Oracle has enhanced its storage software portfolio by launching a Snap Management Utility to simplify data protection and secondary processing for Oracle’s data base.
The company said the utility integrated with the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance automates and accelerates the creation and management of snapshot-based copies and clones of Oracle databases by minimising the steps required.
Oracle Storage senior vice president, Phil Bullinger, said that Oracle Snap Management Utility simplifies the creation and management of Oracle Database snapshots and clones and puts control back into the hands of the database administrator.
"Ultimately, this helps businesses reduce risk by streamlining data protection processes and improve the bottom line through increased business agility in test, development, quality assurance and training." Bullinger said.
Oracle snap management utility allows increased frequency and consistency of backups, while providing a higher level of protection for critical data and improved recovery times. It alsob supports the built-in availability and data protection features of Sun ZFS Storage Appliances and Oracle Database.
