Man, I could really use some downtime about now. With all this stuff going on, family spread across the country, work (grateful to be with NetApp), and much more, some downtime would suit me just fine. There’s only so much Netflix and reruns of Belgian cyclocross races in Flemish one can watch, and I need to plan some low-energy activities. When I do get around to enjoying some downtime, it will be well planned.
There’s another kind of downtime that isn’t associated with “rest” or “rejuvenation” – hardware downtime for your Oracle environment (single instance, non-RAC). Planned or not, this type of downtime is not generally longed for, nor gleefully anticipated, but to be avoided at any cost.
A little searching on the interwebs reveals that planned downtime accounts for anywhere between 30% and 90% of the total downtime (planned and unplanned) for an application. What if you could significantly reduce your planned downtime? What if you could nondisruptively scale and upgrade the storage supporting your critical Oracle assets? NetApp achieves availability through the ability to scale and migrate, addressing one of the greatest barriers to total uptime as well as consuming valuable resources. Invest 89 seconds of your time to understand how NetApp can help you to be an uptime hero.
