Oracle VM support

Post by tdavis » May 25, 2012 6:27 pm

Hi Gostov,

I work for Oracle VM team and would like to have some discussions around Veeam support of Oracle VM. We have some customers using your solution and would like to understand better Veeam. Can you contact me offline to discuss this? I believe there are some great opportunities wrt to Oracle VM customers using Veeam.
Thanks.
Ted

Ted and Gostev, I work for a company who use OVS in house and are pushing it to our clients. Can you give any updates or expectaions on if\when Veeam will work with OVS and OVM? Having used Veeam previously in VMWare environments I'm keen to deploy it as part of an end to end solution for ourselves and clients.

Cheers
Chris

Hi Chris, we are not planning on adding support for any other hypervisor in foreseeable future. Thanks!

[MERGED] OVM hypervisor support

Post by ashleyw » Mar 20, 2013 8:49 am

Hi, we have a number of Oracle workloads that are not possible to cost effectively host under Vmware due to partitioning rules around Oracle licensing. Oracle won't budge on licensing so we are forced to run Oracle workloads under OVM as Redhat/Centos OVM VMs with partitioning of cpu cores to match Oracle licensing.
Long term we are trying to pusuade all our partners to develop software in a database agnostic fashion, but we are stuck with OVM and Oracle DB and Oracle middleware for the long haul unfortunately.

As Veeam have done a great job of integrating Hyperv into the B&R product, have they considered adding OVM into the mix?

This could have favourable significant DR licensing impacts as well as consolidating the product stacks at a backup layer.

Come on Veeam - we know you want to!

Hello Ashley,
Thank you for this post, and your feedback!

As far as I can see there were several requests on the OVM (as well as for other hypervisors) and it is considered to be interesting request, so its definitely under the scope of the Veeam R&D team. Unfortunately it would not be included to B&R next major release however it might be included in the future. How soon? ETA is only based on the customer’s request like yours today, so thank you for this input again!

If it helps I'll add my vote for this as it would really help a proposal we are currently working on. With Oracle's licensing schemes and increasing core count in CPUs it would seem this would become more prevalent.

We are joining the club of those who "have the choice" of:

* host Oracle on non-standard (gimped) dedicated servers
* Pay Oracle $2M for licensing because they don't play nice with VMware....
* starting to use Oracle VM

Obviously everyone would be a lot happier if Oracle relaxed their licensing to include VMware's technology approach for CPU assignment but hell is more likely to freeze over sooner.

If Veeam could put Oracle VM on their roadmap that would help a lot to ease the pain.

Count us in!

As others have stated, we are moving to OVM due to licensing of Oracle on VMWare.

Having the ability to integrate Veeam with OVM would be AMAZING

It seems that adding support of Oracle VM to Veeam would be a great help to many - please consider this.

Please consider this as a vote.

We too have OVM and ASM running in a separate Hypervisor environment due to licensing.
Although the Linux Agent is getting better, it would be better to have it done at the Hypervisor end with easier Oracle Database backup options all through one interface.

Here another vote for Oracle Vm support !

Not that we're happy that we have to use OVM because of the licensing issue's, but veeam support could ease things a bit....
