NetApp® FlexClone® technology, a key component of the Data ONTAP® operating system, is integrated in SnapManager® for Oracle, enabling you to create and replicate Oracle databases in minutes using less additional storage space than other vendors require.
You can use these virtual copies of your Oracle production data to simultaneously work on essential business operations such as patching, testing, development, reporting, training, and quality assurance. Leverage NetApp FlexVol® technology to provision storage resources for additional application testing and development projects.
Reduce the risk of overloading your NetApp production systems: Replicate your production data via SnapMirror® software (for NetApp-based storage) or ReplicatorX™ software (for non-NetApp-based storage) and deploy your test and development systems to lower-cost secondary storage.
