HOPKINTON, Mass., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- EMC Corporation, the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announces new EMC Proven(TM) solutions to enable more efficiency for Oracle database environments of all sizes. These reference architectures and best practices provide predictable results, higher return on investment and leverage the latest EMC tiered storage platform innovations for virtualization together with VMware vSphere 4 and Oracle VM. Now customers can take advantage of the powerful benefits of virtual servers, virtual storage tiering and virtual storage provisioning in their Oracle and EMC information infrastructure environment.
As customers' Oracle deployments continue to grow, there is an increased need to drive greater operational and cost efficiency across their information infrastructure. Virtualization deployed across multiple layers of the Oracle information infrastructure drives consolidation, increased utilization of infrastructure resources, and improved Oracle data mobility. The new EMC Proven solutions provide customers targeted use of virtualization to bring tangible efficiency benefits to Oracle environments including:
- Consolidation of infrastructure for virtual Oracle environments leveraging EMC Symmetrix V-Max(TM), EMC CLARiiON and EMC Celerra networked storage platforms and combinations of enterprise flash drives (EFD), fibre-channel and SATA drives.
- Optimized use of tiered storage in virtual Oracle environments through non-disruptive virtual LUN migration as well as virtual provisioning, allowing cost-effective sharing of EFD across multiple Oracle databases
- Simplified and improved disaster recovery combining with VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager and EMC replication software for higher availability of virtualized Oracle environments.
"Utilizing VMware technology is helping our IT organization drive higher levels of utilization and maximize cost efficiency," said Doug Babb, United States government defense contractor and Chief IT Systems Architect, Systems Implementers Inc. "We are pleased to see EMC investing to develop new solutions that leverage the virtualization capabilities of their storage platforms together with VMware for Oracle environments to help customers more quickly enjoy the benefits of virtualization."
"Customers want to gain critical IT efficiencies across their information infrastructure and many are looking to deploy virtualization technology to achieve this," said EMC's Todd Pavone, Vice President, Global Solutions. "EMC understands this desire and continues to invest in reference architectures and best practices that enable customers to accelerate virtualizing their mission critical applications like Oracle to take advantage of the cost benefits this provides."
