Niche Player: Oracle

Gartner ranks Oracle in last place for both vision and execution on its Magic Quadrant for Primary Storage Arrays. The Austin, Texas-based software giant offers the Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance ZS7-2 available in all-flash and hybrid configurations, engineered to provide integration with the Oracle Database and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The company’s primary storage appliances are often deployed alongside Oracle systems such as Oracle Exadata and Oracle Private Cloud Appliance. Oracle joined other industry titans this year, including HPE and Tesla, in moving its headquarter outside of California.

Strength: Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances support block, file and object protocols using the same storage software, and are available under flexible acquisition models.

Weakness: Gartner said Oracle’s lack of significant new R&D investment in ZFS Storage Appliances shows its deemphasizing the importance of the external enterprise storage market in its portfolio. Oracle’s appliances don’t support NVMe-based SSDs for persistent storage.
