EMC Announces New Multi-Protocol Storage Solutions for Oracle OLTP and Reference Configurations for Oracle Data Warehouse.
EMC Corporation ,the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced new EMC Proven Solutions and reference configurations that help customers
more efficiently and cost effectively deploy an EMC information infrastructure in Oracle transaction processing and data warehousing environments. Customers can more easily map the most appropriate storage platform to the Oracle use case at the lowest cost by taking advantage of EMC's tiered storage. The combination of industry-leading EMC and Oracle technologies, joint testing and new customer-focused technical documentation speeds and simplifies deployments of Oracle on EMC network
For Oracle OLTP environments, new solutions based on EMC Symmetrix(R) provide additional high performance, scalable infrastructure options for enterprise Oracle(R) Database deployments. New solutions based on EMC Celerra(R) NS Series multi-protocol storage platform unify production and development/test environments with disaster recovery for consolidated Oracle midsize enterprise environments. These new solutions complement the existing Oracle OLTP solutions based on EMC CLARiiON(R) and expand EMC's portfolio of Proven Solutions for Oracle OLTP.
Detailed best practices and reference architectures for Oracle OLTP solutions enable customers to take advantage of the optimized use of EMC's broad portfolio of information infrastructure, including:
-- Combined use of FC, NFS, and iSCSI protocols together with tiered
storage within the platform optimize storage infrastructure for
different classes of Oracle data files, recovery logs and flashback
-- EMC writeable snapshots leveraged with EMC Celerra to speed Oracle
Database development, test and migration as well as backup/recovery.
-- EMC RecoverPoint provides heterogeneous remote data replication for all
business-critical information as well as data compression for advanced,
cost-effective disaster recovery.
For Oracle data warehouse environments, EMC has partnered with Oracle
to expand upon efforts within the Oracle Optimized Warehouse Initiative.
Complementing previously released optimized configurations with Dell, EMC
and Oracle have developed new configurations based on Intel dual core and
servers and EMC CLARiiON CX3 networked storage systems. Through using
optimized configurations, costumers can leverage pre-installed,
pre-configured solutions to help reduce the purchase cycle and streamline
data warehouse deployments.
EMC and Oracle have also documented a series of flexible configurations
based on Symmetrix and CLARiiON for Oracle data warehousing deployments,
helping customers balance cost with performance and growth at any scale of
Oracle data warehouse deployments. This includes support for Oracle
deployments in both "scale-up" SMP computing models or "scale-out" Oracle
low -cost Grid Computing models on Linux. Joint EMC and Oracle efforts
provide customers different sized configurations for a stated workload
requirement based on IBM, HP, Sun or Intel-based server environments.
"EMC and Oracle have a longstanding partnership with deep engineering
alignment. Development of solutions that optimize EMC information
infrastructure and Oracle technology enables our joint customers to easily
and rapidly deploy EMC solutions to accelerate the time to experience ROI
benefits," said EMC's Ritu Jyoti, Senior Director, Technology Alliances.
"The new EMC solutions specifically tailored for Oracle OLTP environments
drive efficiencies around unified tiered storage, backup and recovery,
advanced data protection."
"Many customers rely on Oracle and EMC technologies for scalable, high
performance data warehouse infrastructure," said Stephen Boyle, vice
president, Global Platform Alliances at Oracle. "Through our various
efforts with EMC, together we can offer our joint customers a full
complement of solutions suited for different profiles. Customers can select
the one that best suits their business and price, performance
