Maintaining High Storage Utilization With Oracle ASM Storage Reclamation Utility and 3PAR Thin Persistence
IT Organizations face increasing pressure to deliver high-performance Oracle databases and other mission-critical applications at the lowest possible cost. The old days of throwing disks at storage problems, which resulted in under-utilized resources, is a thing of the past. Deploying Oracle databases with cost-effective thin provisioned storage is an ideal way to achieve high storage efficiency and dramatic storage capacity savings. By boosting storage utilization, thin provisioning drives savings in purchased capacity and associated power and cooling costs.
