A sample report from Edison is "Lowering Manageability Costs while Expanding Storage Capacity using Oracle's Unified Storage Systems."
The summary of that report says, "The drumbeat for expanding storage capacity continues for organizations of all sizes, and as a result, there's an increasing need for easy to use management software that will lower these ownership costs. This white paper describes the results of Edison's Comparative Management Cost study on unified storage systems. The results of our testing show overall that a storage administrator can perform a series of day-to-day tasks in 36 percent less time with 38 percent less complexity on the Oracle Sun ZFS Storage Appliance than is required for the NetApp FAS filer."
