Huawei Solid State Storage Helps Accelerate Oracle Database by up to 82 Percent

Feb 04, 2013

Shenzhen, China, January 7, 2013 - Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today launched Huawei Performance Acceleration Solutions for the Oracle Database, which seeks to address core business performance bottlenecks for enterprise customers.

The storage industry is going through immense change brought on by the innovation of Solid State Drive (SSD), a field that Huawei has explored since 2007. Huawei has developed many core SSD technologies - including the ASIC-based SSD controller, wear-leaving algorithm, SmartCache software, and high-available architecture – and with the successive releases of PCIe-based SSD cards, SAS SSD disks, and the high-performing solid state storage Dorado, Huawei has also designed a series of application solutions that are widely used by enterprises.

Huawei's Performance Acceleration Solutions for the Oracle Database apply hot data migration technology, based on its integrated storage T series and high-performance SSS Dorado, in coordination with Oracle Automatic Storage Management and flash cache features. The series reduces transaction response time by up to 82 percent and data analysis time by up to 72 percent, increasing concurrent usage by up to 23 times (1). With this technology, users are able to complete more business transactions and improve economic efficiency per time unit.

As a Platinum level member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN), Huawei has contributed to Oracle's Validated Configurations program for Oracle Linux and Oracle VM since 2006. Huawei's integrated storage OceanStor T series, the high-performance solid state storage Dorado, virtual gateway VIS series and cluster NAS N8000 have all been certified as part of Oracle Validated Configurations.

"Huawei has worked effectively to develop and deliver pre-tested, validated, and production-ready configurations running Oracle Linux and Oracle VM through the Oracle Validated Configuration and Hardware qualification programs. Oracle is pleased to see that Huawei is bringing better tested, more integrated, and fully supported solutions, to our mutual customers," said Wim Coekaerts, Senior Vice President, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle.

"Making IT simple and businesses more agile is a goal Huawei is committed to pursuing," said Mr. Fan Ruiqi, President of Storage Product Line, Huawei. "To achieve this goal, we not only devote ourselves to developing reliable and high-performing products, but also to expediting the compatibility process with top manufacturers in the industry and working to continually optimize integrated solutions. Huawei Performance Acceleration Solutions for the Oracle Database bring users more agile application and simpler maintenance. We look forward to our continued work with Oracle and to bringing our customers more valuable solutions."
