When preparing for a Oracle DB virtualization project…..

……read “Virtualizing Oracle Databases on vSphere” from VMware Press!

It is well written and managed to maintain my focus throughout the whole book. Probably one of the better books I have read on virtualization….9/10.

I am currently planning to virtualize a large Oracle database environment from an old HA cluster to a new VMware vSphere environment.

The book gives you loads of valuable information on what to look out for and different settings to give attention to. It also has a brilliant performance tuning chapter (but don’t thing this book will turn you into a performance tuning god) that gives you loads of stuff to help you maintain your performance while migrating over to your new fancy virtualized infrastructure.

The book will get a spot on my table until this project will be finished.
