Recently, VLSS took on an engagement with an organization that had no disaster recovery (DR) solution in place. The initial phase was to develop a DR Proof of Concept (POC) within a two-week timeframe.
This organization has an on-premise data warehouse and a stack consisting of an Oracle® database, an Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise (OBIEE) server, and Informatica®. The database is backed up locally with Recovery Manager (RMAN). All components are running in VMware®. The POC’s objective was to take the company’s on-premise environment and replicate it that to the Oracle Cloud to achieve a 48-hour Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and a 24-hour Recovery Time Objective (RTO).
A very common request for every DBA is to clone databases between environments. In the following post we will address the steps required to clone a pluggable database (PDB) very easily. This post would be very useful in diverse scenarios, such as creating new development or QA scenarios. Cloning environments quickly is one of the foundation ideas of any given DBaaS (database-as-a-service) project
VLSS is proud to have been selected as the VMware and Pure Storage partner to implement the joint Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) reference architecture. Over the past year, we have worked closely with teams at both VMware and Pure Storage to design, implement and publish this reference architecture.
