U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs migrates applications to a private cloud, selects FlashGrid Storage Fabric to enable shared storage for Oracle RAC.

A major applications and solutions provider approached FlashGrid Inc when they had to migrate an application they were hosting for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs from a traditional data center to a private cloud. The application was using Oracle RAC for its backend database. The private cloud was based on VMware Director and provided advanced VM and networking capabilities. However, the cloud lacked the shared storage capability required for running Oracle RAC. The FlashGrid Storage Fabric software was used to create highly available shared storage seamlessly integrated with Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM).

FlashGrid Storage Fabric enabled migration to the private cloud without sacrificing the database high availability provided by Oracle RAC.
