Disclaimers and Support Notes

Delphix Support Policies specifically list major and minor release coverage. If a minor release is listed as covered, all patch releases under that minor release are certified. Support applies to corresponding versions of Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS) / Oracle Linux (OL), 64-bit OS support only. 

The Oracle version in the support matrix applies to both Oracle DB and Oracle Grid. Delphix supports the same set of features and functionality for supported non-multitenant database versions. Currently, Delphix does not support the Oracle 12c feature of THREADED_EXECUTION being set to TRUE, because this disables OS authentication.

Summary of Delphix features that are unsupported for the Oracle12c and higher Multi-tenant configuration:

  • Existing Virtual Container Database (vCDB) as target for provisioning an additional vPDB
  • Customize VDB settings/initialization parameters. Includes the following:
    • Customize init.ora database parameter during provisioning
    • Config templates
    • Online redo log size
    • Number of RAC VDB instances
    • Online redo log groups
    • Archive log mode
    • Setting new DBID
    • Customize local listeners
  • Virtual to Physical (V2P) Support
  • Resumable initial SnapSync
  • Validated Sync
  • Source continuity for dSource upgraded from Oracle 12c non-multitenant to multitenant database
  • Cross-platform provisioning (XPP) to the virtual database
  • Oracle LiveSources

Delphix supports systems that are part of an Exadata or Exadata Cloud-at-Customer (ExaCC) cluster, provided that the operating system and DBMS version are in the supported list. Oracle Exadata, Exadata Cloud, and Exadata Cloud-at-Customer (ExaCC) offer several features that are reliant on the underlying Exadata storage. Delphix supports creating dSources from Exadata source clusters and provisioning VDBs and vPDBs to Exadata target clusters.

The following Exadata-only features will not be available in child VDBs running in Delphix storage:

  • Smart Scan - allows SQL processing to be offloaded to Exadata storage cells. Queries that leverage Smart Scan will execute successfully in VDBs but query performance may be impacted.
  • Smart Flash Cache -  allows frequently used data blocks to be stored in the flash cache of Exadata storage cells to allow for faster access. Queries against objects that are normally cached in Smart Flash Cache will execute successfully in VDBs but query performance may be impacted. As the virtualization engine uses memory to cache frequently used data blocks, allocating extra memory to the engine may help to mitigate this performance impact.
  • Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC) - compresses data and stores it in a columnar format, allowing Exadata storage cells to deliver faster query performance while also saving on storage. Columns compressed using HCC cannot be used by queries executed in VDBs. Affected columns can be decompressed though care should be taken to evaluate the impact of doing so on VDB refresh times and Delphix storage usage. In Delphix VDBs, queries against partitions or tables using HCC will fail with the following error "ORA-64307: Exadata Hybrid Columnar Compression is not supported for tablespaces on this storage type".
