An Unexpected Opportunity to Accelerate your Applications

As a DBA, you are the guardian of your company’s data. You hold the keys to data protection, availability and performance - the foundations for IT innovation and business growth. You spend inordinate amounts of time fine tuning the database systems, and yet parameters outside your domain – storage Infrastructure – can have a massive impact on database operations.


Oracle environments are complicated to setup. Traditional storage infrastructure adds another layer of bottlenecks that you have to manage - storage tiers, RAID groups, spindles, LUNs.


The cost to deploy, monitor and maintain an Oracle environment can be astronomical. Capital and operating costs put pressure on database teams to do more with less.


Database and application teams are expected to support ever increasing SLAs with fewer resources. DBAs often have to spend hours tuning the database stack to gain only marginal performance benefits.
