Quest NetVault Backup Plug‑in for Oracle: at a glance

The Quest NetVault Backup (NetVault Backup) Plug‑in for Oracle (Plug‑in for Oracle) increases confidence in the recoverability of Oracle® environments, including Oracle® Real Application Clusters (RAC) and NetVault Backup Plug‑in for Oracle Data Guard, while eliminating the need for complex scripting. Through a web-based user interface (WebUI) and automated workflow process, the plug-in offers a centralized way to set up, configure, and define backup and restore policies for your Oracle databases. Support for online backups through user-managed or full-featured Recovery Manager (RMAN)-based backups lets you select the preferred backup method without requiring you to learn Oracle database internals. The plug-in offers a detailed level of control that minimizes downtime by allowing you to back up and restore complete databases, individual tablespaces, or individual datafiles. Through integration with a range of backup devices, your data is protected and stored offsite to meet your disaster-recovery and business-continuity goals.

Plug‑in for Oracle is designed to speed up restores while maximizing IT staff efficiency through flexible backup and recovery options. In addition, the plug-in supports Oracle features such as Oracle RAC, Data Guard, Automatic Storage Management (ASM), Flashback Database, and Transparent Data Encryption (TDE). The plug-in offers you advanced backup and recovery options in case of hardware failure or data loss.

Key benefits

Reduce risk with flexible backup and recovery options: Plug‑in for Oracle equips administrators with the tools to simplify backup and recovery of business-critical Oracle® databases. The plug-in empowers you to create a comprehensive and flexible backup policy and reduces the need for scripting or manually issuing commands, without the need to understand Oracle database internals. The plug-in lets you choose between simple user-managed or full featured RMAN-based backups while increasing automation. The plug-in reduces risk further by providing RMAN Validate Restore and RMAN Trial Recovery support to help verify the accuracy of the recovery package in advance.
Minimize downtime by speeding up restores — restore only what is needed: Plug‑in for Oracle ensures that databases remain online and accessible during backup operations, assuring no user downtime. Integration with Oracle’s Flashback Database maximizes availability by enabling you to rewind an Oracle database to a previous time to correct problems caused by logical data corruptions or user errors without restoring physical datafiles. When needed, you can perform full, incremental, and time, SCN, and log sequence number-based, point-in-time (PIT) restores. The plug-in is designed for detailed recoveries, which lets you recover complete databases, individual tablespaces, or individual datafiles. Similarly, you can restore read-only files when they are needed. Through automated options, the plug-in reduces reliance on human interaction, which eliminates syntax errors often caused by manual intervention.
Ensure business continuity: With offsite backups being an important part of the data-protection plan for business-critical applications, the plug-in takes advantage of NetVault Backup’s integration with a range of backup devices. NetVault Backup lets you select which backup device to store the backup on. You can store the backup online in a virtual tape library (VTL). You can also duplicate the job to physical tape libraries shared by multiple Oracle databases, other proprietary databases, or even general backup files.
