Storage from A to ZFS

By David Baum
Most business users don’t spend much time thinking about storage. They follow a few simple guidelines and expect their critical information to be saved, backed up, and duplicated. The vast storage infrastructure that automates these activities is largely behind the scenes. Yet as the demand for information grows, so do storage infrastructures. Strategic storage solutions—from tape libraries to flash and disk arrays to unified storage—can simplify the essential tasks of storing and managing enterprise data management. Find out how Novant Health and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology manage terabytes of new data every day with business-ready storage systems from Oracle.

  

Rise of the Machines

By David Baum
Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud is the world’s first engineered system specifically designed for implementing a private cloud computing environment that can host everything from small-scale departmental applications to large-scale enterprise resource planning systems. Since its debut at Oracle OpenWorld in September 2010, Oracle Exalogic has changed the cloud conversation as organizations explore how they can take advantage of this unique middleware machine. And the perfect datacenter partner for Oracle Exalogic? Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Together, these standards-based, engineered systems deliver extreme performance for data warehousing and online transaction processing applications. Read why PHH Corporation is consolidating disparate technology stacks into a shared services environment anchored by Oracle Exalogic and Oracle Exadata.
