Protect your Oracle database backup with HP StoreOnce System and StoreOnce Catalyst

By Ashwin Shetty, Product Marketing, HP Storage   @ashwinkshetty


In the last few BURA Sunday posts, two of my colleagues, Ian and Srikanth, have covered how HP StoreOnce can help you protect you SQL and SAP HANA database backup. This week, I’m extending this conversation to give a high-level overview on why StoreOnce solutions can give your Oracle DBAs exactly what they need for database backups.


How can HP 3PAR 7450c reduce your Oracle latencies by as much as 21%?

By Hasmig Samurkashian, HP Storage Solutions Marketing


Oracle database environments demand the highest levels of performance and availability. HP 3PAR StoreServ All-Flash Storage is an ideal fit for Oracle DB environments, not only for its high IOPS and low latency but also for its robust HA and DR capabilities.


DemartekJ.jpgNow a new report from Demartek shows 16Gb FC SAN reduces latency for Oracle 21% and 3PAR Express Writes reduces latency 10%. Read on for more performance details.


The Big Data discussion continues: It’s the data, silly

There is a lot of fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) about Big Data. Not a day goes by without a new statistic on how much data enterprises will have to deal with at some point in the near future. It’s not uncommon to find vendors opportunistically using that FUD to coerce customers into over-provisioning their IT systems.


HP has a very different stance on Big Data than the other vendors who claim to understand the problem. Check out this guest post from Irshad Raihan and Phil McLeanto learn more about our approach.

Who bought the clunker?

I saw an ad last week that Oracle had - it showed an HP Superdome sitting in a trash heap and had a title of "Cash for Clunkers".  I talked about it (in 140 characters) on Twitter a couple of times last week asking "who really bought the clunker Larry" given you paid a bazillion dollars for Sun and have seemingly done very little with that company, especially the server and storage business. 


Funny enough, my good friends over on our Integrity team have a post titled "Whose clunker do you want cash for" with a chart showing how desperate and funny this program from Oracle is.  Check it out!
