Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage 7420 appliance sets a new standard in enterprise NAS with best-in-class efficiency with Hybrid Columnar Compression. It delivers the scale and functionality that enterprises demand combined with easy, appliance-based setup and administration that simplify management and lower TCO.
|Only NAS platform with Hybrid Columnar Compression||
Dramatically lowers storage footprint, cost, and complexity, and provides 3x to 5x higher efficiency on Oracle Databases
|Hybrid Storage Pools||
Built-in tiered storage with automated data placement across DRAM, Flash, and disk
|DTrace storage analytics||
Intuitive, visual analysis of performance and capacity for rapid troubleshooting and simplified management.
|Advanced data services||
Inline deduplication and ZFS compression save on space and cost in storage consolidation and virtualization environments
|Multi-protocol and connectivity support||
Seamlessly integrates any into any file or block environments, including iSCSI, InfiniBand, and fibre channel
|ZFS file system||
Provides advanced error detection, self-healing, triple-RAID parity and triple-mirroring for high availability.
|Best-in-class hardware architecture||
Better storage consolidation and overall performance, with 10x more memory cores than NetApp FAS 3270 and up to 3.4 PB of raw capacity
|2x better SPC-1 IOPS performance and price/performance with the Sun ZFS Storage 7420 M2 Appliance* than NetApp FAS 3270A** in SAN environments||
Fewer and smaller storage devices needed to support business critical databases and applications, resulting in lower TCO
Faster Oracle Database backup and recovery and superior streaming performance for Exadata backup and recovery
|Better price-performance - 4x than NetApp on Exadata Backup and Restore and 2x better* than NetApp FAS 3270A** SPC-1 in SAN configurations||
Lower total cost of ownership
