New Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 NAS System Supports Plug-In for Oracle Enterprise Manager

Oracle has introduced its latest-generation NAS storage system, the Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4. Co-engineered with Oracle Database 12c, the ZFS Storage ZS4-4 provides analytics for pluggable databases, doubles previous generation performance to enable faster time to actionable intelligence, and also provides high-level protection against security breaches with fine-grained encryption capabilities. In addition, a plug-in for Oracle Enterprise Manager enables monitoring and provisioning at the share, LUN or project level for all Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance models for end-to-end management visibility across the enterprise.

Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4—with the new Oracle ZFS Storage OS8.3—delivers new capabilities for Oracle Database 12c environments.

The new system provides pluggable database-level visibility into thousands of containers across the enterprise with analytics to simplify and accelerate storage performance tuning and troubleshooting in Oracle Database 12c and Oracle Multitenant environments.

According to Oracle, customers can identify database-related storage issues in 67% fewer steps with Oracle ZFS Storage ZS4-4 due to the exclusive co-engineering with Oracle Database 12c, Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance analytics and the new Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol 1.1.

Users can correlate application performance, database performance and storage performance. “We have plugged in our analytics into Oracle Enterprise Manager to allow you to have that comprehensive view,” said Oracle executive vice president John Fowler during a recent webcast.  “No other storage company has the ability to show you analytics all the way from the application, through the database’s storage device, or analytics on a multi-tenant database environment that allow you to look at pluggable and container databases, therefore giving you a tremendous leg up in consolidating and managing your data stores.”
