Data Management for Oracle Cloud Backup, Recovery, & Migration.


OVERVIEW

Actifio delivers backup, recovery, and migration of large scale on-premises workloads running in VMs, physical servers, and enterprise databases to Oracle Cloud.

Most enterprises want to reduce their data center footprint for Backup and DR infrastructure.

Actifio software enables enterprises to protect on-premises workloads by backing them up to Oracle Cloud, and performing on-demand recoveries and migrations.

Actifio also protects Oracle Cloud resident workloads with backup and replication to remote cloud regions and delivers on-demand recovery.

CHALLENGES

Enterprises struggle with large Recovery Time Objectives to recover VMs and databases in the Oracle Cloud.

HOW Actifio HELPS

For all workloads, including databases and physical servers, Actifio delivers low RTO with instant recovery and low RPO with incremental forever backup.

CloudObjectStorage

For low priority VMware VMs, Actifio can backup directly to Oracle Cloud Storage, resulting in low on-premises infrastructure costs. Enterprises benefit from instant recovery even from cloud object storage.

Cloud-x

Actifio can migrate enterprise workloads from on-premises to Oracle Cloud, and continue to protect those workloads in Oracle Cloud after migration.

VirtualDatabaseClone

Enterprises can also provision rapid database clones on-demand in Oracle Cloud for Test Data Management.

Profit

Actifio presents a single solution for all these use cases for  on-premises and Oracle Cloud resident workloads that lowers the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).

Frequently Asked Questions.

Yes. Actifio can backup physical machines to Oracle Cloud. It can also recover the entire Windows or Linux physical server as a Oracle Cloud VM. As part of this recovery, Actifio can also perform instant mount and recovery of the non-system volumes and databases, thus deliver instant recovery in the cloud.

Yes. Actifio can perform instant recovery from Oracle Cloud Object Storage, as well as Oracle Cloud Block Storage.

There are two forms of replication from on-premises to Oracle Cloud.

For mission-critical workloads, enterprises use replication between Actifio Sky on-premises to Actifio Sky in Oracle Cloud VM.

For Tier 2 and Tier 3 VMs, enterprises can back up on-premises VMware VMs directly to Oracle Cloud Object storage, thus reducing on-premises storage costs.

Yes.

Actifio performs incremental forever backups of SQL using its own proprietary change block tracking technology and leverages VSS snapshots for database consistency. Yet, each point-in-time incremental backup results in a full virtual copy, i.e., no extra storage is consumed for the virtual full copy, and you can recover a full database without having to apply incremental data to full backups.

Actifio Sky then mounts the point-in-time backup image (which is in native SQL format and not a traditional dump) to the recovery server over iSCSI and recovers the database in minutes. Based on the specified point in time, it automatically replays any transaction logs that are needed.

Actifio does not use the BackInt database dumps, and instead relies upon the SAP HANA native snapshot API (‘HDBSQL’ calls to create a global savepoint for application-consistent backup). Actifio performs incremental forever backups. Yet, each point-in-time incremental backup is synthesized to be a full virtual copy, i.e., no extra storage is consumed for the virtual full copy, and you can recover a full database without having to apply all incremental backups.

Actifio Sky then mounts the point-in-time backup image (which is in native HANA Data format and not a traditional dump) to the recovery server over FC/iSCSI/NFS and recovers the database (using HANA API ‘recoverSys.py’) in minutes.

Oracle Cloud users can provision dozens of thin-clones of the database, in minutes, to Dev / QA / UAT / Analytics environments in Oracle Cloud. Actifio does this by reusing backups efficiently to provision thin clones, in minutes, to test environments with almost any configuration.

Yes. DBAs/administrators can use Oracle Cloud object storage for long-term data retention. Actifio can replicate backups in an incremental forever manner to a cloud object storage such as Oracle Cloud object Storage.
