12. Oracle’s Commitment toLinux: Customer Support • Direct support of Linux worldwide • Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS and ES • UnitedLinux • Single point of contact for support • Single point of solution for support • No additional Oracle support contract required

  13. Oracle’s Commitment toLinux: Security Submitted for EAL2 Defining the path for EAL4

  14. Linux: Oracle’s Choice “We run our whole business on Linux.” Lawrence J. Ellison Oracle Corporation, 2003

  15. Internal Use of Linux at Oracle • Key internal systems migrated to Linux • • Oracle Files Online • Oracle demo systems • Oracle outsourcing systems • Oracle financial systems • More planned

  16. Linux + Oracle + RAC • Linux could be considered younger than other more mature operating systems • Rapid rate of addition although it’s reaching a level of maturity • Better and better enterprise support from vendors • Scaling to 4 Procs 2.4 and > 8 with kernel 2.6 • Oracle RAC provides the mainframe stability and scale out for apps beyond 4 procs

  17. RAC delivers unprecedented performance and scalability RAC is the premier high availability database RAC runs all applications out-of-the-box and unmodified Bottom line: RAC reduces IT costs. Use all nodes. Nothing wasted Key 9i RAC Messages

  18. What is RAC? • Start small, pay as you grow, unlimited headroom • Works with ALL applications • Simplified management to rapidly add servers and disk • Use with Linux, HP, IBM, Sun, Windows NT

  19. Merrill Lynch FAA Acuity Lighting (Formerly Lithonia) Dell IT AusRegistry CERN Electronic Arts Texas Tech University Ellis Island Shell Embry Riddle German Police Sikla Many more… Oracle9i RAC on Linux Customers

  20. Hot Failover Transparent Application Failover Warm Failover Cold Failover Restart RAC availability

  21. Grow your DATA Grow your USERS Grow PROCESSING POWER Oracle9iRAC is Scalability Users

  22. Only cluster database that scales out-of-the-box Oracle9i RAC is Scalability Grow your DATA Users Grow your USERS Cache Fusion Grow PROCESSING POWER Shared Cache Cache Fusion: Superior Performance of a SHARED CACHE

  23. Why RAC? • Benefits of added scalability and added availability when you add extra nodes. Flexible. • No need for ANY application changes to run RAC • Data is shared amongst all the nodes in the cluster • Any application on any node sees all the data • When a node crashes no data is lost • Workload is partitioned automatically across the available nodes • Add and remove nodes flexibility. Runs of all major platforms. Grow with demand. Saves cost

  24. RAC Today • Over 200 production reference customers. • Across all common hardware platforms. • 10i RAC version released • Wide delivery of Consulting accelerator services • Addition of cluster file systems • Certification of common platforms and applications • Single most scalable platform for enterprise solutions. Scale on demand and manage effectively. • Widely being used by gaming companies now. Electronic Arts, Sony online entertainment and others.

  25. Some RAC References • Acxiom – World leader in multi-channel customer data integration • Austrian railways- Austrian Railways is the state-owned railroad of Austria • British Telecom – World leader in communications • Freemarkets– Connecting buyers of goods and services. Moved into production in less than a week! • Electronic Arts– Sims online. 20 clusters, 5 nodes, 300K SQL/s • Sony Entertainment – Large SMP clusters, scaling and HA • SAS – Statistical Analysis Software • SITA– State information technology agency • UPS – Leader in transportation of goods. 16K tps • Vector SCM– Track cars from plant to dealer
