Oracle’s New StorageTek Tape Analytics Software Delivers Superior Security and Scalability From a Single Pane of Glass

April 10, 2012 No Comments

Oracle today announced Oracle’s StorageTek Tape Analytics, its intelligent monitoring and management software for Oracle’s StorageTek tape libraries.

— StorageTek Tape Analytics simplifies tape management by eliminating
manual intervention and helps improve operational efficiency at a cost
as low as half that of IBM(1).

— StorageTek Tape Analytics software captures library, drive and media
performance metrics and presents them in a single pane of glass, and
can proactively identify potential problems while providing immediate
recommendations to prevent data loss.

— StorageTek Tape Analytics software also allows rapid drill-down into
detailed drive and media health specifics, enabling customers to
proactively make decisions about their tape infrastructure, and reduce
downtime and data management resources.

— StorageTek Tape Analytics software offers a superior set of key
capabilities versus IBM’s Crossroads ReadVerify Appliance. Oracle
customers can:

— Monitor tape infrastructure globally from a single analytics
management server deployment. This single, global view is also
ideal for customers with cloud deployments using tape for backup
or archive. Additional management servers and switches are not
required at each library location, resulting in increased cost
savings as systems scale.

— Utilize the management server to gather data directly from the
tape libraries, rather than interrupting the data path and
exposing sensitive data to a separate monitoring environment.

— Deploy tape monitoring software that scales to meet the needs of
the largest archives. StorageTek Tape Analytics software monitors
the health of the tape infrastructure for the life of its
deployment without purging historical health data to make room for
monitoring new devices.

— Receive clear recommendations for their tape media, drives and
libraries based on over 40 years of tape expertise.

— StorageTek Tape Analytics software is available exclusively for
Oracle’s StorageTek Modular Library Systems.

— StorageTek Tape Analytics extends Oracle’s leadership in providing a
complete, integrated solution that includes Oracle 11g Recovery
Manager,Oracle Secure Backup, Oracle’s Sun Storage Archive Manager
software running with Oracle Solaris and Oracle Linux, Oracle’s SPARC
and Sun x86 servers, Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle SPARC
SuperCluster, Oracle Database Appliance, Oracle’s Sun Storage and
Oracle’s StorageTek Tape.

— Oracle will host a Webcast tomorrow, April 10, at 10 am PT to provide
a deeper dive into its StorageTek Tape Analytics software. Register
