Customers of all sizes are looking to information infrastructure to help them cost-effectively and efficiently store, manage, and protect data across their Oracle application, middleware and databases environments. EMC Corp. has announced two new Proven Solutions and new capabilities to two existing Proven Solutions, all designed to help customers deploy a singular approach to virtualize and automate data movement across all tiers of the Oracle information stack.
EMC has expanded its portfolio of Proven Solutions to provide more integration across the Oracle stack for unified storage, operational management, backup, recovery and archive, replication and disaster recovery and Virtualization.
-- Virtualized Oracle Application Infrastructure -- This new solution helps decouple Oracle Applications from hardware infrastructure enabling non-disruptive data mobility during infrastructure refreshes or migrations within tier 2 environments such as test and development. In addition, customers can benefit from continuous data protection (CDP) replicating data between EMC and non-EMC storage infrastructure.
-- Proven Enterprise Class Oracle Data Warehouse Environments -- The EMC scalable architecture for Oracle Data Warehouse provides a new solution to support the design and deployment of a single, consolidated storage platform, leveraging EMC Symmetrix for maximized performance, availability and scalability of enterprise Oracle Data Warehouses. Based on testing with Oracle through the Optimized Warehouse Initiative, EMC and Oracle are providing tested best practices to rapidly deploy data warehouse environments.
-- Expanded Automated Replication for Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 -- The EMC Replication for Oracle E-business suite enables multiple users, including storage administrators and DBAs, to quickly create new Oracle Application environments to respond to business requirements, support application maintenance, and accelerate upgrades and new implementations of Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12.
-- Expanded Enterprise Class Performance, Flexibility and Availability for Oracle Midsize Enterprises -- Now EMC help customers achieve cost efficiency and increase their ROI with the following:
-- Backup solutions that leverage Oracle RMAN for virtualized Oracle 10g and 11g database environments deployed on VMware Virtualized Infrastructure
-- Expanded protection and failover capabilities leveraging EMC SnapView(TM) and EMC MirrorView(TM) for virtualized Oracle 10g and 11g database environments
-- New protection capabilities for EMC Celerra NS "F" series based on Celerra SnapSure writeable checkpoints
