Oracle has unveiled its NxG Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line, which includes management software and a storage pool architecture that has been integrated with Oracle Applications, Fusion Middleware, Database, Solaris, Linux and VM.
The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line provides three new integrated data protection offerings for Oracle Applications: RMAN backup optimises backup with Sun ZFS Storage Appliances, Database Cloning increases database performance by integrating Sun ZFS Storage Appliances with Data Guard, and Fusion Middleware simplifies disaster recovery with ZFS Storage Appliances.
The company said that the new product line ranges from entry-level configurations starting at 12 TB to high-end systems that support more than 1 PB of storage capacity.
It can simultaneously run all major block and file protocols, and includes a complete suite of data services.
The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line has been integrated with Oracle’s business software and combines in-line deduplication and compression built into the unified storage controller.
In addition, it features end-to-end data and metadata checksums, self-healing data technology and triple-parity RAID.
The storage controllers enable Sun ZFS Storage Appliances to support a mix of file and block level access for Windows and UNIX data.
Oracle Server and Storage Systems executive vice president John Fowler said that next-generation Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line delivers more than 2x the scale of the previous generation and increase integration with Oracle’s business-critical applications.
