EMC Helps Oracle Customers Drive Cost Efficiency and Simplify Deployment


EMC Announces New Multi-Protocol Storage Solutions for Oracle OLTP and Reference Configurations for Oracle Data Warehouse
HOPKINTON, Mass. - June 2008
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced new EMC Proven Solutions and reference configurations that help customers more efficiently and cost effectively deploy an EMC information infrastructure in Oracle transaction processing and data warehousing environments. Customers can more easily map the most appropriate storage platform to the Oracle use case at the lowest cost by taking advantage of EMC’s tiered storage. The combination of industry-leading EMC and Oracle technologies, joint testing and new customer-focused technical documentation speeds and simplifies deployments of Oracle on EMC network storage.

For Oracle OLTP environments, new solutions based on EMC Symmetrix® provide additional high performance, scalable infrastructure options for enterprise Oracle® Database deployments. New solutions based on EMC Celerra® NS Series multi-protocol storage platform unify production and development/test environments with disaster recovery for consolidated Oracle midsize enterprise environments. These new solutions complement the existing Oracle OLTP solutions based on EMC CLARiiON® and expand EMC’s portfolio of Proven Solutions for Oracle OLTP.

Detailed best practices and reference architectures for Oracle OLTP solutions enable customers to take advantage of the optimized use of EMC’s broad portfolio of information infrastructure, including:

Combined use of FC, NFS, and iSCSI protocols together with tiered storage within the platform optimize storage infrastructure for different classes of Oracle data files, recovery logs and flashback data.
EMC writeable snapshots leveraged with EMC Celerra to speed Oracle Database development, test and migration as well as backup/recovery.
EMC RecoverPoint provides heterogeneous remote data replication for all business-critical information as well as data compression for advanced, cost-effective disaster recovery.
For Oracle data warehouse environments, EMC has partnered with Oracle to expand upon efforts within the Oracle Optimized Warehouse Initiative. Complementing previously released optimized configurations with Dell, EMC and Oracle have developed new configurations based on Intel dual core and servers and EMC CLARiiON CX3 networked storage systems. Through using optimized configurations, costumers can leverage pre-installed, pre-configured solutions to help reduce the purchase cycle and streamline data warehouse deployments.

EMC and Oracle have also documented a series of flexible configurations based on Symmetrix and CLARiiON for Oracle data warehousing deployments, helping customers balance cost with performance and growth at any scale of Oracle data warehouse deployments. This includes support for Oracle deployments in both “scale-up” SMP computing models or “scale-out” Oracle low –cost Grid Computing models on Linux. Joint EMC and Oracle efforts provide customers different sized configurations for a stated workload requirement based on IBM, HP, Sun or Intel-based server environments.

“EMC and Oracle have a longstanding partnership with deep engineering alignment. Development of solutions that optimize EMC information infrastructure and Oracle technology enables our joint customers to easily and rapidly deploy EMC solutions to accelerate the time to experience ROI benefits,” said EMC’s Ritu Jyoti, Senior Director, Technology Alliances. “The new EMC solutions specifically tailored for Oracle OLTP environments drive efficiencies around unified tiered storage, backup and recovery, advanced data protection.”

“Many customers rely on Oracle and EMC technologies for scalable, high performance data warehouse infrastructure,” said Stephen Boyle, vice president, Global Platform Alliances at Oracle. “Through our various efforts with EMC, together we can offer our joint customers a full complement of solutions suited for different profiles. Customers can select the one that best suits their business and price, performance requirements.”

EMC’s level of investment to supporting Oracle includes on-site dedicated engineers and validation and documentation of EMC Proven Solutions that provide customers predictable, repeatable results. EMC actively supports Oracle’s Global Technology Centers which showcase EMC and Oracle solutions. Through these investments, EMC and Oracle can provide customized assessment and design assistance for various workloads and configurations. Today, more than 55,000 customers rely on EMC and Oracle for best of breed products, deep knowledge and expertise to optimize their information infrastructure.
