Disclosure - EMCer here...

vFDD does that and much, much more. You nailed the high level takeaway - but it also abstracts the database access, creates a tenancy model, pools database resources, creates an API model that can be used programmatically, rich replication capabilities, accelerates ingest - oh, and also includes an optimized Postgres distribution for the times you don't want/need full blown Oracle.

Great for any customer - I would highly encourage checking it out.

For EMC customers, on top of that, did I mention that Isilon can help with database ingest from RMAN backups, and vFDD has native embedded DataDomain Boost integration? :-)

Check it out man! http://virtualgeek.typepad.com/virtual_geek/2012/06/vfabric-data-director-making-ingest-and-backup-better.html

You can not just be a regular DBA nowadays.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

  • Frequency of Updates
    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
