On March 14, 2012, Oracle opened their call for paper for this year’s Oracle OpenWorld conference. The call for paper expired on April 9, 2012. Here’s the abstract that I submitted for Exadata with ZFS Storage Appliance.
Come learn how the industry’s leading supply contracting company, delivers unmatched savings to their customers leveraging Oracle engineered systems. This session will demonstrate how the ZFS Storage Appliance (ZFSSA) was coupled with the Exadata 1/2 Rack to achieve ultra high-availability and reduced capital and operational expenses for their enterprise backups, external tables, archiving, and data staging. We will reveal additional industry use cases for the ZFSSA. For Exadata customers, we will share tips and tricks to increase your space utilization. Lastly, we will share our lessons learned, RMAN backup strategies, direct NFS settings, and scripts used to drive throughput on the ZFSSA across all the compute nodes.
