By CIOReview | Wednesday, September 16, 2015

REDWOOD SHORES, CA: In order to deliver amplified all-flash performance with low latency across diverse workloads, Oracle has released Oracle All Flash FS1 Storage System. This system will accelerate Oracle Database online transaction processing and minimizes I/O wait events.

The All-Flash FS1 storage system is engineered to offer robust application development and analytics, requires database copies and real-time data to improve end-users productivity. It features Flash I/O management system to stimulate efficiency, flash domains to protect data and 2 to 912 TB of all-flash storage capacity within one system for cost effective storage.

"With their introduction of the Oracle All Flash FS1, which was engineered from the ground up to maximize Oracle Database performance and scale, Oracle enters the ranks of what IDC defines as the 'true All Flash Array (AFA) vendors'," says Eric Burgener, Research Director of Storage, IDC.

Oracle All Flash FS1 equips Oracle Enterprise Manager that allows data base administrators to provision, cross stack manage and maintain storage system for Oracle Databases via unified interface. Additionally, it boasts Oracle Flash Profile tool that optimizes Oracle Database redo logs and archive log. The All-Flash FS1 storage system is completely cabled, tested and comes in deployment ready package, offering rapid installation of storage system into organization’s data center.

 Built with Oracle Database, Oracle Application and Oracle Virtual Machine, All-Flash increases Return-on-Investment (ROI) and compresses data, while eliminating the negative performance impact of deduplication through Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression.

All Flash supports hundreds of Oracle Database and Oracle Automatic Storage Management (ASM), a file system that facilitates flash speed performance and data movement. In addition, ASM diminishes excess requirement of flash capacity and cost while providing automated policy-driven data management.
