Great choices for third-party backup and restore on Oracle Linux and Oracle VM

This post is courtesy of Margaret Errington. 

In an era where storage is very affordable, collecting and storing data is no longer an issue. This explosion in data growth within the enterprise can bring new headaches, that of protecting it. Additionally,  if we are to add budget constraints, high service-level agreements, and technologies, such as virtualization to the mix, the capabilities of traditional backup and recovery processes may be a bit strained.

Customers are looking for backup/recovery solutions that address scalability, the ability to backup applications and databases both in the cloud and on-premises, and at the level of files to complete VMs.

In collaboration with Oracle, Backup and Recovery Software Partners have certified solutions for enterprise infrastructures built on Oracle Linux and/or Oracle VM. These solutions are available whether the customer’s IT environment who are on-premises or in the cloud. Below are some partners with currently supported data protection solutions:

    does Oracle certifies OracleVM guest level backup feature of CommVault 11? It is easy to backup virtual machine level without backing up traditionally file level by installing agent inside. I would like to know the certification of this feature from Oracle.
