    News Facts

--  Enabling customers to simplify IT and better manage their storage
    environments, Oracle today announced Oracle's Sun Storage Archive
    Manager 5.3 and Sun QFS 5.3.
--  With this release, Oracle is the first tape vendor to offer end-to-end
    data integrity validation, enabling customers to simplify and shorten
    the time consuming process of verifying their digital archives are
    uncorrupted and accessible.
--  When used with Oracle's StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives, a command from
    SAM-QFS initiates data verification within the tape drive itself, with
    no need to transfer the data back to the server.
--  Oracle's Sun Storage Archive Manager streamlines data management
    processes with policy-based storage tiering to help customers reduce
    storage cost and complexity. In addition to support for Data Integrity
    Verification in StorageTek T10000C Tape Drives, Oracle's SAM-QFS
    environment provides new tiered storage support with:
    --  Improved Windows and Mac OS interoperability via native Oracle
        Solaris 11 support for CIFS/SMB and NFSv4, which enhances
        synchronization between these environments and SAM-QFS to improve
        usability in heterogeneous data centers.
    --  Enhanced analytics with new Static Defined Tracing probes,
        designed to provide insight into file-level operations to
        significantly improve performance analysis for troubleshooting and
        cut time to problem resolution.
    --  Expanded tape drive and software support for StorageTek T10000C
        Tape Drives for Standard and Volsafe media, StorageTek LTO-5 with
        WORM media support and IBM and HP LTO-5 tape drives, as well as
        Oracle Solaris 11 and Oracle's StorageTek Automated Cartridge
        System Library Software (ACSLS) 8.0.1 and 8.0.2.
--  Sun Storage Archive Manager extends Oracle's leadership in providing
    an integrated tiered storage solution for data protection and archive
    with Oracle WebCenter Content, Oracle's Pillar Axiom storage system,
    Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, Oracle's StorageTek Tape, Oracle
    Recovery Manager 11g, Oracle Secure Backup and as part of the Oracle
    Optimized Solution for Lifecycle Content Management.
