Oracle Flash System 1 – Product Brief

This document is retired and no longer updated. Last updated December 20th, 2016 with end of year updates. Concise 7-page overview of the capabilities and potential for solid state product Oracle Flash System 1 (FS1).

This Product is no longer actively sold by Oracle.

The Oracle FS1 Flash System is an evolution of the Pillar Axiom with a new internal architecture for block and file access in an enterprise storage system. Advanced data services features are included in the base system offering. The base system is a dual controller High Availability node with the ability to scale to 8 nodes (16 single controllers). Note that Oracle terms the active-active pair of controllers as a “controller” which is also a High Availability Node pair. To be consistent with other products, Evaluator Group will maintain the unique single controller terminology with two controllers in a node.

The Oracle FS1 system is based on standard Intel processor boards with NVDIMMs for persistent caching of data and device enclosures: 2U for twenty-four 2.5” devices and 4U for twenty-four 3.5” devices. Both SSDs and HDDs are supported with automated tiering in the system.

A unique implementation of the FS1 is QoS Plus, which is a quality of service implementation that makes decisions at a sub-LUN level. The storage pooling implementation has a granularity of 640KB chunks and LUNs with quality of service settings for applications will make determinations about tiering and priority at the chunk level.
