Block-and-file: Oracle and Emulex form data integrity alliance
In a new partnership with Emulex , Oracle says the resulting data integrity protection code will ensure data integrity is maintained as data moves from application to database, and from Linux operating system to disk storage.
It said the code will enable organizations to reduce application and database errors and system down-time, and includes generic support for data integrity at the block-and-file system layers, as well as support for the T10 Protection Information Model and the Data Integrity Extensions.
Says Scott McIntyre, VP product marketing at Emulex, "Data integrity is vital to any business that relies on critical records and information to function successfully. Our work with Oracle is designed to help data center administrators quickly identify and remediate corrupted data, thereby protecting their business' assets, while also helping prevent lengthy server downtime and associated costs."
