Dear All,

I have a huge heterogeneous backup environment, where we have Oracle Database, SAP, Baan, Informix, Windows SQL server, UNIX (Sun Solaris, Linux, Aix) File System, Windows File System, Windows Filers, NDMP Filers etc…

Our daily backup size is close to more than 90TB.

Following the Auditors and SOX Restore requirement. I would like to have a Virtual Restore Feature from OPS Center. I.e. restore will read the data from tapes but it will not write any data to any storage. In this case we have all the logs collections and we can collect the restore evidence.

If we have this feature, then easily we can perform the Restore on file levels.

Please share your views.

With Regards

Harpreet Singh

That's a very interesting idea.  I like the way you're thinking.  That may be difficult with the strategy we have for OpsCenter, but certainly a cool idea.

I cover this off by "vaulting" my overnight images to offsite tapes.  For the moment my auditors are happy that I've re-read the tapes and written that same data to another set of tapes.

I do agree, some form of virtual restore wouldn't go amiss.
