FREMONT, Calif. -- 3PAR, the leading global provider of utility storage, announced today support for Oracle® Database 11g, the latest release of Oracle’s popular database. 3PAR’s shared commitment to simple, efficient, and scalable storage for Oracle Database environments delivers compelling advantages for joint customers. Organizations using Oracle and 3PAR to support mission-critical applications are able to leverage both technologies for greater storage utilization and administrative efficiency.

High, Predictable Levels of Service

Oracle Database 11g allows users to meet service level requirements more easily and dependably. The 3PAR InServ® Storage Server delivers extremely high and predicable I/O to Oracle applications by balancing workloads autonomically over all available resources within the system at all times. Because of this, concerns around storage planning, configuration, and layout are virtually eliminated. 3PAR InServ Storage Servers, with their tightly-coupled, clustered architecture, deliver seamless and massive scalability in a cost-effective form factor. 3PAR customers are able to start and grow non-disruptively in small affordable increments of capacity and performance.

Thin, Single Instance Storage for Maximum Utilization

Oracle Database 11g’s partitioning and compression permit users to lower the cost of storage in Oracle environments. 3PAR allows customers to drive storage costs down further with its unique thin technologies and in-the-box tiering capabilities. 3PAR Thin Provisioning and thin copy offerings, including 3PAR Virtual Copy and 3PAR Remote Copy, allow users to purchase storage capacity only for written data. Unused but allocated array capacity, which can be very large with traditional storage arrays, is nearly eliminated by using 3PAR’s thin technologies. 3PAR customers can also optimize utilization with the ability to support the complete online data lifecycle from a single, affordable pool of storage. With 3PAR, users can avoid managing and provisioning multiple storage devices and silos of capacity to meet different price/performance levels.

“3PAR's support for Oracle Database 11g demonstrates our commitment to delivering a simplified database storage management environment with 3PAR Utility Storage,” said David Scott, President and CEO of 3PAR. “Customers can benefit from reduced database and storage management effort, faster database performance, and high levels of storage utilization.”
