CTO Clears Away the FUD Surrounding Virtualizing Oracle Workloads

Dave Welch, CTO and Chief Evangelist with House of Brick Technologies, clears away the misinformation surrounding the virtualization of Oracle Database and Oracle applications. While virtualization has taken over most applications in the data center, Oracle continues to be the exception. And the reason for the slow virtualization adoption is the inaccurate information floating around. As an Oracle expert, Dave clears away the fog of misinformation.


“With the help of House of Brick and VMware Professional Services, we have been able to virtualize our most demanding Oracle databases on X86 servers. Where initially we believed that these databases would be too demanding for a virtual machine, we now have the confidence that vSphere can handle our largest transaction-processing databases with ease.”
