NetBackup: Backing Up Oracle Exadata
Hi. We just ordered an Oracle Exadata (and when I say "we", I mean my managers), and am now being told that in order to back it up, we need to purchase a ZFS appliance.
Is there another way to back up the data from the Oracle Exadata? We only back up RMAN dumps and logs, which are usually on a separate filesystem. I'm going to guess that these will still be on the Exadata, but I think you can still do these dumps to an NFS share and back it up on that NFS server. Has anyone found a solution to do this without paying $$$$$$$$$ to Oracle?
