Oracle RMAN Disk-to-Disk Backup Methods Using Sun Storage Array
Implementing an Oracle Backup and Recovery strategy is critical for protecting a database from the loss or corruption of data and for providing the ability to recover that data. Because Oracle's Recovery Manager (RMAN) is built into the database, RMAN provides the necessary foundation for implementing a total backup and recovery methodology, without additional capital investments. This document provides a high-level description of how to implement an RMAN backup and recover methodology using Sun® storage arrays as the storage medium. For more information about Oracle best practices, refer to Best Practices for Running Oracle RAC Database with ASM on a Sun Storage 6540, 6580, or 6780 Storage Array.
