Traditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of modern organisations by focusing on backup, not recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be copied, rather than as transactional workloads with specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and availability requirements.
Organizations of all kinds rely on their relational databases for both transaction processing and analytics, but many still have challenges in meeting their goals of high availability, security, and performance. Whether planning for a major upgrade of existing databases or considering a net new project, enterprise solution architects should realize that the storage capabilities will matter. NetApp’s systems, software, and services offer a number of advantages as a foundation for better operational results.
IT managers and line-of-business stakeholders are striving to increase efficiency of their application environments. The biggest challenges they face in supporting database environments are managing data growth and database size, and meeting database performance requirements. This ESG Lab Report documents the performance, reliability, availability, and serviceability of NetApp EF Series flash arrays in Oracle database environments.
MongoDB is an open-source, document database designed with both scalability and developer agility in mind. MongoDB bridges the gap between key-value stores, which are fast and scalable, and relational databases, which have rich functionality. Instead of storing data in rows and columns as one would with a relational database, MongoDB stores JSON documents with dynamic schemas.
Customers should consider three primary factors when evaluating databases: technological fit, cost, and topline implications. MongoDB's flexible and scalable data model, robust feature set, and high-performance, high-availability architecture make it suitable for a wide range of database use cases. Given that in many cases relational databases may also be a technological fit, it is helpful to consider the relative costs of each solution when evaluating which database to adopt.
Your enterprise runs its critical
applications on Oracle Databases,
and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining
the performance and availability of your
databases is among your top priorities.
Any degradation in performance
or loss of data could result in serious
business disruption and loss of revenue,
so protecting this vital asset is a must.
There are many causes of data loss—
administration errors, system or media
failures, cyberattacks, and more—but
we often overlook design flaws in the
very systems meant to protect data:
general-purpose backup systems.
Many existing data protection solutions fail to
meet the demands of critical databases because
they treat them as generic files to copy as opposed
to specialized resources. Taking a generic approach
to database backup and recovery not only exposes
you to the risk of data loss, it also negatively impacts
performance and makes it difficult to recover within

ADCs are advanced load balancers with functions and features that enhance the performance of applications. Today, companies of all sizes with geographical dispersal of people and different data constructs require ADCs to optimize their complex application environments from web applications, to Exchange, SharePoint and databases. It is interesting that before the term ADC was used more recently (in the last decade), companies relied on load balancers for website availability and scalability. In this paper we will describe the fundamentals of a load balancing system and its evolution to an ADC.
Oracle Database Appliance is a new engineered system consisting of hardware and software that saves customers time and money by simplifying deployment, maintenance and support of high availability database solutions.
Read the Study that Adds Up to a 2,000 Hour Time Savings Versus SQL Server. ORC International, a global leader in market research, conducted a comparison study between Oracle Database Appliance and Microsoft SQL Server measuring productivity differences between the two solutions.
What you'll learn in this webinar:
Optimize your operations by taking advantage of the modern, scalable cloud infrastructure available on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Migrate your Oracle applications and databases to AWS and get all the benefits of the cloud.
Migrating mission-critical Oracle databases and applications to the cloud is complex and you may feel locked into your platform. Amazon Aurora provides commercial-grade database performance and availability at a fraction of the cost. Apps Associates—an AWS Partner Network (APN) Partner and Oracle expert—can migrate enterprise workloads to the cloud, freeing customers to focus on higher-value initiatives.
Watch this webinar to learn how to:
Run your entire Oracle database and application environment on the cloud
Take advantage of lower IT costs on the cloud and reduce your Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)
Leverage Amazon Aurora to help satisfy your company’s cloud-first mandate, improve security, and reduce risk
Old-guard database providers are expensive, proprietary, have high lock-in costs, and impose restrictive licensing terms. The challenge to date has been to achieve the same performance and availability of commercial-grade databases on open source databases such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MariaDB.
Examine key considerations that go into any database migration decision and specific use cases—in Financial Services and Healthcare Analytics implementations—where Datavail carefully managed database migrations from traditional database providers to the cloud—and in particular Amazon Aurora.

For any business that wants to successfully compete in today’s digital economy, it is not a question of if but rather how much of their business will be done with cloud applications.
A cloud application is one with many endpoints including browsers, mobile devices, and/or machines that are geographically distributed. The application is intensely transactional (high velocity reads and/or writes), always available, and instantaneously responsive no matter the number of users or machines using the application.
Download this free white paper and explore how DataStax customers are delivering real-time value at epic scale with their cloud applications. Explore the core database requirements that make businesses successful with cloud applications, which include continuous availability, linear scale, and geographic distribution.

The success of SQL Server in recent years has produced a phenomenon of SQL Server sprawl - the uncoordinated deployment of tens, hundreds or even thousands of database servers. The result has been low levels of utilization, poor availability and, most importantly, an enormous management burden inflicted on many IT departments. There is an acute need for a way to deploy SQL Server that allows capacity to be matched appropriately to need, that provides high availability without introducing extra complexity and extra cost, and that actually simplifies the life of administrators.
It should come as no surprise that eliminating end user and application downtime, through the use of availability and disaster recovery technologies, comes in at the very top of many IT agendas. Find out more. Download now
This survey, conducted by the Independent Oracle Users Group, examined more than 350 data managers and professionals regarding planned and unplanned downtime, database high availability, and disaster recovery solutions.
When meeting the needs of a growing infrastructure, do you build or buy? This video illustrates how using the Oracle Database Appliance, which contains the server, software, networking and storage, is easy to deploy and maintain compared to a traditional build scenario, while also being an affordable high availability database solution.
