ZS3 storage has a number of advantages over non-Oracle storage for Oracle Database workloads. This includes (in no particular order):
  • Support for Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC)
  • Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol (OISP)
  • Hybrid storage pools
  • dtrace analytics and others.

There are a bunch of whitepapers here with details:
