NetApp Storage System Plug-In with Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c May Reduce Applications Management Costs

NetApp, a well-known storage and data management solutions provider, has announced that NetApp Storage System Plug-In version 1.0 is now compatible with Oracle (News - Alert) Enterprise Manager 12c.

This Oracle Validated Integration extends the application-to-disk coverage of Oracle Enterprise Manager environments, which now include managed NetApp storage.

To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, NetApp had to undergo a stringent set of requirements based on the needs and priorities of the customers.

The integration is expected to reduce the cost and complexity of managing applications that run on NetApp systems and Oracle technologies, allowing application administrators to consolidate monitoring information in the Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c console and perform detailed root cause analysis.

The integration will also allow storage administrators to perform proactive monitoring of NetApp systems, assess the impact of storage performance problems on end-user services, and better align their efforts with business needs.

“An Oracle Validated Integration gives our joint customers confidence that the integration between the NetApp Storage System Plug-In version 1.0 and Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c has been validated and that the products work together as designed. We congratulate NetApp on their achievement and look forward to the adoption of this plug-in by our mutual customers,” senior director at Oracle, Dan Koloski, explained in a statement.

NetApp, a Gold-level member of Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN), provides innovative storage and data management solutions that deliver outstanding cost efficiency and foster business breakthroughs.

According to company website, the NetApp Storage System Plug-In delivers comprehensive availability, performance and configuration information for NetApp storage controllers used in enterprise cloud environments, and is part of the NetApp solution for Oracle Databases.

“NetApp and Oracle share a common vision of providing solutions that can help reduce IT cost and complexity and empower agile businesses,” said vice president of NetApp Brendon Howe. “For more than a decade, NetApp's relationship with Oracle has involved product testing, enabling essential interoperability and innovation that accelerate business success. Customers can benefit from improved risk management and smoother upgrade capability, leading to lower total cost of ownership and greater overall satisfaction.”

Last month, NetApp reported results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013, which ended July 27, 2012. Revenue for the first quarter of fiscal year 2013 was in line with prior guidance and totaled $1.445 billion, compared to revenue of $1.458 billion for the same period a year ago.
