Dell and EMC have partnered to develop low-cost, high-performance and easily scalable platforms in support of Oracle® Optimized Warehouse Initiative (OWI) for enterprise and midrange Oracle environments.

Using a combination of technology, the Dell and EMC alliance gives you access to solutions with maximum functionality and value for the storage demands of your business.

Low-Cost Modular Building Blocks

The Dell/EMC platform delivers a balanced set of optimized components that are flexible enough to accommodate changing requirements. The platform includes:

  • Oracle Database Enterprise Edition with Automatic Storage Management (ASM) and the Oracle Partitioning option
  • Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC)
  • Dell PowerEdge™ servers
  • Dell/EMC CX4 networked storage and Navisphere® Manager

Seamless Scalability

The modularity of the Dell/EMC data warehouse platform for Oracle enables easy scalability. As your needs grow, you can add components that feature:

  • Oracle RAC clusters — with two or more Oracle databases together — along with two or more Dell PowerEdge servers and Dell/EMC CX4 array
  • Oracle ASM to incorporate new storage logical units (LUNs), expand the ASM disk group and rebalance the I/O (input/output) workload with no user impact
