Traditional Oracle Data Management Challenges
Most enterprise applications are built on Oracle databases. The most popular Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) applications such as SAP or Oracle E Business Suite (EBS) also rely on Oracle database. With such critical information stored in Oracle, Enterprises require enterprise grade backup, disaster recovery, and database cloning solutions.
Actifio Sky for Oracle
Oracle databases can be deployed in a variety of different storage architecture such as standalone file system, standalone ASM or RAC with ASM. Enterprises can deploy Oracle databases with a variety of infrastructure options including custom configurations, Oracle cloud, Oracle Virtual Machines, or Exadata appliances. Enterprises can also use Oracle Data Guard (Active / Passive or Active / Active), or Oracle Redgate.
Actifio Sky delivers enterprise grade backup, disaster recovery, long term data retention, and database cloning for Oracle databases deployed in any of these configurations. Most importantly – enterprises can use Actifio Sky for very large databases including 100+ TB sized Oracle database environments.

HOW ACTIFIO & ORACLE WORK TOGETHER
Actifio uses the native functionality in Oracle RMAN to ingest data to create a golden copy, update it incrementally with changed blocks, and maintain it in an incremental-forever architecture. Actifio will hold the virtual image in its native format for efficient usage and all Oracle storage formats are supported, including raw volumes, file systems, and ASM.
Once a golden image is captured, this image can be in a ready-state for immediate use, de-duplicated for long term retention, or sent to a remote location for disaster recovery purposes.
