To simplify deployments and accelerate backup and recovery time
Oracle has unveiled three new integrations in support of its open, integrated technology suite Sun ZFS Storage Applaince at SNW Spring 2011.
Oracle has enhanced its backup and recovery capabilities for Exadata Database Machine, Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, which now directly connects to Oracle Exadata InfiniBand fabric to simplify deployments and accelerate backup and recovery time.
The Virtual Desktop Infrastructure provides integration with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance with rapid iSCSI provisioning that automates desktop provisioning and accelerates virtual desktop deployments, said the company.
Oracle Secure Backup is qualified for Sun ZFS Storage Appliance backup and recovery with the company's scalable StorageTek tape libraries. It does this by bringing together unified storage backup performance and tape to simplify tape-based data protection with an end-to-end offering that reduces backup and recovery windows for Oracle Database and non-database information.
The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line includes management software and an innovative hybrid storage pool architecture. It is also integrated with the company's Applications, Fusion Middleware, Database, Solaris, Linux, VM, and SPARC servers to provide optimal business system performance.
In addition, the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance delivers 1.6x greater density, offers nearly 2x higher performance on backup and recovery for Oracle Databases, and because it does not require additional data movers, it is able to exploit the native toolset of Oracle Recovery Manager to further shorten backup and recovery windows, the company claimed.
Oracle said that the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line simplifies deployment, troubleshooting and administration of storage for cloud computing with high throughput.
Oracle flash and disk products head Scott Tracy said the company's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance delivers value for customers on three major fronts: management, with DTrace Analytics and Hybrid Storage Pools, a highly-scalable architecture using integrated flash combined with the Solaris OS, and seamless integration with Oracle applications.
"Engineered with Oracle software, the Sun ZFS Storage appliance offers customers a mature storage offering they can trust," Tracy said.
