Three Major Advantages of Oracle Cloud Storage

Oracle’s cloud storage makes storage solutions simple, affordable, yet high-performing.

Fremont, CA: Data and increased storage requirements in the cloud continue to evolve its applications and use cases. It is more expensive and complex for businesses to construct their own infrastructure and storage solutions to meet the changing demands of their applications. Oracle makes storage simple, affordable, high-performing, and versatile to accommodate various use cases without compromising enterprise capabilities.

Many sectors require low-latency data processing and analytics, as well as large-scale data collection and movement. Oracle has created a variety of cloud storage alternatives to meet the needs of each application.

The three significant advantages of Oracle cloud storage are:

Less storage costs

Storage costs are growing with the need to collect and store more and more data. Oracle’s latest release allows businesses to store objects at a lower cost while keeping them easily accessible. The auto-tiering feature in Oracle Object Storage enables an organisation to shift its seldom-used objects from the standard to the infrequent access tier. Block Storage works similarly, with unattached block volumes auto-tuning to the lowest-cost setting. When the volumes are reattached, the volume's performance is automatically restored to its initial configuration, ensuring that the required performance is delivered without delay. Oracle's File Storage Service clones can instantly transform any read-only snapshot into a live file system that can be accessed. Because making a clone does not replicate or transport any data from the parent filesystem to its child clones, this method saves time and capacity.

More excellent performance for flexible infrastructure

Oracle continues to lead the industry in terms of performance. OCI Block Volumes now offer up to 300,000 IOPS per volume while maintaining the flexibility of existing block volumes, which a business can change for performance and cost at any time while they're attached or in use without affecting active workloads. We're happy to deliver the experience and performance that the enterprise application customers need.

Continuity of operations and recovery plans

Cross-region replication, recently launched by Block Volumes, aids in business continuity and data security in the case of disaster recovery. Block storage failover has a recovery point objective (RPO) of as little as 60 minutes and a recovery time target (RTO) of only a few minutes. Recent additions, such as policy-based volume group backup, make disaster recovery even more accessible. Backup volume groups include built-in automation that ensures crash-consistent backups across all of the volumes in the group. Because accessing objects is instant, Object Storage's Infrequent Access Tier adds to disaster recovery and helps businesses meet their recovery goals.
