Friday Tips #11

Earlier this week, Oracle hosted a really cool event, the Virtual SysAdmin Day. If you missed it and happen to be in EMEA (or willing to stay up late in other parts of the world!), you can join the next one we're having on January 29th. You can learn all about Oracle Solaris, Oracle VM, and Oracle Linux straight from the experts here at Oracle.

During the event, one of the audience members tweeted a question about Oracle storage. We asked if we could use the question for our Friday tips series and he graciously agreed. Storage has a huge impact on the performance and cost of virtualization (both server and desktop) deployments, so we thought a short definition of Oracle optimized storage and the Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance would be in order.

Question:
What exactly is this ZFS Storage Appliance? Is it just a simulator or actual usable production appliance? 

Answer by Christopher J. Martin,  Principal Product Manager, Oracle Optimized Solutions:
The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance is Oracle’s preferred NAS storage system with unified storage capability for enterprise tier 1 environments that also simultaneously provides superior Block SAN features and performance. It offers a rich set of enterprise-class data services such as snapshots, clones and replication(local and remote) as well as industry-leading performance, and Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression- a feature for Oracle Databases.  These systems also feature a comprehensive and intuitive user interface and storage analytics environment that is unmatched in the industry in terms of its ease of use and simplicity.  This dramatically reduces management time and complexity, reducing operating expenses.  The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance offers compelling economics along with extreme performance and efficiency for enterprise storage. 

Thanks Chris!

We also covered storage briefly back in our second entry in this series where we had a question on linked clones.

Thanks for reading today. We'll be covering more storage topics in future tips as well as anything else you want to ask regarding Oracle virtualization. Just use #AskOracleVirtualization on Twitter and we'll try to get your question answered.
