Oracle Selects and Deploys Over 1,000TB of Network Appliance™ Storage as Part of Its Internal IT Infrastructure
Sunnyvale, Calif. - January 27, 2004 --
Network Appliance, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTAP) today announced that Oracle
has implemented NetApp storage solutions as part of its
mission-critical infrastructure, including Oracle Outsourcing,
E-Business Suite development, and platform engineering. Oracle has
deployed more than 1,000TB of NetApp storage throughout its
infrastructure. This massive deployment demonstrates the robust
nature of NetApp storage solutions for a variety of mission- and
business-critical implementations, as well as the scalability and
simplicity of NetApp solutions.
Oracle has selected NetApp as a key storage provider for its
storage infrastructure and is deploying NetApp
NetCache® systems to
build and maintain next-generation database and applications
software. This deployment will reduce development and quality
assurance time cycles and therefore accelerate time to market for
new Oracle® software solutions. Because Oracle's development
infrastructure is now utilizing NetApp solutions, customers will
have greater assurance of seamless compatibility and deployment in
Oracle environments with the latest Oracle releases.
"Network Appliance continues to distinguish its storage solutions
with ease of management and scalability, which are crucial to
Oracle and our mutual customers," stated Juan Jones, vice
president, Systems Platform Division at Oracle.
NetApp storage is being used to run Oracle's Outsourcing business
and enable Oracle to provide Oracle Outsourcing customers with the
highest performance and data availability. Oracle also utilizes
NetApp storage for all of its Oracle E-Business Suite core
development and regression testing, helping streamline the entire
development and quality assurance process.
"Oracle's broad deployment of NetApp for its own business clearly
signals to others that Oracle on NetApp is not only viable, but
also highly reliable and productive. Today's enterprises are
powered by sophisticated database and business applications-and
NetApp storage has proven to be the ideal choice," said Mark
Santora, senior vice president of Marketing at Network Appliance.
"Our joint customers can leverage the tight product compatibility
between Oracle and NetApp, making joint solutions easy to deploy
