Recently, I wrote an knowledge sharing article on protecting very large oracle DB using Oracle Incremental Merge (OIM) with Dell EMC BoostFS as part of the Dell EMC Proven Professional Knowledge Sharing Competition.
The BoostFS-based OIM backups discussed provide a simple, fast and efficient backup for any large Oracle database. The solution can be deployed in private or public cloud using either physical or virtual Data Domain. The key benefits here are the source de-duplication and compression offered by BoostFS for backup as well as the Compressed restore capability.
The knowledge sharing article can be downloaded here.
If you are a Dell EMC Proven Professional, you can also pen an idea, get invited to the Dell Technology World and win a bit of cash 🙂 Keep an eye on the next year competition here.
Thank You! to all the customers and partners who attended the Dell EMC DBA Day covering Redefining Oracle Infrastructure with Flash and Application and Database Data Protection across various cities in Asia Pacific and Japan.
Here is the Data Protection presentation that I used and some useful links for further reading.
You can download the free edition of the data domain and have a play of it yourself (instructions are included in the above link).
Remember NOT to use your backup tool compression or encryption and let Data Domain do this for you to get the best de-duplication results. For more best practices using Data Domain and boost please refer to the following Data Domain Best Practices document.
