12 Apr 2011 SunZFS Storage Appliance Delivers Rapid Backup and Recovery Rates for Oracle Exadata [24079]
Backs Up an Exadata Full HP Rack in Less than 7 Hours

Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance, featuring high bandwidth interconnects and superior processing power, is nearly 2X faster at Exadata backup and recovery compared to conventional NAS storage systems, according to the Oracle data sheet Backup and Recovery for Exadata with Oracle's Sun ZFS Storage Appliance. Testing has demonstrated that an Oracle Exadata Database Machine Half Rack configuration with a small Sun ZFS 7420 Appliance cluster with 4 disk shelves achieved NFS-based backup performance over IB at a data rate of 5.8 TB/hr, and a restore rate of 4.7 TB/hr the datasheet reports. This backup rate is fast enough to completely backup an Exadata half HP rack in less than 4 hours, or an Exadata full HP rack in less than 7 hours. By adding disk drives and CPUs, the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance can currently support capacities up to 1.15 PB while maintaining balanced system performance.
