Oracle launches new enterprise-grade flash storage system

New Delhi, Aug 31 (IANS) Enterprise IT-solution provider Oracle on Monday launched a new enterprise grade flash storage system that it claims will deliver superior performance than existing technology, capacity scaling and quicker responses while handling mixed workloads.

Called All Flash FS1, the new storage system can work faster in mixed workload scenarios like handling online transaction processing (OLTP) and high-speed data backup in an enterprise storage area network (SAN) environment as well as in private or public cloud storage systems.

While OLTP is a class of information systems that facilitate and manage transaction-oriented applications, SAN is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated, block level data storage.

“It delivers input-output prioritisation based on business value and can scale to nearly 1 pentabyte (PB) of raw flash capacity,” the company said in a statement.

“High latency has impacted customers on shared storage platforms for years, slowing down OLTP response times and preventing mixed workloads from running at full speed. Customers are looking to flash to address these issues. Our new storage system will take of these specific problems,” said Mike Workman, senior vice president, flash storage systems, Oracle.

Latency is a time interval between the stimulation and response which in the IT world can be treated as input and output.
