Copy Data Management for Oracle Database with EMC AppSync and XtremIO

This is a quick blog entry to invite readers to view this little demonstration video I created. The topic is Copy Data Management in an Oracle Database environment. We all know the pains involved with the number of database copies needed in today’s Oracle environment. Well, how about technology with these characteristics:

  1. 100% space efficient. There is no need for any full-copy “donor” in this solution. You can create 8192 XtremIO Virtual Copies of volumes in an XtremIO array and there is no reduction in user-capacity at the storage level. For example, 512 copies of a 1TB volume with Oracle tablespaces in it takes exactly 1TB from the array.
  2. Self service. With EMC AppSync permissions can be set up so that developers can create their own copies, refresh their own copies and expire their own copies.
  3. Speed. AppSync copy operations such as creation and refresh are measured in seconds.
  4. Data Services. All XtremIO Virtual Copies enjoy data reduction services. So as users begin to make changes to their database copies the modified blocks are first treated with de-duplication and then compression.

You more than likely need XtremIO in any cose. However, now it’s also time to think about the ease of provisioning copies of Oracle databases to test/dev and other functions the XtremIO way.

It only takes minutes so please give this a view:

    How would you differentiate this from other copy on write options like netapp WAFl or zfs copy on write.

    The copy mgmt. and space efficiency is truly game changing for DBAs and thus overall business agility. On a separate note when will we see XtremIO and other EMC SAN solutions listed for Oracle VM 3.4 HCL certification? I know its only been a couple months since release 🙂
