Joe Graziano – Challenge 2 Design Solution Maxrep data-sheet-1727271

  1. 1. ORACLE DATA SHEET PILLAR AXIOM MAXREP REPLICATION FOR SAN 2.0 Release 2.0 of Oracle’s Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN offers an unparalleled set of replication choices to improve application availability and data protection. Local backups may not deliver the application uptime required for mission- critical applications, nor do they protect against environmental disasters that may render a data center unusable for extended lengths of time. Extended downtime for critical applications is typically very costly, and in extreme cases, it may impact a company’s survival. Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0 provides the missing link in application availability when you simply cannot be down. Receive an Unparalleled Set of Replication Choices Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0 provides maximum protection for your data and extraordinary configuration flexibility. Data can be protected by replicating locally and remotely using point-to-point, multipoint, and multihop topologies. Different replication methods are supported by Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0. Synchronous replication provides maximum protection and very low recovery point objectives/recovery time objectives (RPO/RTO). Asynchronous replication is ideal for long distances over public and/or private WANs. Encryption and compression are supported for data security and WAN-friendly operation. Beyond simple point-to-point replication, Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0 offers one-to-many and many-to-one (fan out and fan in) topology support. This allows businesses either to spread out replicated data or, conversely, to consolidate data replication to a single disaster recovery site. The flexibility provides you with an unparalleled set of choices that suits your data protection needs. Additionally, multihop configurations allow for a synchronous hop to a “hot-standby” disaster recovery site while also providing a second asynchronous hop to a distant “bunker” site for complete data protection. Both local and remote continuous data protection and recovery are available depending on your requirements and RPO. APPLICATION-AWARE STORAGE KEY FEATURES • Application-consistent recovery • Checkpoints and rollback points • Support for Oracle Databases • Local or remote continuous protection • Support for multiple topologies KEY BENEFITS • Recover applications to exact point of operational state • Save key point-in-time configurations and restore to a specific configuration • Ensure database consistency for maximum uptime • Protect data in local or worldwide locations 24/7 • Perform replication at multiple sites for maximum data protection across the globe • Simplify configuration with an easy- to-use GUI
  2. 2. ORACLE DATA SHEET 2 Apply Rollback Flexibility to Avoid Undetected Data Corruption Application-consistent recovery is available with the application protection package, a feature of Pillar Axiom MaxRep for SAN, can restore replicated volumes to a consistent point-in-time image. This ensures that the protected application will come up clean. Multiple application- consistent checkpoints may be preserved at the remote location, giving you a choice in rollback points. Rollback flexibility is especially useful in cases of undetected data corruption when the most recent checkpoint may not be optimal. Applications such as Oracle Database, Microsoft Exchange, and Microsoft SQL, as well as virtual server environments, can benefit greatly from the protection provided by Oracle’s Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN. Utilize a Powerful Replication Engine By employing unique replication offload architecture, Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0 is able to move all of the replication heavy lifting out of Oracle’s Pillar Axiom Slammers (storage controllers) and into a powerful replication engine. This ensures that high- replication loads do not impact I/O performance on Oracle’s Pillar Axiom storage systems or host application servers. Figure 1. Example of multihop with three replication engines Figure 2. Example of metro bidirectional synchronous replication When you simply can’t afford to be down, Pillar Axiom MaxRep Replication for SAN 2.0 is the answer. It’s part of Oracle’s Pillar Axiom advantage.
