Oracle Secure Backup to Cloud
Disaster recovery is a major challenge for every organization and it is never complete without a good offsite backup policy. Offsite backups and tape management still pose a significant challenge to organizations and consume significant portion of IT budgets. Cloud storage is a very compelling alternative to offsite storage, but adopting this into the organization backup policy is never easy. Oracle and Amazon Web Services have combined their best of breed solutions, RMAN – efficient database backup utility and Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) to address this problem.
Benefits of Oracle Cloud Backup:
The Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) cloud module is a fast and efficient way to take backups of Oracle database to cloud. This feature is available as an extension to traditional RMAN – tape libraries and will work seamlessly with existing backup policies. This feature is available since Oracle 9iR2 and it can leverage the compression and encryption features to make it the best offsite backup solution available in the market. This OSB cloud module is available for Linux 32 and 64, SPARC 64, and Windows 32.
