NetApp and Oracle Help Customers Prevent Data Corruption With SnapValidator For Oracle Database 10g

  • 20 November, 2007 10:06

<p>NetApp Provides Customers Unparalleled Flexibility, Becoming the Only Storage Provider to Support Oracle over Every Standard Network Protocol.</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia - 20 November 2007 – Network Appliance (NASDAQ: NTAP), a leading provider of storage and data management solutions, today announced the availability of SnapValidator for Oracle Database 10g across all of its modular storage platforms. NetApp is the only company to support the Oracle Hardware Assisted Resilient Data (HARD) Initiative across NFS, FCP, and iSCSI protocols.</p>
<p>SnapValidator for Oracle proactively checks and intercepts potential data corruption or loss, resulting in increased data reliability while helping to reduce risk and unplanned downtime. This end-to-end infrastructure-hardening solution for Oracle Database environments helps customers prevent data corruption before it starts.</p>
<p>Customers with database servers and storage devices often deal with added complexity and increased probability of corruption before data is written. NetApp and Oracle have added intelligence and database awareness to NetApp modular storage systems to provide customers unparalleled protection and validation for Oracle data and eliminate challenges associated with ensuring the accuracy of their data, including unplanned application errors, accidental human errors resulting in potentially copying data onto inappropriate storage resources, and intricate data backup and restore processes that make data susceptible to corruption or loss.</p>
<p>Unlike those of other vendors, NetApp customers benefit from a simple and unified architecture and HARD support across its entire storage product line, not only on high-end systems designed for large enterprises.</p>
<p>The Oracle HARD Initiative is a vaccine that helps customers prevent business data from becoming corrupted. It is cheaper, quicker, and easier to prevent an infection or corruption than to cure it. Our companies have tightly integrated SnapValidator with Oracle Databases to create a data corruption immune system that detects and eliminates corruptions before they happen.</p>
<p>Customers that are dependent on the accuracy of highly sensitive data, particularly within financial services organisations, including major banks and brokerages, can leverage SnapValidator software to add an additional layer of protection, providing peace of mind that their transactions are accurate.</p>
<p>“We created SnapValidator for our customers who are responsible for making certain their Oracle data is unaltered and 100% accurate,” said Patrick Rogers, vice president of Solutions Marketing at Network Appliance.</p>
<p>“Our customers rely on our products with tight Oracle integration across our entire storage line, so they can remain focused on using their data rather than being preoccupied with its storage and movement.”</p>
