Automated smart data placement

Matching the value of the data to the cost of the platform allows you to get the data from your Oracle applications in the
"right place" and can create
significant improvements
in efficiency.

Managing cost and capacity growth

Real-time Compression included with
Storwize V7000, IBM SAN Volume
Controller (SVC) and the IBM
Real-time Compression Appliance
can reduce storage space
requirements up to 80 percent.1

Single graphical user interface

Managing storage through
the intuitive GUI found in IBM
XIV and the Storwize Family
(including IBM SVC) makes
configurations easy, which
means lower operating costs.

Rapid storage provisioning and accelerated deployments

With the IBM PureFlex™ System you can rely on higher uptime and no service disruption with seamless and transparent migration between heterogeneous platforms.

While dealing with increased complexity...

Organizations that run Oracle can reduce the sheer volume of data that needs to be stored. With storage efficiency technologies you can simply do more with less, allowing you to stop storing so much.
