Would you like to split up a Sun server to deploy multiple Oracle environments, with each one isolated and behaving like a separate box? This whitepaper covers how to create virtualized Oracle servers utilizing Solaris Zones and make them completely portable, even to another data center.
The solution is accomplished with the Solaris OS, Oracle RDBMS, and Symantec (Veritas) Storage Foundation HA/DR. The portable “Oracle zones” are storage and replication-method agnostic, and the database files are “wrapped” so they can even be transported to other *nix platforms for backup or migration purposes.
