Green/Grid Computing

> Database > Oracle Database

The Oracle Grid Computing architecture can improve energy efficiency and data center productivity, making a “greener” data center. Some of the enabling functionality includes the following:

  • Server virtualization and consolidation using Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Application Server clusters, and Oracle VM save energy and lower system management overhead.
  • Storage virtualization consolidation using Oracle Automatic Storage Management and Oracle Advanced Compression can save energy because companies that use fewer disks will consume less power. More-centrally managed storage also means less administrative overhead.
  • Application consolidation using a global single instance implementation of enterprise applications results in energy and hardware savings and a better quality of service, more-accurate and up-to-date information, and reduced systems management overhead.
  • Workload management using Oracle Enterprise Manager allows companies to manage spare capacity to provide more processing power to development, test, and production systems.
