Oracle Development and Test

NetApp provides the ability to create space-efficient copies of your Oracle® Databases in minutes versus hours, allowing you to develop and deploy new applications faster than ever before using minimal incremental storage.

NetApp's FlexClone®, a key technology in Data ONTAP® 7G and integrated in SnapManager® for Oracle, allows you to instantly create and replicate Oracle Databases in minutes using less additional storage space in comparison to other vendors.  

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. What’s more, you can leverage NetApp FlexVol® to quickly 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® (for NetApp-based storage) or ReplicatorX™ (for non-NetApp-based storage) and deploy your test and development systems to lower-cost secondary storage.
