Enhance Your Oracle Data Infrastructure

Modern applications are data-intensive, and demands on the underlying Oracle database and data infrastructure require high performance, low latency, and high throughput. Storage bottlenecks often don’t allow Oracle to perform the way it can and should. By optimizing Oracle’s environment, DBAs can focus on designing and developing new and innovative applications instead of spending time focusing on solving data storage bottlenecks and database slowdowns.

The DBA role is not going away anytime soon. Industries are demanding more data services from their Oracle databases. Decisions get even more complicated when you add in multiple applications and databases. Today, a DBA’s role is about making data accessible, the data that keeps your business running and competitive. Businesses need to analyze data in real time to make smart, fast decisions for a competitive advantage. Don’t think about storage--eliminate storage bottlenecks, and get on with business.

A SAN-attached all-flash array (AFA) is the predominant Oracle storage solution in most data centers today. Many AFAs are derived from legacy architectures or based on Fibre Channel technology that is double the price of Ethernet and lacks the future growth and performance of the Ethernet-based design used by Pavilion.

Oracle benefits when the underlying storage system proves high performance, high throughput, and low latencies with high IOPS. Adding NVMe drives to the dual controller platform in many AFAs does not unlock the full performance of NVMe SSDs and can limit Oracle’s parallelism and performance. A dual controller architecture may increase Oracle’s latency during high I/O load, causing storage bottlenecks. Many customer’s spread Oracle’s I/O load across multiple AFAs to support the parallelism required. This raises challenges in scaling and consolidating Oracle, requiring businesses to use multiple AFAs to support their multiple Oracle instances, increasing complexity and TCO.

Instead, use the Pavilion HyperParallel™ Data Analytics Acceleration Platform, composed of the HyperParallel Flash Array and HyperOS™ to move Oracle’s performance bottleneck away from storage, which enables you to more than double transactions and operations per minute. One Pavilion platform provides the same I/Os per dollar as 25 AFAs from the nearest competitor, and Pavilion’s compact form factor is 50% smaller too.

Scalable and Flexible Performance Through NVMe-oF

Today, Pavilion is the ONLY high-performance storage company using NVMe/TCP and NVMe/RoCE drivers certified for both Microsoft Windows and VMware vSphere. Of course, Pavilion started the NVMe-oF trend with the industry’s first NVMe-oF patent in 2014 (Non-volatile memory express over ethernet) and leads the industry in performance. The Pavilion hardware and software were architected in parallel from the ground up for NVMe. The Pavilion platform is superior to DAS, SDS, and AFAs and provides better than native NVMe performance to Oracle, boosting applications like order processing, storing data on a petabyte scale, or performing analytics. Pavilion speeds these Oracle applications on Linux, VMware, and Windows, enabling actionable insights in a short amount of time from big and fast data workloads.
