We are planning to deploy SAP on oracle
We have vitualized our environment using VMWARE ESX 5.1
For the database we are to decide whether to go for VMFS / ASM. It is learnt that from Oracle 11g R2 onwards raw disk is desupported
If we deploy on ASM diskgroups, will vMotion happen ? Are there any other issues ?
Kindly share docs/advice regarding the above issue as well as best practices to be followed
Go with a 100% fully supported configuration per Oracle support's recommendations.
Anything less puts your organization at risk.
Ask EMC about vMotion ... but I'd be far more concerned with having a fully supported environment than the tool(s) providing the virtualization.
