Oracle aims to drop storage bomb

Unleashing the Hurdster

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

Oracle's anti-HP weapon, the Hurdster, is set to unleash Oracle's latest storage barrage on June 30th.

Oracle president Mark Hurd is headlining an Oracle Storage Strategy Update along with John Fowler, EVP for systems, and the two will "redefine storage."

The event is at 10am - PT we suppose - and will take place at Oracle's Redwood Shores HQ.

What will Oracle's equivalent of Batman and Robin say? Will it be an all-flash storage resource to make Oracle software go faster? Last time Fowler updated us on storage strategy it was to introduce a 3-step tape roadmap leading to a 20TB cartridge and 2 exabyte StreamLine library by 2018.

Previously Fowler has said both flash and tape are key to Oracle's storage strategy.

It's possible it could a major ZFS-related announcement. A very large memory server could be in the running too. We'll plump for flash. ®
