Oracle's just released Sun ZFS Backup Appliance, an integrated, high performance backup solution for Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle SPARC SuperCluster T4-4, delivers up to 20 Terabytes (TB) per hour full backup and up to 9.4 TB per hour full restore throughputs. These are the fastest published recovery rates among general purpose storage systems for Oracle engineered systems data protection. The Sun ZFS Backup Appliances extremely fast backup throughput is based on backups of unique data that do not require additional host-side software or CPU resources. The Sun ZFS Backup Appliance has proven itself capable of decreasing recovery time by up to 4x, compared to published Oracle Database backup performance rates from NetApp and EMC at a TCO and do so at a rate up to 3.9x lower over a three year period than comparable NetApp and EMC Data Domain solutions.
