REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/08/12 -- Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL)
- Enabling customers to simplify IT and better manage their storage environments, Oracle today announced Oracle's Sun Storage Archive Manager 5.3 and Sun QFS 5.3.
- With this release, Oracle is the first tape vendor to offer end-to-end data integrity validation, enabling customers to simplify and shorten the time consuming process of verifying their digital archives are uncorrupted and accessible.
- When used with Oracle's StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives, a command from SAM-QFS initiates data verification within the tape drive itself, with no need to transfer the data back to the server.
- Oracle's Sun Storage Archive Manager streamlines data management processes with policy-based storage tiering to help customers reduce storage cost and complexity. In addition to support for Data Integrity Verification in StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives, Oracle's SAM-QFS environment provides new tiered storage support with:
- Improved Windows and Mac OS interoperability via native Oracle Solaris 11 support for CIFS/SMB and NFSv4, which enhances synchronization between these environments and SAM-QFS to improve usability in heterogeneous data centers.
- Enhanced analytics with new Static Defined Tracing probes, designed to provide insight into file-level operations to significantly improve performance analysis for troubleshooting and cut time to problem resolution.
- Expanded tape drive and software support for StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives for Standard and Volsafe media, StorageTek LTO-5 with WORM media support and IBM and HP LTO-5 tape drives, as well as Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle's StorageTek Automated Cartridge System Library Software (ACSLS) 8.0.1 and 8.0.2.
- Sun Storage Archive Manager extends Oracle's leadership in providing an integrated tiered storage solution for data protection and archive with Oracle WebCenter Content, Oracle's Pillar Axiom storage system, Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, Oracle's StorageTek Tape, Oracle Recovery Manager 11g, Oracle Secure Backup and as part of the Oracle Optimized Solution for Lifecycle Content Management.
- "Oracle's comprehensive suite of storage software helps increase storage efficiency and reduce the complexity of storage management," said James Cates, vice president, Hardware Development, Oracle. "With the latest release of Sun Storage Archive Manager and Sun QFS 5.3, Oracle is delivering a number of advanced features which facilitate closer integration with Oracle software and enable customers to more effectively manage and protect their data on tape."

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 15th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Sr. Software Architect at SoftLayer, discussed how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your onlin...

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...

Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
