Oracle on LinuxONE


Oracle Database 12c Release 1 running on Linux is available for deployment on IBM®

LinuxONE. The enterprise-grade Linux on LinuxONE solution is designed to add value to

Oracle Database solutions, including the new functions that are introduced in Oracle

Database 12c.

In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we explore the IBM and Oracle Alliance and describe how

Oracle Database benefits from LinuxONE. We then explain how to set up Linux guests to install Oracle Database 12c. We also describe how to use the Oracle Enterprise Manager

Cloud Control Agent to manage Oracle Database 12c Release 1.

We also describe a successful consolidation project from sizing to migration, performance management topics, and high availability.

Finally, we end with a chapter about surrounding Oracle with Open Source software.

The audience for this publication includes database consultants, installers, administrators, and system programmers. This publication is not meant to replace Oracle documentation, but to supplement it with our experiences while installing and using Oracle products.
