Enterprises Around the World Are Choosing Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA for Reliable Backup and Recovery

Customers across a broad range of geographies and industries are adopting Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances for backup and recovery of Oracle's engineered systems. These adoptions are being spurred by the new Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3 solution for backup, Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA, which gives enterprises a preconfigured solution coengineered with Oracle Database and engineered systems for rapid backup and restore performance, and efficiency for meeting stringent service-level agreements (SLAs).

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA offers total cost of ownership that is five times lower over three years than EMC Data Domain for Oracle's engineered systems data protection.

Performance to Meet Tough SLAs
Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-BA helps enterprises meet backup and recovery SLAs by scaling to 26 terabytes per hour (TB/hr) for full backups, and 17 TB/hr for full restores. These rates represent a 30 percent increase for backups and 80 percent increase for restores over the previous generation solution.

The appliance speeds database backup and recovery performance through a massive cache-centric architecture (using both DRAM and Flash resources), as well as a symmetric multiprocessing operating system and other advanced technologies.

In addition, the appliance is the only network-attached storage product with direct InfiniBand connectivity to Oracle's engineered systems' own InfiniBand backplanes, which enables 40 gigabit per second (Gb/sec) throughput speeds versus the 10 Gb/sec speeds of competitors.

The Answer for Agility and Availability
In São Paulo, Brazil, Hospital Alemão Oswaldo Cruz chose Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance because of its efficient large-capacity storage capabilities, and because the solution is integrated with Oracle Exadata. "The overall Oracle Exadata/[Oracle] ZFS Storage [Appliance] solution has not only improved our ability to deliver high-quality healthcare services, but also provides the high availability, agility, and data protection to support our operations," says Denis da Costa Rodrigues, manager of information technology at the hospital.
