Infrastructure choice has the potential to make your IT environment acceptable or world-beating. Here are ten reasons why NetApp is the smartest solution for your Oracle applications.
1. Zero downtime
NetApp storage has been proven to deliver 99.9999% availability consistently. Factor in automatic storage failover and you can be sure that your mission-critical Oracle applications will always be available as downtime becomes a thing of the past.
2. Next-generation performance
Built around NVMe/FC technologies (an industry first), NetApp SANs deliver market-leading performance, reducing latency and increasing predictability and scalability. With an exponential performance gain, you will be better able to serve the data-driven needs of your users and customers.
3. Sub-one-minute DR
NetApp allows you to backup and restore petabyte-scale Oracle databases in a matter of seconds. So you can recover operations in less than a minute should something go wrong.
4. Zero loss as standard
Data protection is built into every layer of NetApp infrastructure – edge, core and cloud. No matter where your data is stored, you know it is fully protected against loss at all times.
5. Maximised storage potential
NetApp offers advanced storage efficiency technologies to optimise your data footprint. This means no more wasted capacity or spending caused by storing duplicate data unnecessarily.
6. Automated storage management
Use policy-based quality of service settings to ensure your mission-critical apps have automatic access to the resources required for maximum performance. Smarter, automated optimisation allows you to maximise resource usage – and to safely run production and development environments on the same shared hardware.
7. Simplified provisioning
NetApp tools can automate and accelerate provisioning allowing your developers to bring new products and features into production faster. By reducing the manual effort required to provision your environment, developers and operators can devote more of their resources and time to the strategic projects which will drive your business forwards.
8. Future-ready infrastructure
Native integration with Ansible and Kubernetes allows your team to build service-oriented technologies faster. And with tools to move data seamlessly between on-premise and cloud locations, your applications can be migrated quickly according to your changing business needs.
9. Native multi-cloud integration
Achieve your optimal cost/performance balance with tools to move workloads across on-premise, hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Take control of your storage spend using simplified tools to migrate to wherever offers the best value at any moment in time.
10. Optimised efficiency
Clear reporting and benchmarking tools allow you to quickly and easily understand resource usage and costs. You can use these insights to make smarter strategic decisions that maximise budget and operational efficiency.
Taken together, these ten benefits underscore why NetApp is the ideal choice for your Oracle applications.
