Oracle Database 12c Release 1 running on Linux is available for deployment on the IBM ZTM
family of servers. The enterprise-grade Linux on IBM Z solution is designed to add value to
Oracle Database solutions, including the new functions that are introduced in Oracle
In this IBM Redbooks® publication, we explore the IBM and Oracle Alliance and describe how
Oracle Database benefits from the IBM Z platform. We then explain how to set up Linux
guests to install Oracle Database 12c. We also describe how to use the Oracle Enterprise
Manager Cloud Control Agent to manage Oracle Database 12c Release 1.
We also describe a successful consolidation project from sizing to migration, performance
management topics, and high availability.
Finally, we end with a chapter about surrounding Oracle with Open Source software.
The audience for this publication includes database consultants, installers, administrators,
and system programmers. This publication is not meant to replace Oracle documentation, but
to supplement it with our experiences while installing and using Oracle products.
