  1. 1. <Insert Picture Here>Expanding Disaster Recovery Solutions to CreateCompetitive Advantage in Oracle Database andOracle Fusion Middleware EnvironmentsPresenter’s NamePresenter’s Title
  2. 2. Agenda• Business Drivers and Challenges <Insert Picture Here>• Adding Value to Data Guard• DR for Oracle Fusion Middleware with the ZFS Storage Appliance• Support Services• Next Steps
  3. 3. Business Drivers and Challenges Why Organizations are focused on Disaster Recovery• Increasing sensitivity to downtime and data loss • Due to the cost of downtime, recovering in 48 to 72 hours and losing 8 hours or more of critical corporate information is no longer acceptable • Companies now measure recovery time and recovery point requirements in hours, and in some cases, minutes• DR has expanded to ensure comprehensive IT service continuity • Disasters are not rare because most are caused by mundane events such as power failures, IT failures, human error, and localized flooding• Increasing pressure from internal and external stakeholders • Board members, auditors, regulatory agencies, strategic partners, and customers demand proof of DR preparedness • DR preparedness is now considered a fiduciary responsibility between an organization and its stakeholders
  4. 4. Business Drivers and Challenges Why Organizations are Focused on Database Development and Test• Increasing requirement to speed database application development • Application patch releases, upgrades, and custom app development drive dev/test work requiring deployment of new app’s in less time.• Need to efficiently duplicate large mission critical databases to support continuous demands for application development and test • Multiple clones are often required for each production database in order to support the many development and test activities associated with large production systems • It is also important that the cloning process have zero impact to the production database• In many organizations, for every production OLTP database, there are several development and test databases
  5. 5. Adding Value to DataGuard DR CopiesAccelerate Application Deployment with a Cost-EffectivePlatform for Development, Test, and Quality Assurance• Oracle Data Guard provides high availability and disaster protection for mission-critical Oracle databases• Multiple database clones are often required to support development and test associated with large production systems• Adding a Sun ZFS Storage Appliance to an Oracle Data Guard configuration provides a low-cost solution for snapshots and clones• No new licenses required for Enterprise Edition customers• Tested, validated, and supported by Oracle
  6. 6. Accelerate Dev and Test with the ZFS Storage Appliance and Data Guard Primary site Standby site Database Server Database Server Oracle Data Guard Primary Array Primary Array• The ZFS Storage is simply added to the customer’s NFS Share of Standby Database existing Data Guard environment• Shell scripts automate and coordinate ZFS Storage and Data Guard failover and failback• ZFS Storage Appliance Clones Standby Database for Development, Test and Training ZFS Storage Appliance Development Test Training Database Database Database /export/dev_db/* /export/test_db/* /export/train_db/*
  7. 7. Using ZFS Storage Appliance Snapshot and Clone to Copy Databases Reporting Database• Snapshot capability quickly creates multiple low-overhead Database clones for test and development Test Database Training Database Standby Database on ZFS Storage Appliance• Quick recovery from errors in test and development environments Development Database

Standby Site Database can also be used for Reporting Primary site Standby site Database Server Database Server Oracle Data Guard Primary Array Primary Array NFS Share of Standby Database• Offloads Primary OLTP site, allowing it to focus on transaction processing ZFS Storage Appliance Development Test Training Database Server Database Server Database Server /export/dev_db/* /export/test_db/* /export/train_db/*
  9. 9. Accelerate Development and Test with the ZFSStorage Appliance and Data GuardBenefits Accelerate database development and test; Speed Offload Reporting from Primary OLTP site Automated and implemented with minimalSimplicity procedural changes Use Snap and Clone Data Services included Savings with ZFS Storage Appliance
  10. 10. Oracle Fusion Middleware• Oracle Fusion Middleware (FMW) is the foundation for the Oracle application infrastructure, which enables business applications to be created and run efficiently across the enterprise• Oracles FMW disaster recovery solution protects the infrastructure and provides business continuity during a planned or unplanned event
  11. 11. DR for Fusion Middleware with ZFS Storage Appliance• The ZFS Storage Appliance compliments the DR capabilities of Data Guard for the Oracle Database• The ZFS Storage Appliance easily administers replication for Fusion Middleware data stored outside of the Oracle Database• Hardware and Software • Engineered to Work together• Tested, validated, and supported by Oracle
  12. 12. The Sun ZFS Storage Appliance• Combines multiple protocol connectivity, data services for business continuity, and ease of management into a single appliance• Comes with a license-free model for all protocols and data services Remote replication, snapshots and cloning enable complete disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity• Remote Replication Data is replicated from the primary to the standby site, with data blocks asynchronously streamed to the remote storage appliance Scheduled Replication - The user can define a schedule for the replication to occur automatically Continuous Replication - The replication process happens continuously without intervention
  13. 13. DR for Fusion Middleware with ZFS Storage Appliance Solution Description• The ZFS Storage is simply added to the customer’s existing environment• Shell scripts automate and coordinate ZFS Storage and Data Guard failover and failback
  14. 14. Oracle Fusion Middleware Disaster Recovery Architecture The entire Oracle FMW infrastructure is replicated to a remote site, using Data Guard for the Database and the ZFS Storage Appliance for all other data Primary site Secondary site Web Server Web Server10GbE 10GbE Application Application Servers Servers ZFS Storage ZFS Storage Appliance Appliance Replication of binaries, configuration data, metadata Database Server Database Server Primary Array Oracle Data Guard Primary Array

  18. 18. Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture MAA Best Practices for Oracle FMW DR Configuration and Deployment• Use Sun ZFS Storage Appliance to replicate all non-database content to ensure brief RTO and aggressive RPO for the Oracle Fusion Middleware environment• For high availability, deploy clustered Sun ZFS Storage Appliances• NFS protocol is preferred for the FMW deployments for the ease of deployment and maintenance• Store all the non-database FMW infrastructure within a project and replicate the project
  19. 19. Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture MAA Best Practices for Oracle FMW DR Configuration and Deployment• Use the Scheduled mode of replication for a typical Oracle FMW DR deployment• Use the Continuous mode of replication if the standby site is required to be up-to-date irrespective of whatever the rate of change at the primary site• Snapshots and clones can be used at the target site to offload backup, test, and development types of environment• Configure Oracle Data Guard with the “Maximum Availability” option, to enable the standby database to be almost synchronized with the primary
