Reduce Oracle Management Costs with Storage Consolidation
Oracle databases are the backbone of enterprise business operations. Some of the world's largest enterprises rely on them to enable business applications including financial systems, business operations, customer relationship management (CRM), collaboration platforms, and data warehousing. The availability of Oracle-based data has to be maintained at all times to ensure business and operational continuity. In addition, the supporting infrastructure needs to accommodate the performance characteristics and scalability requirements of these demanding applications.
FalconStor solutions tightly integrate with Oracle applications to enable seamless protection, automated and streamlined data recovery, and optimized operational efficiency. This helps you save money on your Oracle deployments. In addition you can:
- Reduce Oracle management costs with storage consolidation
- Enable instant recovery of your Oracle databases
- Slash Oracle DR cost with WAN-optimized replication
- Eliminate redundant data and shrink your backup repository by 95%
FalconStor technology provides the highest level of availability and awareness of Oracle environments. FalconStor® Network Storage Server (NSS) allows you to virtualize different storage resources in your data center to provide an "always-on" storage platform and significantly reduce management cost and complexity. FalconStor data protection and recovery solutions continuously protect Oracle databases both locally and remotely at the most granular level to achieve the best recovery point objectives (RPO). In addition, Oracle database-aware snapshots are space efficient, 100% transactionally consistent copies that can be used for instant database recovery to satisfy the most demanding recovery time objectives (RTO). Rapid, granular recovery maximizes data availability, which improves your company's overall productivity.
Optimized performance and massive scalability
FalconStor intelligent storage virtualization solutions are ideal for Oracle environments. By virtualizing different tiers of storage, you can allocate resources according to performance needs. With FalconStor NSS Dynamic Adaptive Performance, the most active data sets automatically move to the highest performance storage resources. Performance adjusts dynamically based on application I/O requirements. You can use new I/O optimized hardware technologies such as Solid State Disk (SSD) to enhance the performance of your overall storage environment.
Capacity can be added on demand to accommodate database growth and support massive database scalability. Thin Provisioning automatically allocates physical capacity to Oracle databases as needed, simplifying the management of Oracle volumes and optimizing the efficiency of physical storage resources.
Oracle backup and recovery
FalconStor solutions optimize backup operations for Oracle databases. FalconStor® Virtual Tape Library (VTL) offers high performance, advanced backup, and global deduplication capabilities integrated with Oracle RMAN and ASM. Together, these technologies provide the high availability, data protection, manageability, and cost reductions that today's Oracle environments demand.
