05 Mar 2015 Announcing Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager [41201]
StorageTek Storage Archive Manager 5.4 (SAM-QFS) has been renamed

Due to recent enhancements and importance within Oracle's storage portfolio, StorageTek Storage Archive Manager 5.4 (SAM-QFS) has been renamed to Oracle Hierarchical Storage Manager (Oracle HSM) 6.0.

Key points to note:

  • The functionality of Oracle HSM 6.0 is identical to that of SAM-QFS 5.4
  • There are no changes to partner resell requirements. Oracle HSM resell rights are granted through the Tape, NAS, or SAN storage knowledge zones.

SAM/HSM is the critical component to the popular Tiered Storage Specialization, and has a wide variety of use cases including:

  • Cloud infrastructure using OpenStack Swift
  • Genomics data
  • Geospatial data
  • Medical images
  • Research data
  • Public transportation records
  • Content management
  • Oracle Recovery Manager (Oracle RMAN) backup

30 Sep 2014 StorageTek SAM-QFS 5.4 [38569]
Open source filesystem and Hierarchical Storage Manager

QFS is an open source filesystem. It is tightly integrated with SAM, the Storage and Archive Manager, and hence is often referred to as SAM-QFS. SAM provides the functionality of a Hierarchical Storage Manager.

StorageTek Storage Archive Manager (SAM) 5.4 is the most significant update in several years. It contains numerous enhancements, including:

  • Horizontal scalability enables users to increase the rate at which they archive data by 10x
  • Automated data integrity validation enables the archive to automatically self-audit and then self-heal if necessary
  • Files can now be imported and exported from the archive in LTFS format

12 Nov 2012 Oracle Releases Sun Storage Archive Manager (SAM) 5.3 and Sun QFS 5.3 [28481]
Now Users Can Enjoy End-to-end Data Integrity Validation

The release of Oracle’s Sun Storage Archive Manager 5.3 and Sun QFS 5.3 makes Oracle the first tape vendor to offer end-to-end data integrity validation. Users can now employ SAM-QFS to command data verification within the Oracle StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives themselves rather than needing to transfer the data back to the server. Oracle’s Sun Storage Archive Manager streamlines data management processes with policy-based storage tiering to help customers reduce storage cost and complexity. In addition to support for Data Integrity Verification in StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives, Oracle’s SAM-QFS environment provides new tiered storage support.

18 Oct 2012 Oracle Storage Enables T3Media to Grow Global Video Management and Licensing Business [28090]
Extended Tape Life Provides Savings in Video Storage Cadence

T3Media, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based storage, access and licensing for enterprise-scale video libraries, has implemented Oracle’s StorageTek SL8500 modular library systems with Oracle’s StorageTek T10000C tape drives managed by Oracle’s Sun Storage Archive Manager software to manage data across two facilities. The 5 TB capacity of Oracle’s StorageTek T10000C tape drives helped the company grow its business while leveraging its existing investment in StorageTek SL8500 libraries. The longevity of StorageTek T10000 T2 data cartridges also allows T3Media to migrate data on an eight to 10 year cadence, saving time and money over the 30+ year life of their data.

02 Aug 2012 Oracle’s StorageTek Tape Storage Solutions Enable Deep Data Archiving at CalTech [27097]
System Planned to Scale at the Rate of 1 PB Annually

To accommodate archiving of the enormous volume of data generated by its Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) Project, the California Institute of Technology has implemented Oracle’s StorageTek tape libraries and drives. The LIGO Laboratory migrated 12 years of observations (2.9 Petabytes PB) in 2011 to a system comprising Oracle’s StorageTek T10000C drives throughout. This delivered 25x the capacity and up to 8x the performance at the observatories and 5x the capacity and up to 2x the performance at the central repository, enabling annual scalability at the rate of up to 1 PB per year from the next generation Advanced LIGO experiment.
