The NetApp flash portfolio is capable of solving database performance and I/O latency problems encountered by many database deployments. The majority of databases have a random I/O workload that creates performance problems for spinning media, but is well-suited for today’s flash technologies. NetApp has a diverse enterprise-class flash portfolio consisting of flash in the storage controller (Flash Cache™ intelligent caching), flash within the disk shelves (Flash Pool™ intelligent caching), and all-flash arrays (EF-Series and All-flash FAS). This portfolio can be used to solve complex database performance requirements at multiple levels within a customer’s Oracle environment. This document reviews Oracle database observations and results when implementing flash technologies offered within the NetApp flash portfolio.
