“As the storage world moves from its hardware-focused roots to the current semantic love affair with all things software-defined, Oracle is one of a small group of vendors placing the emphasis for storage on applications, database, and data,” said Mark Peters, senior analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group. “It’s called Oracle ZFS Engineered Storage. The Oracle ZFS product line offers exceptionally high performance, and is well tuned to today’s market needs in terms of providing a very attractive total cost of ownership (TCO). This storage option for data protection offers service providers a competitive advantage when deployed as the core of their backup infrastructure.”

The Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance is ideal for MSPs who have clients that require more than 100 terabytes of storage capacity. The solution can lower capital and operational costs while improving performance when compared to traditional storage solutions. MSPs who offer cloud backup services today, but want to provide a more comprehensive data protection solution to expand their total addressable market, will find that the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance delivers excellent value. Existing Asigra partners who require a hardware refresh as their backup vaults exceed 100 terabytes can realize the benefits of this cost-effective and high-performance solution.

“Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance provides us with an advanced storage architecture that is far superior to a build-your-own storage solution,” said Reid Warrick, chief technology officer for Armada Cloud. “With Oracle ZFS Storage ZS3-2 system deployed, Asigra’s Cloud Backup application performance increased eight times compared to what we experienced with our previous hardware platform. We also realized very high uptime, availability and scalability up to one petabyte with a single system, while reducing overall storage costs by more than 30 percent.”
