for Oracle SE2 HA on GCP
FlashGrid Storage Fabric software turns locally attached disks into shared disks accessible from both nodes of the cluster. The sharing is done at the block level with concurrent access from all nodes.
Each database node has a full copy of user data stored on locally attached Persistent SSD disks. FlashGrid Read‑Local™ Technology allows serving all read I/O from the locally attached disks and increases both read and write I/O performance. Read requests avoid the extra network hop, thus reducing the latency and the amount of the network traffic. As a result, more network bandwidth is available for the write I/O traffic.
FlashGrid Cloud Area Network™ (CLAN) enables running high-speed clustered applications in public clouds or multi-datacenter environments with the efficiency and control of a Local Area Network.
Network capabilities enabled by FlashGrid CLAN on GCP:
“We had to migrate dozens of mission critical Oracle RAC databases from Exadata to AWS with FlashGrid, and were able to do it without sacrificing performance or availability.”
