Database Consolidation with Oracle Multitenant and Fujitsu M10 Servers

What if you could have highly efficient and scalable database consolidation and capacity, reduce both capital and operational expense, and support rapid database instance provisioning including flexible DBaaS (Database as a Service)?

You can with the combination of Oracle Database 12c Pluggable Databases and the unique Building Block architecture and CPU core activation features of the Fujitsu M10 server. Both Pluggable Databases and hardware resources can be added and removed, plugged and unplugged, without stopping servers or services.

“Oracle Multitenant and the building block architecture and dynamic core activation of the Fujitsu M10 are a powerful combination for private or public cloud deployments where DBaaS and SaaS capacity requirements expand and contract on demand and where scale-out database deployments may grow to 100s if not 1000s of instances.” – according to the recently published Oracle Multitenant on Fujitsu M10 Server white paper. “Consolidation with Pluggable Databases using Oracle Multitenant allows organizations to reach higher levels of consolidation ratios and scalability with powerful manageability capabilities.”


Is this stuff just vaporware? No. To prove it works, my colleagues in Japan did what they call a “verification”. They used an 8 Building Block Fujitsu M10-4S server running Oracle Solaris 11.1 and Oracle Database 12c.

The chart below shows the ability to scale workload in a graceful fashion from 1 to 8 Building Blocks. But the steps don’t have to be that big. Your business may grow with finer granularity. The Fujitsu M10 server can also grow in fine increments of CPU cores.

The TPS (transactions per second) throughput increases in a highly linear fashion (red bars). A 7x TPS increase as the core count is increased from 64 cores to 512 cores is a nearly linear speedup. Concurrently with the increase in workload, the average response time (blue line) stays flat, and even decreases slightly as the system size is scaled up.


The combination of Oracle Database 12c Multitenant and Fujitsu M10 server provides a highly flexible and efficient database server environment, reconfigurable on-the-fly.
