The new application protects mission critical application information from corruption, eliminating potential costs and downtime
EMC has joined forces with Emulex and Oracle to introduce a new Data Integrity application that offers customers with enhanced protection from silent data corruption in mission critical environments.
The new Data Integrity application, which is certified by EMC E-Lab, is based on the T10 Protection Information (T10 PI) industry standard for data integrity validation.
Integration with the T10 PI standard, will enable the EMC, Emulex and Oracle data integrity application protect mission critical application, information from corruption, eliminating potential costs and downtime, the company said.
The T10 PI standard prevents silent data corruption and ensures that incomplete and incorrect data cannot overwrite good data, providing an extra tool to help companies comply with data integrity mandates.
With the new application, Oracle defines and develops technologies to prevent silent data corruption and safeguard data integrity.
Through Oracle Linux with the default Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, many features that are relevant to Linux running in the data centre protects information in the application.
Emulex has implemented the T10 PI standard on its Emulex LightPulse 8Gb Fibre Channel (8GFC) and 16GFC Host Bus Adapters (HBAs) with its BlockGuard data integrity offload technology for enhanced data protection.
EMC VMAX is an enterprise storage array to join together with Emulex and Oracle in implementing T10 PI.
The data protection information generated by Oracle Automatic Storage Management will be validated by the Oracle Linux operating system, then passed on to the Emulex HBA, and the EMC VMAX array, enabling protection throughout the I/O stack.
