News Facts

Oracle today announced its Sun ZFS Storage Appliances earned the highest overall scores in the six-year history of Storage magazine’s Quality Awards for NAS, for both enterprise and midrange NAS.
Oracle bested the competition in initial product quality, features, reliability, technical support and received high marks for sales force competence.
In its analysis of the results, Storage magazine noted, “Oracle Corp. storage users are apparently the most satisfied among the legions of NAS users,” and reported that 97 percent of Oracle enterprise NAS users surveyed would buy again.
Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliances deliver enterprise-class NAS capabilities to more than 3,000 customers and are ideal for enterprise applications, virtualization, cloud, storage consolidation, and data protection.
Oracle’s Sun ZFS Storage Appliances are the only NAS products engineered together with Oracle Applications, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Database, and Oracle’s SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, and are optimized for Oracle VM and the Oracle Exadata Database Machine. Engineered integration enables Oracle software to run fastest and most efficiently on Oracle storage.
The Storage magazine Quality Awards are designed to identify and recognize products that have proven their quality and reliability in actual use. The results are derived from a survey of qualified Storage/SearchStorage.com readers who assessed products in five categories: initial product quality, features, reliability, technical support and sales force competence.
