Hello Jeff,

Just about to vritualise around 50 Oracle instances onto a couple of Sun X4270's with EMC Clariion SAN running with 8Gb FC ports.

Never thought about using NAS, FC more the standard here.

All seven of our oracle databases running in VMware. They range from Windows 2000 to Windows 2008 and from to The largest is about 160 GB.

Saw you at vmworld - great presentation again this year. Look forward to seeing you at OOW.

We've virtualized all of our Oracle database servers. That involves 6 instances including PROD of Oracle e-Business suite (11i w/11g), Oracle standby DBs for Discoverer reporting, Oracle enterprise manager, an Oracle instance for a tax package called sabrix, an Oracle instance for a tax package for taxstream, 2 environments for EquityEdge (stock tracking system), 2 environments of Oracle Hyperion (PROD and DEV), Oracle Email center (part of Oracle E-Biz), Oracle Wireless (part of Oracle E-biz)

Almost all of this stuff is tied in a CX3 and we do array based replication to our DR site and use recoverpoint and replication manager and are implementing SRM. A couple of the dev environments are using local storage on some stand alone ESX boxes.

2) No EMC NAS with Oracle.
