Running mission-critical Oracle workloads on VMware presents a unique set of challenges for VMware admins and Oracle DBAs. In particular, Oracle Database and Oracle RAC infrastructure are technologies that are extremely sensitive to being virtualized. Oracle has long been known for their complete lack of out-of-the-box technical integration with VMware, and Oracle’s solutions are painfully unaware of when they are virtualized.

Blue Medora has invested deeply over the past 3 years designing, developing, and bringing to market a portfolio of solutions that are uniquely focused on the intersection of Oracle on VMware. These include:
When running Oracle workloads on VMware, it’s an absolute requirement to have visibility into the health, availability, capacity, and performance characteristics that are unique to the intersection of Oracle running on VMware. Blue Medora continues to invest in developing products that provide both VMware vAdmins as well as Oracle DBAs (not to mention Oracle middleware and App admins) the tools they need to fully understand both parts of the ‘Oracle on VMware’ equation.
