The new backup appliance delivers up to 20 terabytes per hour full backup
Oracle has introduced Sun ZFS Backup Appliance, a new backup application for Oracle engineered systems, including Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4.
The new backup appliance delivers up to 20 terabytes per hour backup, up to 9.4 terabytes per hour restore throughputs, enhanced published recovery rates among general purpose storage systems for Oracle engineered systems data protection.
Sun ZFS Backup Appliance can decrease recovery time by up to 4x, compared to published Oracle Database backup performance rates from NetApp and EMC.
The company said it also offers up to 3.9x low total cost of ownership (TCO) over a three year period, versus comparable NetApp and EMC Data Domain solutions.
The new release optimises availability with predictive self-healing features and a fault management architecture that automatically detects and diagnoses underlying problems, reducing the risk of failed restores. The appliance utilises Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) direct connection via TCP/IP over InfiniBand to eliminate the need for additional servers and expensive third-party backup software.
Oracle Hybrid Columnar Compression (HCC) on the Sun ZFS Backup Appliance enhanced better return on investment through efficient data and system usage. Oracle storage, including the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, is able to clone and enable full system operation on HCC-compressed database copies.
The new appliance is available in two configurations, High Performance and High Capacity, and comes pre-racked and cabled, helping to eliminate hardware tuning.
