Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance – and Comparison with EMC Data Domain by Josh Krischer, Josh Krischer & Associates, GmbH
“With its modern design and extensive co-engineering with the Oracle Database and RMAN, Oracle’s Recovery Appliance provides much-needed data protection assurance for any business, small or large. In contrast EMC Data Domain is an underperforming backup appliance with limited scalability and availability. Which one should any business depend on when disaster strikes?”
Read the entire comparative analysis, including a summary of technical and economic advantages of ZDLRA over EMC Data Domain.
Oracle’s Engineered Systems Approach to Maximizing Database Protection by John Webster, Evaluator Group
“Oracle’s Recovery Appliance, co-engineered with Oracle Database and Oracle Recovery Manager, offers IT administrators a single, automated, Oracle-optimized and recovery-focused environment with sub-second RPO for data protection infrastructure and support. Its scale-out architecture puts it in a different class of backup appliance by enabling Oracle DBAs and application administrators to expand data protection capabilities continuously without adding stand-alone controllers that create islands of backup data and make backup and recovery more complex and time consuming. As one user has reported, an investment in the Recovery Appliance may actually cost less than it would have to add to their existing general purpose backup appliances while achieving 200X improvement in backup performance.”
