Scality & Oracle

Backup and Recovery

Organizations are always looking for new and efficient ways to perform backup and archiving tasks for their critical data. Common methods of archiving data for long-term storage is to use tape devices, but this can add management and operational complexities. Organizations in today’s fast paced world need simpler workflow and easier management.

Oracle partnered with Scality to deliver a high-performing backup and archive solution for Oracle Databases using Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) and Recovery Manager (RMAN). With the combined solution, organizations running Oracle Databases can worry less about backup and archive, and focus more on managing the database.

The Benefits

What’s in it for you?

Secure Backup

Leveraging Scality RING S3 connector and the Oracle Secure Backup Cloud Module for S3, Oracle customers can simply back up their data to an on-premises, private cloud storage destination powered by Scality RING

Data Management

When it is time to increase storage capacity, upgrades have never been easier because Scality RING storage supports mixed hardware in the same cluster.

Online Archive

Backing-up Oracle Databases should be a quick and simple process. Legacy backup media like tape require more personnel for tasks such as scheduling, loading, and maintaining the tape media.

With backups sitting on disks and further protected by availability and durability capabilities Scality RING is known for, you can count on drastic improvement in reliability and performance.

Oracle RMAN

Oracle Recovery Manager satisfies the most pressing demands of performance, manageable backup and recovery, for all Oracle data formats.

Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) provides a comprehensive foundation for efficiently backing up and recovering the Oracle database. It is designed to work intimately with the server, providing block-level corruption detection during backup and restore. RMAN optimizes performance and space consumption during backup with file multiplexing and backup set compression, and integrates with Oracle Secure Backup, as well as third party media management products.
