Sanovi for Databases

 
Overview
In a multi-tier application architecture, databases are trusted and consistent repositories of information. Protecting information in a database and being able to bring it up in a consistent manner is the cornerstone of an effective application recovery strategy. Sanovi DRM tightly integrates with popular third party vendor databases to provide the complete DR life cycle of monitoring, automating recovery, testing, and reporting the database for recovery readiness.

 

Interoperability
Sanovi DRM interoperates with various versions of Oracle database, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostGres, and MaxDB.

 

Multiplicity of Protection Approaches
There are multiple options to protecting and recovering a RDBMS database. Most popular RDBMS databases offer built-in replication capabilities that enable replication of log files from the primary production database to the database on the DR site. The other popular method is to use storage-based replication. The choice of how to protect and recover the database depends on various factors like solution budget, recovery point, available network bandwidth, and available expertise.

 

Sanovi DRM for Oracle Database

Sanovi DRM supports the complete DR life cycle of monitoring, managing, and reporting to ensure recovery-readiness of the Oracle Database. Using Sanovi DRM to protect the Oracle DB reduces DR cost, simplifies DR management, and gives customers the confidence to recover the database when they need it most.
 
Key benefits:

  • Optimizes deployment time and reduces expertise required to deploy, automate, and operate the best-practices Oracle DR solution by using out-of-the-box Oracle protection solution templates
  •  

  • Lowers the cost of DR operations by providing real-time monitoring and alerts when any deviation in Oracle protection that impairs Oracle recovery occurs
  •  

  • Increases confidence that the Oracle DB will facilitate smoother and faster recovery by eliminating manual steps and using single button recovery and drill workflows
  •  

  • Maximizes productivity by providing a single console to manage single or multiple Oracle DBs irrespective of the replication technology in use
  •  

  • Improves collaboration by providing a web-based real time workflow tracking capability that helps geographically separate teams watch the progress of Oracle DB recovery; customers can now bid goodbye to phone bridges to coordinate drill activities when bringing up Oracle
  •  

  • Meets regulatory and compliance needs by providing instance control of evidence report for DR drills and recovery of Oracle DB that can be used for compliance and audit purposes
