Storage Foundation for Oracle Database - Space optimized snapshot & FileSnap
This presentation talks about two new features of Storage Foundation for Oracle database environments – Space-optimized snapshots and Filesnap. Space-optimized snapshots record changed regions in the original volume to a storage cache. The benefits of instant snapshots include immediate availability for use, quick refreshment, and easier configuration and administration.The use case talks about how to use space-optimized snapshots for replicated databases with Veritas Volume Replicator (VVR).
FileSnaps provide an ability to snapshot objects that are smaller in granularity than a file system or a volume. The ability to snapshot parts of a file system name space is required for application-based or user-based management of data stored in a file system. The use case talks about creating database clones using FileSnap.
