Introducing Dell™ NetVault™ Backup Plug‑in for Oracle®

Dell NetVault Backup Plug‑in for Oracle – At a Glance

The Dell 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 Data Guard, while eliminating the need for complex scripting. Through an intuitive 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 all your Oracle databases. Support for online backups via simple user-managed or full-featured Recovery Manager (RMAN)-based backups provides you the flexibility to select the preferred backup method without requiring you to learn Oracle database internals. Plug‑in for Oracle offers granular control that minimizes downtime by allowing you to back up and restore complete databases, individual tablespaces, or individual datafiles quickly and more reliably. Through automatic integration with a wide range of backup devices, you can be confident that your Oracle data is protected and safely stored offsite to meet your disaster recovery and business continuity goals.

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 the database administrator (DBA) to create a comprehensive and flexible backup policy without the need to understand Oracle database internals. This eliminates the need for complex scripting or manually issuing commands that may increase the risk of syntax or human errors. The plug-in offers the flexibility to choose between simple user-managed or full featured RMAN-based backups while increasing automation through point-and-click WebUI options. The plug-in reduces risk further by providing RMAN Validate Restore and RMAN Trial Recovery support to help administrators 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 fully 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 granular recoveries, allowing users to recover complete databases, individual tablespaces, or individual datafiles. Similarly, read-only files can be restored when they are needed. Through point-and-click automated options, the plug-in reduces reliance on human interaction, which eliminates syntax errors often caused by manual intervention.
Increase business continuity through automatic integration with a wide range of backup devices – With offsite backups an important part of the data protection plan for business-critical applications, Plug‑in for Oracle takes advantage of NetVault Backup’s integration with a wide range of backup devices. NetVault Backup offers the flexibility to store backups on the most popular backup devices. Administrators can store the backup online in a virtual tape library (VTL) and duplicate the job to physical tape libraries shared by multiple Oracle databases, other proprietary databases, or even general backup files.
