New Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3 Proves Ideal for Backing Up and Restoring Oracle’s Engineered Systems

Protecting valuable business information has become more important than ever as data continues to grow by 40 to 50 percent per year, by some estimates. IT managers face a dilemma: how to complete backup and restore operations within shrinking windows of time while also reducing complexity, risk, and cost.

When it comes to protecting data stored in Oracle’s engineered systems, the recently announced Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3 addresses these challenges with high-performance streaming throughput and tight integration with Oracle Database that is unavailable to competitors. Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3 complements the extreme performance of Oracle’s engineered systems, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine and Oracle SuperCluster, and provides unique functionality by

  • Delivering direct high-speed InfiniBand connectivity
  • Maintaining Oracle Recovery Manager best practices without the need for risky and costly third-party backup software agents, servers, and skill-sets
  • Providing coengineered solutions such as Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression that reduce data and increase performance throughput

“Enterprises have shorter windows of time in which to complete backup and restore operations, which makes high performance essential,” says Kerstin Woods, Oracle senior principal product marketing director. “At the same time, these operations must be easy to implement and reliable, to assure that essential data is readily available if a failure occurs. Oracle’s ZFS Storage ZS3 ensures that critical service-level agreements are met and streamlines operations for greater IT productivity.”

In addition, Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances help reduce the risk of failed restores by enhancing availability with dual controllers, predictive self-healing features, and a fault-management architecture that automatically detects and diagnoses underlying problems. To ease management complexity, Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance’s DTrace Analytics feature provides an intuitive graphical user interface with which to monitor and quickly resolve performance bottlenecks during backup and restore operations.

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3 is equally effective for Oracle Database installations running on Oracle SPARC T5, M5, and M6 systems, as well as non-Oracle servers.
