Have you seen the latest declaration from ORACLE. If not it is at least worth a look. You will have to look at the details and the commercials yourselves - but at a very high level functionally it looks very attractive

Thanks and Regards

    I have not seen this, it is informative.  I see a mention of NDMP, is this what the ZFS appliance uses to backup directly from the cell server , and avoid the compute node?

We are implementing Exadata and are in the process of evaluating backup appliances.  We are looking at the Oracle ZFS solution and the EMC Datadomain solution.  Anyone go through a similar evaluation recently? Our storage folks seem to be leaning towards EMC because it has more administrative features (for things like replicating to a DR site). 

I remember hearing our ACS person mention that the ZFS appliance will backup Exadata databases going only through the storage cell and not the compute node.  I tried to find something to verify this but am unable to.  If true, this would make this decision pretty easy, if you can confirm or deny this as well I would appreciate that.
