Oracle De-support Dates

So what does this mean?

• If you are on 9i then you should now start planning your


upgrades to 10g or even 11g

• If you are on 10g, then you should purchase Extended Support


or upgrade to 11g

Migration Reasons

• OS Migrations
– Moving to new servers (e.g. IBM Power4 to Power6)
– RAC or Virtualized environments
• Change Hardware Vendor
– Moving
g to lower-cost OS ((Unix to Linux))
– Moving to virtualized environment
• Oracle migrations
– Expired support on older versions cost prohibitive
– Need new features/functionality in newer versions
• Application Migrations
– Upgrading the application to a newer version
– May co-inside with a hardware and or database upgrade

Migration Lifecycle

Database
b
– Toad DBA Suite, for daily database administration, diagnostics and tuning
– Space Manger with LiveReorg to identify fragmentation, IO contention and determine if
optimization is required during migration.
– Foglight Performance Analysis establishes an activity profile for current database
performance

• Load Testing new hardware/database


– Benchmark Factory stress tests database,
database hardware and SQL on the new environment
with virtual users.

• Migrate to new hardware/database


– SharePlex allows you to migrate/upgrade databases with near-zero
near zero downtime and
provides instant regression capabilities

• Monitor hardware/database post upgrade


– Foglight for Oracle’s database monitoring alerts you to any issue post migration.
– Spotlight on Oracle’s provides real-time diagnostics to identify root causes
– Foglight Performance Analysis identifies any performance issues and advises on how
to improve the database configuration or identifies bad SQL for tuning. It also
compares the activity profile pre-upgrade with post-upgrade activity to identify
differences in performance and quantify the impact of the migration changes
changes.

Traditional Oracle Migrations Methods
• Export / Import or Data Pump
• Pro – Simple, cross platform regardless of db version
• Cons - Requires downtime, slow (Data Pump Considerably faster but requires 10g),
regression = restore backup

• Database upgrade wizard


• Pro – no extra hardware/resources required
• Cons – In place, downtime required, downgrade scripts unreliable

• Cold Copy
• Pro
o–SSimple,
p e, Fast
ast
• Cons – Requires downtime, restricted to same platform, regression = restore backup

• Manual Scripts, Transportable Tablespaces


• Cons - DBA requires expert knowledge of application, Requires downtime, regression =
restore backup

• Online Backup (Mirror/RMAN/Dataguard)


• Pro – Online, from 10g cross platform
• Cons – restricted to same platform unless migrating from 10g (downtime required to
upgrade db), regression = restore backup

Why Oracle Migrations with SharePlex
• Downtime is Eliminated
– Migrate platforms (hardware, storage, database, applications) without unnecessary downtime
• To date, never saving less than 90%
• Averagingg g 94%
– Database upgrade process is eliminated
– File transfer time is eliminated
– For cross platform migration as export/import is offloaded from production

• Risk is Eliminated – Safer Migration Path


– Zero Data Loss (fail-back configuration)
– Migration Failures are Downtime-Free (users stay online)
– Migrate during business hours with full support
– Repeatability on production
– Test and verify target over weeks, if required

• Total Cost is Reduced


– Downtime saved
– Out of hours working
– Not migrating

18
SharePlex - Business Continuity for Oracle

• Reduce planned downtime for


– OS upgrade/migrations
– Oracle upgrades
– Application Patching
Source Target

• Database Support
– Oracle 8i, 9i,10g & 11g Both RAC and non-RAC
– Standard Edition
– Enterprise Edition

• Platform Support
– Sun Solaris (SPARC & x86)
– HP-UX (PA-RISC & Itanium)
– Compaq
p q Tru64
– IBM AIX
– Windows 2000/2003/2008.
– Linux RHEL, SuSE, OEL (x86 & Itanium)
