Oracle announced the Sun ZFS Backup Appliance, an integrated, high performance backup solution for Oracle engineered systems, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4. Oracle’s Sun ZFS Backup Appliance delivers up to 20 terabytes per hour full backup and up to 9.4 terabytes per hour full restore throughputs, the fastest published recovery rates among general purpose storage systems for Oracle engineered systems data protection. The Sun ZFS Backup Appliance’s extremely fast backup throughput is based on backups of unique data, and does not require additional host-side software or CPU resources. Tested, validated and supported with Oracle engineered systems, Oracle’s Sun ZFS Backup Appliance provides superior speed, simplicity and savings. The Sun ZFS Backup Appliance can decrease recovery time by up to 4x, compared to published Oracle Database backup performance rates from NetApp and EMC(1). The Sun ZFS Backup Appliance also offers up to 3.9x lower total cost of ownership (TCO) over a three year period, versus comparable NetApp and EMC Data Domain solutions(2).
