FREMONT, CA: As data continues to multiply as an asset, managing and protecting this information becomes important which can readily scale up the growth. To meet such needs Veritas is launching NetBackup Copilot for Oracle to protect its databases.  NetBackup Copilot will be available as part of the new release of NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1, reports Adam Strong for Storage Review.

The new offering will help Oracle manage their data easily under a converged platform by reducing storage complexities and with minimum administration options.  NetBackup Copilot will increase visibility during backup and recovery process with Oracle database. It comes with capabilities to protect petabytes of data without hampering business process and securely leverages public-cloud infrastructure.

Key Features

Oracle Database administrators (DBAs) can maintain consistency and control over primary backup and recovery operations and the secondary operations are handled by NetBackup administrator.  This means Oracle DBAs will manage recovery functions through tools like RMAN and NetBackup administrators will mange deduplications, replication and cataloging functionalities.  This will result in increased visibility across all storage tiers and database performance by minimizing back up time.

The new NetBackup Appliance 2.7.1 software doubles the storage capacity of the NetBackup 5330 Appliance series. This appliance series will support an additional storage expansion shelf along with higher capacity disk drives to increase usable capacity and the deduplication pool size to 458TB. The expanded capacity will enable customers to further reduce OpEx and CapEx.
