Sun ZFS Storage Appliance Surpasses the 100PB Mark August 22, 2012,
Volume 174, Issue 4
In its continuing storage upgrade program to outpace NetApp and EMC, Oracle has reached 103 Petabytes (PB) of IT storage on Sun ZFS Storage Appliances. With Oracle Customer IT and On Demand "cloud" alone, customers can experience ~3.2 billion business critical database transactions per hour. Oracle IT realized 3:1 consolidation of existing NAS platforms, and 12x faster compute farm workload benchmarks using the industry-leading performance and efficiency of ZFSSA. Readers can find complete details in the white paper "Oracle IT Reaps the Benefits of Storage Modernization." The white paper explains that, in some environments, the Sun ZFSSA can deliver three times the throughput of a NetApp system, five of which can be consolidated onto two sun ZFS Storage Appliances.
