OTS' experiences with all-flash technology mirror what many customers have experienced over the past several years. Hesitatingly optimistic, OTS deployed its first AFA in a limited environment to prove the system out, and when it performed and/or exceeded the company's expectations, it quickly started moving more workloads to it over time. Like OTS, many customers do not immediately retire their legacy storage, but in moving the more demanding workloads off of their existing environments, they provide better application performance both for those applications on the AFA and for those that stay on the legacy storage. And like OTS, the majority of AFA customers have in the past year in particular come to the conclusion that all-flash technology is the future of primary storage for performance, reliability, ease of management and expansion, and economic (as measured by total cost of ownership) reasons.

NetApp Flash Pool is a storage cache option within the NetApp Virtual Storage Tier product family, available for NetApp FAS storage systems. A Flash Pool configures solid state drives (SSDs) and hard disk drives (HDDs) into a single storage pool, known as an “aggregate” in NetApp parlance, with the SSDs providing a fast response time cache for volumes that are provisioned on the Flash Pool aggregate. In this lab evaluation, NetApp commissioned Demartek to evaluate the effectiveness of Flash Pool with different types and numbers of hard disk drives using an online transaction processing (OLTP) database workload, and to evaluate the performance of Flash Pool in a clustered Data ONTAP environment during a cluster storage node failover scenario. In the report, you’ll dis cover how Demartek test engineers documented a 283% gain in IOPS and a reduction in latency by a factor of 66x after incorporating NetApp Flash Pool technology.

In today’s highly distributed, multi-platform world, the data needed to solve any particular decision making need is increasingly likely to be found across a wide variety of sources. As a result, traditional manual approaches requiring prior collection, storage and integration of extensive sets of data in the analyst’s preferred exploration environment are becoming less useful. Data virtualization, which offers transparent access to distributed, diverse data sources, offers a valuable alternative approach in these circumstances.

For more than a decade, Oracle has developed and enhanced its ZFS Storage Appliance, giving its users a formidable unified and enterprise-grade storage offering. The latest release, ZS7-2, boasts upgraded hardware and software and is a timely reminder that more users might do well to evaluate this offering. It has a trifecta of advantages: (1) It’s notable performance, price-performance, and flexibility are all improved in this new release (2) There is a surprisingly inclusive set of functionalities, including excellent storage analytics that were developed even before analytics became a contemporary “must-have” (3) There’s a compelling group of “better together” elements that make ZFS Storage Appliance a particularly attractive choice for both Oracle Database environments and users that want to seamlessly integrate a cloud component into their IT infrastructure. Given the proven abilities of Oracle’s prior models, it’s also safe to assume that the new ZS7-2 will outperform other m

The NetApp flash portfolio is capable of solving database performance and I/O latency problems encountered by many database deployments. The majority of databases have a random I/O workload that creates performance problems for spinning media, but is well-suited for today’s flash technologies. NetApp has a diverse enterprise-class flash portfolio consisting of flash in the storage controller (Flash Cache™ intelligent caching), flash within the disk shelves (Flash Pool™ intelligent caching), and all-flash arrays (EF-Series and All-flash FAS). This portfolio can be used to solve complex database performance requirements at multiple levels within a customer’s Oracle environment. This document reviews Oracle database observations and results when implementing flash technologies offered within the NetApp flash portfolio.

The rise of virtualization as a business tool has dramatically enhanced server and primary storage utilization. By allowing multiple operating systems and applications to run on a single physical server, organizations can significantly lower their hardware costs and take advantage of efficiency and agility improvements as more and more tasks become automated. This also alleviates the pain of fragmented IT ecosystems and incompatible data silos. Protecting these virtualized environments, however, and the ever-growing amount of structured and unstructured data being created, still requires a complex, on-prem secondary storage model that imposes heavy administrative overhead and infrastructure costs. The increasing pressure on IT teams to maintain business continuity and information governance are changing how businesses view infrastructure resiliency and long-term data retention—they are consequently looking to new solutions to ensure immediate availability and complete protection of the
