Using image copies for Oracle database backups


DBA & Infrasturcture

Date and time

Friday, 21. October 2016., 16:00


Hall B



When databases get ever larger and larger, backing them up using traditional RMAN backupsets will quickly get unfeasible. Completing a backup requires too much time and resources, but more importantly the same also applies to restores. RMAN has always provided a solution as incrementally updated image copies, but they are much less manageable than backupsets. This presentation goes into detail on how to successfully implement incremental-forever database backup strategy together with a capable storage system like ZFS Storage Appliance, and on how to build more advanced features on top that platform, like automation and cloning.From this presentation attendees will gain knowledge on how to maximise their investment on Oracle ZFS Storage Appliance by utilising its features for backing up and restoring multi-terabyte databases.
