Storage Portfolio:Oracle is a Storage Company

Not all data is created equal. As data ages it is not utilized as often and so it makes pure financial sense to offload less accessed data to cheaper storage media and it can improve performance of the overall system when your primary systems are not weighted down by stale data. The alignment of different categories of data to different types of storage media directly reduces cost and effectively manages large volumes of data.
To meet those intensive data demands, tiered storage is a critical approach for storage success. Tiered storage aligns the value of your data assets with the most appropriate storage media in order to reduce cost and effectively manage data throughout it’s lifecycle.

Flash Storage World’s fastest, most efficient Flash Array
Sun F5100 Flash Array
Over 1 million IOPS in 1RU (1.75 inches) Equivalent of 3000 FC Disk drives in 1RU
Up to 1.92TB of flash storage capacity, uses only 300 watts of power
Accelerate database performance by 2x, while reducing energy consumption by up to 100x

Unified Storage: 7000 series Best Storage Efficiency
Only Storage Appliance with Hybrid Storage Pools (HSPs)
Data is intelligently and automatically migrated between DRAM, Flash and Disk
Continuously optimizes storage system performance and efficiency
Simplifies management, transparently managed as a single storage pool

”…Hybrid Storage Pools provide quite a lot of cache-speed (or near cache-speed) access to our Oracle data…HSPs were very important in our decision to go forward with the purchase of those machines.”
– David Robillard, UNIX team leader & Oracle DBA, Notarius

Best TCO Oracle’s Multi-tiered Solution Delivers >50% Better TCO
“Our return on investment is instant, because it would have cost us $14 million to make videotape copies. The Sun solution is saving us $6 million. We plan to completely replace and recycle existing tapes every three years, and even doing that, this solution is far less expensive than any other.”
– Sam Gustman, CTO, USC SHOAH Foundation

Highest Scalability Oracle StorageTek Libraries Scale 5X the Competition
“The SL8500 that we have today is the maximum in a single frame, but the SL8500 works where you can stack them side by side and the (tape) can actually go from one frame to another,” State of Tennessee’s Max Arnold said. “So it’s hugely scalable.”
– Storage Magazine, Sep. ’09

So, instead of keeping your growing database on a single tier of storage, Oracle is able to move the data to the most appropriate storage tier and we have both the software and hardware capabilities to bring you the entire solution from a single vendor. And because the tools you use are inherent to the database today you can do it all non-disruptively.

Using Oracle ILM with partitioniong, Oracle DB will run faster with much lower cost. Cost savings are not just on storage hardware but energy and space savings in the data center

Customer reaction
“NetApp heard about this deal and came to me and said they would 1) lower the price, 2) give free installation, 3) and free training. I said, ‘you don’t get it,’ with this box I don’t need any installation help or training for me or the extended team.”
“…as soon as the storage arrived onsite a couple weeks ago we racked it – installed the latest software – and moved it to our DR site all configured. We have already migrated a bunch of data…and backups are already running to it from production. From installation to implementation – very smooth with no current issues.”
