Accelerate with PCIe Server-side Flash Storage

Traditional architectures cannot keep up with growing application performance needs. HGST and Tegile offer cost-effective approaches to implementing high-performance scalable flash storage for Oracle DB and Oracle RAC databases.
Oracle DB can make effective use of local, NVMe attached flash such as the HGST Ultrastar SN200 and SN260 SSDs.  Bypassing the traditional IO stack, these SSDs connect directly to the PCIe bus and to the processor, speeding data access. Front-loading SN200s even allow for hot-swap, just like traditional spinning media.
For build-your own clusters, Oracle RAC can take advantage of SAS SSDs such as our HGST Ultrastar SS300 in our SAS storage platform model XXX. All members of the Oracle RAC cluster can have high speed access to this flash using industry standard SAS multipath technology.
If you're looking for a packaged solution, Tegile’s (product name here) provides proven high performance SAS and NVMe SSD technology over traditional Ethernet storage protocols such as iSCSI.  Additional featured of the Tegile array, such as online deduplication and snapshots, make managing your data convenient and safe.
Finally, for pinpoint database acceleration in either Oracle RAC or Oracle DB, server-attached SSDs such as the HGST Ultrastar SN260 can be used by Oracle Smart Flash Cache. For servers running Oracle Linux, this cache allows Oracle to take advantage of local storage without any data availability concerns.
