By PoorFrodo

PoorFrodo, an Oracle blogger, writes, "Getting your storage repositories right is one of the more important aspects of planning and deploying Oracle VM.

Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Plug-in for Enterprise Manager (v2.0) Now Available [39051]
By John Shell

Version 2.0 of the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance Plug-in for Enterprise Manager is now available. The plug-in supports the capture and display of metrics from any number of ZFS Storage Appliances in the Enterprise Manager interface. Also available through the interface are all tunable settings (including support for provisioning of projects and shares).

As noted in the 2014 IOUG Database Storage Survey, for a vast majority of customers, the current vendor-supplied storage management tools provide insufficient insight into the effects of the database on storage. Using Enterprise Manager with the ZFS Storage Appliance Plug-in takes a large step towards solving this problem.
