Network Appliance Inc. is planting its storage foothold in the grid computing landscape, unveiling a number of partnerships and technology deployments this week toward cementing that goal.
At Oracle AppsWorld on Tuesday, NetApp announced that Oracle Corp. has implemented more than 1,000 terabytes of the Sunnyvale, Calif.-based storage vendor's offerings to underpin part of its infrastructure to power Oracle Outsourcing, Oracle E-Business Suite core development and Platform Engineering.
In a separate announcement, NetApp said it will integrate Princeton, N.J.-based Princeton Softech's Active Archiving software with the storage vendor's NetApp SnapLock products for the NearStore and FAS storage platforms. The move adds database archiving to NetApp's identity lifecycle management (ILM) repertoire.
Rounding out its new ILM partnerships, NetApp announced this week that it is integrating SnapLock with IXOS Software AG's Enterprise Content Management Suite.
