Reinventing Database Protection
During his opening keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2014, Oracle Executive Chairman and Chief Technology Officer Larry Ellison announced the general availability of Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance, the world's first and only engineered system designed specifically for Oracle Database protection. This massively scalable appliance delivers unparalleled data protection, efficiency, and scalability.
Oracle's Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (Recovery Appliance) is
the first appliance ever to deliver zero data loss protection for
critical Oracle Databases. When using today’s solutions to restore a
database, businesses typically lose all data generated since the last
backup—often hours to days of critical data.
The Recovery Appliance dramatically reduces the impact of backups on production servers and networks, virtually eliminating the need for lengthy backup windows. The cloud-scale architecture enables a single Recovery Appliance to manage the data protection requirements of thousands of databases, avoiding the cost and complexity of disparate backup systems.
- Eliminates data loss: Unique database integration enables continuous transport of redo data to the appliance, providing real-time protection for the most recent transactions so that databases can be restored without data loss.
- Eliminates production impact: Backup algorithms integrated into Oracle Database send only changed data to the appliance, minimizing production database impact, I/O traffic, and network load. All expensive backup processing is offloaded to the Appliance.
- Offloads tape archival: The Recovery Appliance can directly archive database backups to low-cost tape storage, offloading production database servers. Archival operations can run both day and night to improve tape drive utilization.
- Enables restore to any point in time: The database change data stored on the Appliance can be used to create virtual full database copies at any desired point in time.
- Delivers cloud-scale protection: A single Recovery Appliance can serve the data protection requirements of thousands of databases in a data center or region. Capacity expands seamlessly to petabytes of storage, with no downtime.
- Protects data from disasters: The Recovery Appliance can replicate data in real time to a remote Recovery Appliance or to Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service to protect business data from site outages. Database blocks are continuously validated to eliminate data corruption at any stage of transmission or processing.
