EMC Adds Flash to Oracle Apps

SAN FRANCISCO -- EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), today announced a solution that incorporates EMC Symmetrix® DMX-4 storage systems using enterprise flash drive (EFD) technology with Oracle Database Applications to significantly improve application performance. This new solution is the first of its kind to offer the applied use of EFDs for specific Oracle application environments. Because EFDs store data using flash memory, they can provide response times that are an order of magnitude faster than the fastest traditional hard disk drives, are a cost-effective alternative to using expensive SDRAM-based EFDs or I/O accelerators, and are ideal for Oracle application environments with high transaction rates.

“Flash-based storage technology is ideal for Oracle Database 11g and Oracle RAC 11g application environments that require the fastest retrieval and storing of data,” said EMC’s Barbara Robidoux, Vice President, Storage Product Marketing. “EMC has invested engineering resources to analyze and document the use cases and provide best practice recommendations to reap the maximum return on investment. Our customers can now enjoy performance gains, consolidation in terms of the number of disks required and dramatic cost savings through reduced power consumption.”
