Data Protection for Windows Environments with Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance
Protect data, reduce infrastructure costs, improve productivity, and simplify data center management
Microsoft applications are pervasive in the enterprise data center. Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance ensures interoperability with all Microsoft applications and is certified on the Microsoft Hardware Qualification List and the Microsoft Exchange Solution Review Program (ESRP), which facilitates third-party storage testing and solution publishing for Microsoft Exchange Server.
Oracle makes it easy for system administrators to deploy, provision, and manage storage. A head-to-head comparison conducted by the Edison group showed that the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance took 36% less time to manage, 45% less time to configure, and was 38% easier to provision than competitive systems. What’s more, Microsoft application-related storage workload issues can be observed and profiled, thanks to DTrace Storage Analytics, which displays specific issues that might be hindering performance. These include overtaxed disks and files, an offending database client, real-time disk capacity and CPU utilization, and numerous other metrics.
