Business Continuity and Data Protection for Oracle with Pure Storage

How do you prepare for the unexpected with your Oracle environments? Or ensure that you can meet SLAs for restoring critical data in your production Oracle databases?

Organizations must maintain business continuity, as downtime can significantly impact competitiveness, reputation, and profitability. Meanwhile, legacy data protection practices lock data way, optimized for backup but not for rapid restore that the business requires.

DBTA recently held a webinar with Radha Manga, senior.director, FlashBlade Solutions Architecture, Pure Storage, and Rakesh Tikku, Oracle Solutions Architect, Pure Storage, who discussed how all-flash solutions from Pure Storage can enhance data protection and business continuity strategies while lowering the cost of operations for Oracle Database.

Pure Storage products enable business continuity architectures, Manga and Tikku explained. With the Purity FA ActiveCluster Oracle environments benefit from the following features:

  • Synchronous operation
  • Transparent failover
  • Simple management
  • No bolt-ons and no licenses
  • Pure1 Cloud Mediator

The Pure1 Cloud Mediator is maintained by Pure Storage in the cloud. It is automatically discovered and configured by sync rep enabled arrays. There’s no need to deploy, maintain, upgrade and security patch another component. And always-on mediation is available from anywhere and by default at an external site.

Pure products are simple to acquire, easy manage, and even easier to scale, Manga and Tikku said. The solutions integrate with wide range of eco system partner products.
