Zeynep Koch
Global Director of Marketing, Linux and Virtualization

Nimble
Storage today
announced a new SmartStack™ converged infrastructure solution leveraging Oracle
Linux
, Oracle VM, and Oracle Database, running on Cisco Unified Computing
System™ (UCS). This solution provides
organizations with the ability to meet Oracle Database performance demands and
scale without disruption or increased capital expenses.

Highlights
of the SmartStack Validated Reference Architecture with Oracle

The
new solution is fully tested and validated using both Oracle Validated
Configuration test kit and Nimble Storage’s test environments.

- The
solution components include a Nimble Storage CS-series array, two Cisco UCS
B200 M3 blade servers, Oracle VM 3.2, Oracle Linux 6 Update 4 with the
Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and Oracle
Database 12c.

Nimble
Storage’s intelligent flash-based architecture allows customers with Oracle
workloads running on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM to take advantage of:

- Adaptive
performance to easily grow performance and/or capacity to scale to the needs of
OLTP and OLAP applications as they grow

- Ease
of deployment with pre-configured optimizations and performance profiles to
minimize the guesswork of tuning the infrastructure for performance

- Integrated
data protection and enhanced availability enabling organizations to take more
frequent backups without disrupting applications, and facilitate quick recovery
with Nimble Storage snapshots

Nimble Storage will exhibit its flash-optimized
hybrid storage arrays and new converged infrastructure solutions at Oracle
OpenWorld 2013 taking place September 22 – 26 at Moscone Center in San
Francisco.  You can check Nimble Storage solutions in the Oracle Linux and Virtualization Pavilion - booth #2021.
