Traditional Oracle Data Management Challenges

With such critical information stored in Oracle, Enterprises require enterprise grade backup, disaster recovery, and database cloning solutions.

Enterprises can also use Oracle Data Guard (Active / Passive or Active / Active), or Oracle Redgate.

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.
