BW: Network Appliance Combines with Oracle & VA Linux to Build e-Business Architecture for NetLedger

May 30, 2000, 21:32 (0 Talkback[s])

"NetLedger selected NetApp filers because they combine with Oracle8i and VA Linux Systems servers to deliver superior scalability, reliability, and performance. With several hundred VA Linux servers, the new NetLedger data center is one of the world's largest production instances running Oracle in a Linux environment, and critical data is stored on NetApp filers."

"As the industry's premier provider of Web-based accounting and business management applications for small businesses, NetLedger requires a data center that is nimble, powerful, and robust. Network Appliance storage appliances are ideal for this new world of data center and database applications, where storage resources must be easy to deploy and rapidly scalable."

"Businesses growing in Internet time need database storage solutions that are as fast and flexible as the companies themselves," said Mark Santora, senior vice president of marketing at Network Appliance. "Placing the Oracle database files on NetApp filers gives NetLedger virtually unlimited scalability, simplified administration, and the capability to deliver outstanding service to its customers."

"The NetLedger infrastructure based on the Oracle database and VA Linux servers is designed to handle the tremendous traffic NetLedger is attracting and retaining, while providing 100% redundant capacity."
