Traditionally, companies deployed IT systems that were specific to each application, resulting in silos of IT infrastructures that became more challenging to manage as they grew. The Oracle and NetApp strategy is to provide customers an enterprise class infrastructure that combines the benefits of grid computing and virtualization technologies. Together, NetApp and Oracle enable customers to pool shared resources to rapidly respond to changing business environments and to create a resilient, highest availability infrastructure for all business and mission-critical applications and databases.
