Oracle unveils software system for database-level storage
By Digital News Asia December 31, 2014
- Oracle ZFS Storage software integrated with analytics for pluggable DBs
- Customers can accelerate application performance, company claims
ORACLE Corporation has launched its Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4, which it said delivers new capabilities for Oracle Database 12c environments.
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 is built on the industry’s only in-memory, DRAM-based (dynamic random access memory) ‘hybrid storage pool’ architecture and multi-threaded symmetric multiprocessing OS (operating system) to provide up to 90% of system I/O delivered from memory, Oracle said in a statement.
As a result, customers can significantly accelerate application performance, the company claimed.
Oracle’s vice president for storage software Scott Tracy (pic) said that Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 extends Oracle Database with unparalleled visibility into its performance and storage requirements.
“With analytics for pluggable databases, self-tuning capabilities and policy-based deep compression to maximise infrastructure investments for Oracle Database 12c, organisations can further accelerate their time-critical business decisions,” he said.
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 provides pluggable database-level visibility and at the same time, the Oracle storage solution turbocharges greater amounts of data at in-memory speeds, doubling the performance of its predecessor, Oracle said.
ZFS Storage ZS4-4 has more DRAM than most NAS (network-attached storage) systems have in flash, the company claimed.
“Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 reinforces the fact that Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances are the only NAS option for Oracle Database 12c customers who want the speed, efficiency and manageability that comes with co-engineered hardware and software,” Tracy declared.
