The Technical Services team for Backup and Recovery have produced a number of documents we call "Blueprints".
These Blueprints are designed to show backup and recovery challenges around specific technologies or functions and how NetBackup solves these challenges.
Each Blueprint consists of:
Introduction to NetBackup for Oracle
NetBackup 7.6 includes many features and capabilities built specifically for the optimized protection and recovery of Oracle environments. These include the following:
Large enterprises run on very large Oracle databases driving core business operations such as payroll, business analytics and enterprise resource planning and need enterprise class data protection solutions. The dramatic rise in database sizes imposes unique challenges for backup administrators, who are expected to protect large volumes of data in a timeframe that is ever shrinking leading to the need to reduce Oracle data loss exposure to seconds or sub-seconds as well as minimize the I/O and CPU load on Oracle servers when performing backup tasks.
It is also essential to ensure that disk space consumed by backups is kept to a minimum using content-aware deduplication technology, ensure the backup process can scale as the database grows and minimize recovery time to support stringent service level requirements.
