HOPKINTON, Mass. - April 29, 2010 -
EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC), the world leader in information infrastructure solutions, today announced new EMC Proven™ Solutions designed to help Oracle customers gain more efficiencies and cost savings from their IT investments. These new Proven Solutions utilize EMC® fully automated storage tiering (FAST) software to increase IT efficiency for Oracle database environments by reining in infrastructure sprawl, and leverage EMC's industry-leading storage virtualization, data deduplication, and archiving technologies to dramatically improve hardware utilization, conduct more cost-efficient backup and recovery, and reduce long term storage growth in production environments.
As organizations continue to look to cloud computing as a way to cut costs and increase efficiency, EMC is architecting solutions that enable customers to get more out of their current IT investments today and build the foundation for a private cloud. EMC solicits feedback from thousands of mutual EMC and Oracle customers to design innovative Proven Solutions that optimize and protect Oracle software deployments, improve application efficiency, and reduce and control long term growth costs. These EMC Proven Solutions have been rigorously tested and documented with reference architectures and best practices designed to reduce the total cost of ownership of the infrastructure:
"It's all too easy for storage vendors to get wrapped around the axle of technological brilliance. Yet what really matters to end users is applied technology, and that's what EMC Proven Solutions approach is all about," said Mark Peters, Senior Analyst at the Enterprise Strategy Group. "Users demand that key vendors are working beyond academics to deliver practical, proven interoperability and the EMC/Oracle relationship is an example of how this can be taken a step further to optimize the integration of each others' products to deliver enhanced user value that simultaneously enables a sustainable architecture and reduced costs. The use of EMC FAST with Oracle 11g shows how both companies are committed to driving down acquisition and operating costs and will no doubt enhance the 'applied technology value' at many of the two companies' tens of thousands of mutual customers."
"IT departments are consistently looking for ways to drive more value out of their existing infrastructure," said Todd Pavone, Senior Vice President, Global Solutions. "Oracle Database is a cornerstone of many IT environments and EMC is committed to helping our mutual customers easily leverage EMC technology to maximize their Oracle environments while also enabling them to build the foundation for the private cloud."
EMC Proven Solutions help customers identify and overcome business challenges by reducing risk and time-to-value of their information infrastructure. EMC leverages its expertise and proven technologies with its strategic relationships with Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, SAP, and VMware to deliver solutions that support our customers business and technical requirements.
