Oracle and the Sun Storage 7000 at Oracle Open World

Today at Oracle Open World Jeff Wright and Sridhar Ranganathan gave a terrific presentation on how to best deploy the Oracle database with the Sun Storage 7000 series. Their work provided a great demonstration of the power of the Hybrid Storage Pool and Analytics — two key differentiators in the 7000 series. The performance numbers they presented were both impressive and act as an important guideline for those seeking to deploy a similar configuration. For even more details, check out Jeff and Sridhar's Blueprint on the same topic.

If you're at the conference, drop by the Sun booth where members of the Fishworks team will also be dropping by to answer questions and give demonstrations.
