    VBLOCK SPECIALIZED SYSTEM FOR HIGH PERFORMANCE DATABASES HIGH PERFORMANCE AND FLEXIBILITY FOR THE MOST DEMANDING DATABASE ENVIRONMENTS High-volume online transaction processing (OLTP), online analytical processing (OLAP), and other critical database-driven applications such as business intelligence and data warehousing place enormous demands on your IT infrastructure. The Vblock Specialized System for High Performance Databases is specifically designed for your most demanding, performance-based environments.

    The unique architecture of Vblock Systems delivers high performance in the millions of IOPSwith millisecond response times, continuous availability, and exceptional flexibilityfor enterprise applications such as Oracle. The systems support single or multiple databases as well as individual and mixed workloads. And you can count on Vblock Systems to provide an excellent total cost of ownership.

    Extending the VCE Experience to Database-driven Applications The Vblock Specialized System for High Performance Databases is part of a broad portfolio of systems built on the worlds most advanced converged infrastructure from VCE. In a Vblock System, compute, network, storage, and virtualization technologies are seamlessly integrated so the system can be deployed, provisioned, operated, and supported as a single entity.

    This results in faster implementations with lower risk for your most demanding target use cases. It also allows your infrastructure and application teams to be more productive with the hours they save. And because many organizations are standardizing on Vblock Systems converged infrastructure, running your large database environments on the systems avoids creating another data center silo.

    Best-of-breed TechnologyVblock Systems integrate the Cisco Unified Computing System with Intel Xeon processors, storage from EMC, and virtualization technology from VMware or others into a single system.

    Pre-engineered, Tested, and ValidatedEvery Vblock System is pre-engineered and validated in a VCE factory environment, where it can be configured and optimized for any combination of individual or mixed workloads.

    Integrated Data Protection and MobilityVblock Systems offer available backup and recovery, automated replication, and workload mobilityall with the goal of delivering continuous availability.

    Comprehensive ServicesVCE can help you develop a cloud computing roadmap, and deploy and integrate your systems quickly to ensure operational success. Post-deployment, VCE Support proactively identifies and resolves issues to simplify the support experience and further reduce risk.

    Vblock Specialized System for High Performance Databases: Key Capabilities and Benefits Built to PerformEvery Vblock

    Specialized System for High Performance Databases is built to handle your most demanding OLTP and OLAP requirements. Need millions of IOPS? Millisecond response times? Continuous availability? Super scalability? You can rely on your Vblock System.

    Flexibility for Any WorkloadSupport a single target database-dependent application or consolidate multiple databases or mixed workloads. Efficiently provision environments for production, QA, and test/development simultaneously. You can even run multiple copies of the same database in different locations.

    Keep Pace with Business GrowthThe modular architecture and built-in scalability of Vblock Systems is designed for efficient, affordable growth. Lifecycle planning from VCE makes it easy to handle upgrades and patches. And your Vblock System offers additional flexibility, with support for multiple virtualization hypervisors, including VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Oracle VM.

    Drive Down your TCOArchitectural flexibility, simplified provisioning, and robust virtualization dramatically reduce your TCO and help you cost-effectively meet business-critical service-level agreements (SLAs). Vblock Systems consolidate your existing databases and applications into a more efficient, virtualized environment. And fewer physical cores can mean lower licensing costs and help to significantly reduce your operating expenses as well.

    Count on Continuous Availability and Trusted SecurityVblock Data Protection provides a proven portfolio of integrated data protection options to support your rigorous business requirements or most stringent SLAs. Choose from highly reliable backup and recovery with sophisticated inline deduplication to maximize the use of your valuable storage resources. Or safeguard your most mission-critical applications with EMC VPLEX Oracle-certified Real Application Clusters (RAC) for true business continuityresulting in lower risk and five 9s of availability. For security, Vblock Systems are hardened based on vendor best practices and can be configured to meet compliance objectives for the most demanding and sensitive environments.
