Dell™ strives to simplify IT in order to reduce complexity in data centers and has a broad storage product portfolio to meet database customers’ needs. These storage selection guidelines will help administrators choose an appropriate storage technology based on their requirements.
The guidelines were established based on lab experiments and database workload simulations that were performed by the Dell Database Solutions Engineering team on various storage products. These guidelines not only help customers select the appropriate storage product and technology but also to optimize for best cost-to- performance ratio according to the database workloads that they intend to run. The intended audiences of Dell Storage Selection Guidelines for Oracle® Databases are storage administrators, IT managers, and system consultants.
