Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) Benchmarking Oracle’s DBaaS against RDS – A Performance Comparison – Part II

he following Blog discusses the results of testing I/O performance of an Oracle Database running on Oracle’s Cloud X7 generation instances compared to the same database running on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The Oracle Stress Testing Tool (SLOB) was used to test the performance. The results suggest that it is possible to achieve almost double […]

OCI and AWS 10Gbit network test

n this blog we will compare the network performance of instances in OCI and AWS. The Network is a sensitive resource in multi-tenant environments, and is usually one of the first contributors leading to diminished performance when the environment is oversubscribed. In AWS there is a concept of Placement groups. Network performance is optimized between […]

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure vs AWS. NVMe SSD test for MemSQL use case – 2

One of the big use cases for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) formerly known as Baremetal Cloud is noSQL and newSQL. Oracle says what big advantage on storage layer would be PCIe based NVMe SSD with super low latency. And elimination of virtualization layer would let it shine at full. While MemSQL row store is in-memory, […]

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure NVMe SSD vs AWS local storage. Broader test.

In this blog we compared Oracle Cloud Infrastructure baremetal local NVMe SSD with AWS instance NVMe store on MemSQL use case. MemSQL load mostly concerned about concurrent writes, and relatively large reads. Thins blog will do broader test, covering most performance aspects of SSD. Will use Cloud Harmony Block storage project for benchmarking. In my opinion it is one […]
