Violin Memory Launches Automated Oracle Performance Analysis Service

Violin Memory, a provider of all-flash storage arrays and appliances has introduced its Oracle Performance Analysis Service (O-PAS) tool. The goal is to help IT professionals remove the complexity of reporting, analyzing and decision-making around Oracle databases, lowering the costs of their Oracle deployments while increasing Oracle database and associated application performance.

According to Violin, the O-PAS is offered at no cost to the end user or the reseller. It identifies core performance bottlenecks in end users’ Oracle environments and determines the suitability of flash-based storage solutions to increase IOPS, reduce latency, and lower overall costs. The tool generates comprehensive reports that identify areas in Oracle implementations where massive performance improvements can be gained by using all-flash arrays and the associated cost savings that engenders.

The goal with O-PAS reports is to offer  insights and measurements that help database administrators, application owners, IT executives, and resellers make informed decisions and select the right solution to achieve significant performance improvements and cost savings.

“We have seen first-hand where poor database and application performance has cost our enterprise customers millions of dollars in lost revenue, extra IT and database manpower expenses, and unacceptable operational and capital expenses,” said Eric Herzog, CMO and SVP of Alliances at Violin Memory.  “With the worldwide availability of O-PAS, end users and resellers will greatly benefit from the ability to quickly identify opportunities for significant improvements in cost, performance, and application delivery.”
