EMC Corporation and Oracle Corporation unveiled a new joint solution to help Oracle customers efficiently migrate inactive database records onto more cost-effective storage systems to reduce costs, improve critical application and database performance and to meet compliance regulations for historical data.

The EMC Proven Solution, EMC DatabaseXtender Accelerator for Oracle E- Business Suite, combines joint services from EMC and Oracle with the new EMC software (see related announcement release) to automatically identify and relocate dormant Oracle data from production systems to lower cost online storage platforms. Service professionals from EMC and Oracle will provide in- depth assessments and analysis of the status of a customer's data to determine records to be archived. The two companies will also customize an implementation of the DatabaseXtender software to archive the appropriate data.

Once complete, the archived information remains online and accessible through the Oracle application. By extracting inactive data from the Oracle Database, customers reduce overall costs and improve the performance and management of their production database by preventing historical data from impeding active mission-critical tasks.

EMC DatabaseXtender Accelerator for Oracle E-Business Suite is the fourth in a suite of offerings providing new and existing customers with a quick and easy path to achieve the cost-efficiencies and compelling database performance advantages of running their Oracle software with EMC Automated Networked Storage solutions. Other solutions include: Oracle on EMC: Database Accelerator, EMC Oracle 11i RapidClone Accelerator and Oracle Database with EMC: Accelerator for NAS.

EMC DatabaseXtender Accelerator for Oracle E-Business Suite is expected to be available in North America on February 17 and available worldwide later in 2004. Demonstrations of this EMC solution will be available at EMC Global Solution Centers located in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, Cork, Ireland and Tokyo, Japan.
