  • Announcing Oracle's Next-Generation Application Engineered Storage
    Growing databases. Storage sprawl. IT staff spending more time manually tuning storage. Demands for faster response times. Costs exceeding budgets. Do those challenges sound familiar? They should if you’re still using application-unaware, conventional storage. Oracle’s next-generation Application Engineered Storage solutions is the only storage co-engineered to work with Oracle Database and Oracle Applications. Get ready to meet our newest storage products that can help your enterprise increase application performance, while reducing sprawl and complexity.
  • Oracle Announces Record Breaking Technology for Digital Archives
    The explosive growth of digital content combined with new compliance and data retention requirements is driving the need for comprehensive, long-term strategies for digital archiving. Hear how to store exabytes of data on a system that is easy to access and manage, while also lowering the TCO of long-term archives. Learn how Oracle is broadening the adoption of tape storage in markets with large content assets, such as media and entertainment, healthcare, oil & gas and large-scale cloud deployments.
  • Storage and Applications Engineered Together. Oracle Has It, NetApp Doesn't
    Today's modern, Oracle data centers are demanding more than general purpose NetApp storage can deliver. After all, it's no longer enough to simply get raw performance, capacity, and data protection from your storage. To really improve application efficiencies, optimize performance, and ultimately lower storage costs, built-in integration from the storage layer up through the database and application stack is essential. In this webcast, Marc Staimer of Dragon Slayer Consulting discusses with Oracle storage executives how Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance uniquely delivers this integration - and, how NetApp doesn't. We'll look specifically at the innovative features and functionality that you can use to compare Sun ZFS Storage to NetApp filers, and the benefits you can achieve with a move to Oracle.
  • Is Unstructured Data Mission-Critical?
    With the advent of unstructured data sources, many enterprises are finding their data models are broken and their ability to implement analytics, except on standalone systems, at a standstill. The analytics systems of the future will be integrated and end-to-end. They will deploy purposed-aligned storage, recognize data retention needs, and align those needs with cost. This webcast will discuss an integrated end-to-end data model, its implications on data center storage systems and networking, and how we expect this model to evolve in the near future to allow Oracle customers to optimize the value derived from all of their data.
  • Taming the Digital Media Explosion – How One Customer Delivers Archive-as-a-Service
    The explosive growth of unstructured data combined with new compliance and data retention requirements are injecting change into enterprise strategies for long term data storage. In this webcast we will discuss what factors in the enterprise business ecosystem are driving the need for comprehensive, long-term digital archiving strategies.

  • Rethink Your Data Storage with the Oracle Pillar Axiom - The Intelligent Alternative to EMC
    For organizations running Oracle software, the Pillar Axiom 600 is an ideal fit for consolidating storage for multiple Oracle Databases or Oracle Applications. It is also a good choice for EMC Clarion customers nearing the end of a lease agreement. Rather than upgrading to the EMC VNX product family, this is the perfect juncture to make the switch to Oracle's Pillar Axiom 600.
  • Accelerating Database Development & Testing with Oracle Storage
    Cloning your databases for recovery, development, test, and quality assurance can be demanding on your storage infrastructure. Learn how Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance helps you create, test, develop and recover databases quickly and safely - using minimal storage.
  • Improve Database Capacity Management with Oracle Storage and Hybrid Columnar Compression
    Dave Krenik, Storage Solution Specialist and Mark Mulligan, Exadata Pillar Specialist discuss how Oracle's hybrid columnar compression (HCC) feature - which is now supported on Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance and Pillar Axiom 600 - can help customers better manage the lifecycle of data using in-database archiving for OLTP databases and data warehouses. Using Hybrid Columnar Compression in these environments, customers can achieve 3x to 5x reductions in their storage footprints, energy usage and cost by replacing existing EMC and NetApp SAN and NAS storage with Oracle storage solutions.
