Oracle’s Pillar Data Systems Becomes Inland Fiber & Data – Florida Business Continuity Center Alliance PartnerThursday, September 29 2011

Oracle Corporation’s Pillar Data Systems has been named Inland Fiber & Data’s latest Alliance Partner. Pillar’s Axiom® data storage system on-site installation provides the company a fiber-rich, easily accessible Florida location for product demonstration and user training.

The Application-Aware™ Pillar Axiom storage system offers a unified SAN/NAS platform that combines innovative performance characteristics and the unprecedented ability to enable administrators to assign storage resources (capacity, CPU, and cache) based on business requirements or conditions to provide a consistent Quality of Service.

The Pillar Axiom system delivers differentiated services from multiple LUNs striped across high-capacity spindles to gain high performance and high utilization, enabling consolidation of applications on a single storage platform. Axiom is an ideal storage platform for virtual infrastructure projects, IT data center consolidation projects, Oracle deployments, and bringing business-critical applications, such as financial and OLTP, online with the highest levels of performance without tradeoffs for capacity utilization.

Recognizing that business priorities and needs change over time, Pillar enables LUNs or file systems to be promoted or demoted ‘on the fly’ as an application storage group to increase or decrease performance and priority of the application to meet the changed needs of the business.

From the geographically protected locations of Winter Haven, Florida and Denver, Colorado, Inland Fiber & Data Shared Resource Center provides optimally reliable data suite, colocation and alternate workforce recovery facilities, ‘Storage on a Wire’ storage area network (SAN) flexibility and related managed services, along with contiguous office space. Inland’s high-availability data centers are deliberately designed and diligently managed for uninterrupted service and business continuity. SAS 70 compliant and LambdaRail node enabled, Inland encompasses over 300,000 square feet of finished and built-to-suit space supported by reliable power distribution and diverse connectivity, with monitored camera, key scan and biometric security. IF&D’s system-dedicated staff focuses on the management of the storage platform with around the clock event monitoring, proactive storage administration and capacity planning. Inland’s goal is the role of trusted partner who will protect an organization’s data and provide disaster recovery, establishing an essential extension of their operations, scalable for growth.
