09 May 2011 Solaris Hands-on Lab Explores the World's First Fully Virtualized Operating System [24120]
The Focus is on Solaris ZFS File System

Exploring the World's First Fully Virtualized Operating System is a hands-on-lab tutorial that walks readers through the virtualization of the operating system, the storage and the network, as well as the combination of these three sectors to create an extremely agile system. The two prerequisites to this tutorial are Installing Oracle Solaris 11 Express in Oracle VM Virtual Box and Introduction to the Oracle Solaris 11 ZFS File System. Readers will create some zpools and explore different types of virtual devices (vdevs), creating, two different types of ZFS datasets, file systems and volumes, then customize some properties, snapshot and clone them, and perform some upgrades. In the final, advanced section, readers will look at how some of the other Oracle Solaris services, like NFS (Network File System) and FMA (Fault Management Architecture) are tied into ZFS.

21 Apr 2011 Oracle Database Cloning Solution Using Oracle Recovery Manager and Sun ZFS Storage Appliance [24097]
An Oracle White Paper (44-Pages)

"Oracle Database Cloning Solution Using Oracle Recovery Manager and Sun ZFS Storage Appliance" an Oracle white paper, describes how to use the Oracle RMAN incrementally updated backup feature to back up a SAN-based ASM database into a Network File System (NFS) protocol-based database stored on the Sun ZFS Storage Appliance. The snapshot and cloning features of the storage appliance are then used to duplicate or clone the Oracle RMAN backup. The cloning procedure explained in this white paper is performed at the production site.

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.

02 Mar 2011 Quick & Dirty NFS: A How-to [23969]
NFS (as Configured via ZFS)

In a recent blog on The Observatory Brian Leonard discusses Quick & Dirty NFS (Network File System,)where he presents using NFS for the purpose of creating and managing shares. His focus is on dispelling the confusion that is a result of the maturity of NFS, namely, sorting out the several different utilities available for this process. Leonard stresses that his approach lies in exploring how NFS is configured via ZFS. He includes a summary of the steps he uses in file sharing, providing the necessary code samples.
