Oracle Database Migration to IBM Power and AIX

Reduces the cost of licenses, equipment and processors. Consolidate your environments. Improve the performance and security of your databases.

IBM and Oracle were (and still are, albeit less publicly) great technology allies. Tens of thousands of Oracle databases are running on IBM AIX worldwide, accompanied by more and more new open database deployments such as Enterprise DB / PostgreSQL on Red Hat and SUSE Linux.

The Power10 servers in question have a performance of up to 800GB/s of bandwidth between sockets and memory and a performance per core between 2 and 4 times higher than x86. If we add to this the 8 threads of execution (SMT8) and the fact that Oracle is licensed per processor, the math seems clear..

In addition, the PowerVM hypervisor allows you to assign the exact capacity needed by each of the virtual processors, avoiding exceeding existing licenses and allowing you to share (and use) all your capacity in the most efficient way possible.

Oracle at Power is compatibility, security and performance.

Oracle in Power equals security. With no exploitable vulnerability detected in the PowerVM hypervisor since its release more than 20 years ago and the ability to encrypt all data including memory, performance (up to 8 threads per core), unmatched performance thanks to an architecture where there are no bottlenecks between sockets and memory and full compatibility with all versions of Oracle including the future 21c.

A roadmap that goes beyond 2024

It is never too late to use AIX, whose confirmed roadmap goes beyond 2040 to continue to support the most critical database environments with levels of security, reliability, performance and manageability that are still far behind GNU/Linux alternatives, ideal for smaller relational databases, open source or new in-memory database environments such as HANA.

Free license audit and viability analysis

By deploying Oracle on Power you can achieve significant savings in both the HW required and licensing. Request a free, no-obligation assessment. We will demonstrate with data how much you can save by migrating from Solaris / Sparc or Exadata with OracleLinux to AIX on IBM Power.

IBM certified servers to virtualize as many Oracle instances as you need

IBM markets 2-socket, 24-core S1024 servers with 512GB to 8TB of RAM designed to consolidate Oracle databases and save a lot of money on licensing. These databases can run on AIX, our preferred operating system for Oracle and with the highest levels of stability, performance and security. If you plan to migrate from Oracle to Enterprise DB / PostgreSQL you can also do it on Red Hat and SUSE Linux or any of their free sister distributions such as Alma Linux and Rocky Linux.

Easy migration from x86 and sparc to ppc64 / pppc64le

If you already have Oracle on x86 (Windows, Solaris or Linux) or SPARC (Solaris), the migration to Power is very easy. At Sixe we teach you how to do it or if you need it, we help you with our professional services and subsequent preventive maintenance and technical support.
