Network Appliance Debuts Oracle Support Software

Network Appliance, a provider of enterprise storage solutions, this week announced SnapDrive for Oracle, a data management product for managing Oracle8i deployments in Windows system-based environments.

According to the company, SnapDrive provides support for high availability Oracle configurations such as Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) and, when combined with NetApp Clustered Failover, data protection for Oracle database environments.

Network Appliance also said SnapDrive complements Oracle volume management through storage virtualization, which allows a NetApp filer to present itself to the Oracle8i database as a locally attached device. The local disk functionality enables NetApp filers to be used as an MSCS quorum disk, allowing for centralized management of all storage resources.
