Sun ZFS Storage Appliance Software

Integrated Software Suite for the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance Product Line
Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance product line comes with an integrated set of software that helps reduce the cost and complexity of managing business-critical storage. A powerful suite of software is available on all Sun ZFS Storage Appliances, and enables a broad set of solutions, including backup, virtualization, database consolidation, application infrastructure, file sharing, and disaster recovery.

AT A GLANCE

  • Real-time storage profiling using DTrace Analytics
  • Automated data movement across storage tiers with Hybrid Storage Pools
  • Advanced error detection and self-healing capabilities
  • Industry-leading data protection with triple-parity RAID and triple mirroring
  • Built-in, inline deduplication with ZFS compression
  • Thin provisioning
  • Rich suite of connection protocols and networking technology
  • Unlimited snapshots and cloning
  • Remote data replication for disaster recovery
  • Active-active clustering for high-availability (standard with Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage 7720 appliance, and optional on the Sun ZFS Storage 7320 and 7420 appliances)
  • Shadow data migration
  • NDMP backup and restore

ONLY ORACLE OFFERS SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS

Capability Benefit Result
Real-time storage profiling with DTrace Analytics Understand and manage the performance of storage resources from the user, file, and system perspective Accelerate business performance by getting the most out of your storage and application investments
Automated movement of data across storage tiers with Hybrid Storage Pools Cut overall storage hardware costs (including power and cooling) by 50% or more without adding administration overhead Meet data-growth requirements with existing budget, while still meeting SLAs
Industry-leading data protection with triple-parity RAID and triple mirroring Maximum data availability and performance in the presence of multiple drive failures Minimize the risk of application outages and maintain performance with industry leading data protection
Thin provisioning Maximum data availability and performance in the presence of multiple drive failures Minimize the risk of application outages and maintain performance with industry-leading data protection
Built-in support for CIFS, NFS, iSCSI, fibre channel, and Infiniband Supports wide range of storage protocols without additional software licenses Reduce cost and complexity using common platforms and storage management tools for different application requirements and deployment scales across the enterprise
Unlimited, space-efficient snapshots ZFS snapshots are extremely space-efficient, minimizing creation time and increasing the potential frequency and number that can be created Quickly create data copies for development purposes or recover from unintentional data loss
Remote replication of data for disaster recovery Creates a copy of a group of file systems or LUNs between systems at remote locations Reduces application recovery time in case of a complete loss of data since business-critical data can be accessed from an online mirror
