Storage Solutions

Oracle’s storage solutions are not only engineered to enable Oracle software to run faster and more efficiently (Oracle ZFS storage), they also offer unsurpassed capabilities for heterogenous environments (Pillar Axiom).

The Oracle ZFS storage product line delivers enterprise-class network attached storage capabilities that are tightly integrated with Oracle software solutions to deliver outstanding performance, efficiency, and total cost of ownership.  For organizations with large volumes of data, the tight integration between the Oracle Database and Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance through Hybrid Columnar Compression delivers 3x-5x better storage efficiency. Add to this the use of Hybrid Storage Pools that automate the use of DRAM, flash caches, and disk drives to deliver exceptional performance, the Oracle ZFS storage appliance should be at the top of your list when looking to optimize your data storage requirements.

The Oracle ZS3 series is here. It’s the most powerful NAS storage system on the market, with 4-6x better performance than competitive systems in heterogeneous environments and even more in an Oracle infrastructure.

Need better performance from your NAS systems? Oracle designed the ZS3 series to accelerate database responsiveness and complex data queries while minimizing backup windows. It includes intelligent management software that migrates data automatically between DRAM, flash and disk storage to provide almost instantaneous results, even on complex queries. The result? The ZS3, a NAS appliance that beats every comparable system on the market, hands down.

Efficiency is another big storage issue for many companies. They’re not willing to keep throwing more hardware at the problem – especially when budgets are tight.  Did you know that 87% of storage costs are due to inefficient systems or software? Oracle ZS3 resolves this with real-time performance analytics. These monitor data usage in real time and the ZS3 tunes itself accordingly, dramatically reducing human intervention and the TCO per system. In fact, customers can cut administrative costs by up to $28,000 per system per year by switching from NetApp to Oracle ZS3.

The Oracle ZS3 is engineered to work with Oracle Database, producing ultra-fast query performance and data warehouse compression. Its advantages for Oracle Database customers include Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol (OISP) that cuts storage/database tuning time in half; and Automatic Data Optimization that regulates data availability and compression depending on usage frequency.

Oracle ZS3 for Oracle Database: they’re a powerful partnership!
