Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA from Acardia


New High-Availability Database Appliance

Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA takes advantage of Oracle Database in an easy-to-deploy and manage system that supports virtualization. It is ideal for database and applications workloads that require no single point of failure.

The Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA is an Oracle Engineered System that saves time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance, and support of high availability database solutions. Optimized for the world’s most popular database— Oracle Database—it integrates software, compute, storage, and network resources to deliver high availability database services for a wide range of custom and packaged online transaction processing (OLTP), in-memory database, and data warehousing applications. All hardware and software components are engineered and supported by Oracle, offering customers a reliable and secure system with built-in automation and best practices. In addition to accelerating the time to value when deploying high availability database solutions, the Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA offers flexible Oracle Database licensing options and reduces operational expenses associated with maintenance and support.

Fully Redundant Integrated System

Providing access to information 24/7 and protecting databases from unforeseen as well as planned downtime can be a challenge for many organizations. Indeed, manually building redundancy into database systems can be risky and error-prone if the right skills and resources are not available in-house. The Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA is designed for simplicity and reduces that element of risk and uncertainty to help customers deliver higher availability for their databases.

The Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA hardware is a 6U rack-mountable system containing two Oracle Linux servers and one storage shelf. Each server features two 10-core Intel® Xeon® processors E5-2630 v4, 256 GB of memory, and 10-Gigabit Ethernet (10GbE) external networking connectivity. The two servers are connected together via a redundant InfiniBand or optional 10GbE interconnect for cluster communication and share direct-attached high performance solid-state SAS storage.

The storage shelf in the base system is half populated with ten solid-state drives (SSDs) for data storage, totaling 12 TB of raw storage capacity. The storage shelf in the base system also includes four 200 GB high endurance SSDs for database redo logs to improve performance and reliability.

The Oracle Database Appliance X6-2-HA runs Oracle Database Enterprise Edition, and customers have the choice of running single-instance databases as well as clustered databases utilizing Oracle Real Application Clusters (Oracle RAC) or Oracle RAC One Node for “active-active” or “active-passive” database server failover.
