Chapter 8 Extending Oracle Private Cloud Appliance - External Storage

Extending the Oracle Private Cloud Appliance (PCA) by connecting and configuring additional external storage can enhance the product by providing the disk space required for large repositories, for backup and recovery storage, and to provision virtual machines with virtual disks beyond the capacity already available on the appliance. This process does not require that the system is powered down, but cabling and configuration must match the exact requirements set out in this section.

The Oracle PCA can support additional Fibre Channel or InfiniBand storage devices connected to the Fabric Interconnects, depending on the technology required. This chapter describes how to extend the appliance for each of these different technologies.
