Deploying the right storage solution can help support Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne environments, which require optimal performance for the transactional and analytical workloads of business critical applications. IT specialists are challenged with the simultaneous support of IT infrastructure and increased growth of application and database environments -- all while staying within budget. In order to maintain and achieve full return on investment, they need a solution that is easy to deploy, offers high performance, enables greater consolidation of their storage infrastructure, and most importantly, allows them to be able to scale as business needs continue to change. SmartStack for Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne leverages Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform to help bypass these issues by offering a cost-effective storage solution that can deliver high performance and availability, capacity to scale, efficient data protection and enhanced management capabilities.

"Performance and availability are two of the biggest issues when it comes to meeting the demands of business-critical applications the enterprise requires," said Radhika Krishnan, vice president of product marketing and alliances at Nimble Storage. "By leveraging our intelligent storage architecture, organizations are able to provide application-consistent performance and management, meet the increasing capacity demands of growing databases, while reducing costs."

Nimble Storage's Adaptive Flash platform is engineered to address the industry's most pressing storage issues: delivering better performance and capacity at a reasonable price, providing integrated protection with rapid backup and recovery and reining in storage complexity. The company's products are based on its patented Cache Accelerated Sequential Layout (CASL) storage architecture that leverages fast read performance of flash and the cost-effective capacity of hard disk drives. Nimble combines this flash-optimized architecture with Nimble InfoSight, a cloud based management service that delivers predictive support and operational simplicity through deep data analytics.
