Before we start talking about new features, I’d like to remind folks what we’ve done to protect Oracle workloads…for years. Veritas NetBackup™ currently protects over 200 PB of Oracle data, with over 50 million backups run each week. Some of the features have been around for a while, including:
NetBackup 8.3 adds several improvements around RAC protection, security management, and performance. Newly supported features include:
Figure 1. Get an overview of your Oracle Instances, Instance groups and RAC databases.
Figure 2. View all your RAC databases.
Figure 3. Manage your RAC database credentials efficiently.
Figure 4. Load-balancing to control the data streams.
To top it off, all these features are also available via restful APIs. If it’s in the NetBackup web UI, it has an API!
