Storage Foundation for Oracle Database - Space optimized snapshot Demo
This demo talks about Space-optimized snapshots for Oracle database enviornments. Space-optimized snapshots do not contain complete physical images of the original data objects they represent. Space-optimized instant snapshots record changed regions in the original volume to a storage cache. Space-optimized snapshots consume storage and I/O bandwidth in proportion to how much data on the original volume is updated during a snapshot’s life. 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).
