First implementation of data integrity standard arrives

By

EMC, Emulex and Oracle have released the first data integrity system meeting the T10 Protection Information standard.

The idea behind the system is to prevent 'silent' data corruption by ensuring that incomplete or incorrect data cannot overwrite good data.

Each of the vendors involved contributed to the project in their own layer of the stack.

Oracle Linux and its Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel includes data integrity features to protect applications.

Emulex has implemented the T10 PI standard in its LightPulse 8Gb and 16 Gb Fibre Channel host bus adapters (HBAs) through its BlockGuardTM data integrity offload technology, which is supported by the Unbreakable Enterprise Kernel and by EMC's VMAX.

EMC VMAX storage arrays in turn handle the data protection information generated by the Oracle software and passed along by the Emulex host bus adaptor.

"Collaboration with Oracle and Emulex to deliver the industry's first standards-based Data Integrity Solution is making the world's most trusted enterprise storage array even more trusted and secure," said Brian Gallagher, president of EMC's enterprise storage division.

"This solution is yet another proof point of how EMC continues to deliver innovation with the infrastructure customers need to run their mission critical applications and protect their most precious asset-information."
