Continuous data availability is a key business continuity requirement for storage systems. It ensures protection against downtime in case of serious incidents or disasters and enables recovery to an operational state within a reasonably short period. To ensure continuous availability, storage solutions need to meet resiliency, recovery, and contingency requirements outlined by the organization.
In the broadening data center cost-saving and energy efficiency discussion, data center physical infrastructure preventive maintenance (PM) is sometimes neglected as an important tool for controlling TCO and downtime. PM is performed specifically to prevent faults from occurring. IT and facilities managers can improve systems uptime through a better understanding of PM best practices.

ENDPOINT DATA. It’s often one of the most forgotten aspects of an enterprise data protection strategy. Yet, content on laptops, desktops and mobile devices is among a company’s most valuable data even while it’s potentially at the greatest risk. According to IDC there will be some 1.3 billion mobile workers by 2015. However, only half of enterprises today are using some type of endpoint backup. That means that the volume of endpoint data that is in jeopardy is nothing short of significant.

IT cybersecurity leaders are considering
in their move to the cloud.
It is no secret; security and compliance are at the top of the list of concerns tied to cloud adoption. According to a recent 2017 Cloud Security survey to over 350,000 members of the LinkedIn Information Security Community, IT pros have general concerns about security in the cloud (33 percent), in addition to data loss and leakage risks (26 percent) and legal and regulatory compliance (24 percent)1. The number of reported breaches in enterprise datacenter environments still far exceeds the reported exposure from cloud platforms, but as businesses start using public clouds to run their mission-critical workloads, the need for enterprise-grade security in the cloud will increase.
Public cloud environments require a centralized, consolidated platform for security that is built from the ground up for the cloud, and allows administrators to monitor and actively enforce security policies. The tools and techniques that worked to secure datacenter environments fail miserably in the cloud. Se
In this white paper, IDC discusses the inherent difficulties associated with traditional backup schemes and examines how Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance delivers best-of-breed Oracle Database recovery in minimal time and with no data loss exposure.
The Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance’s benefits
are compelling for any enterprise with a need to
protect critical Oracle databases. The differences
between this database recovery appliance and other

Your enterprise runs its critical applications on Oracle Databases, and as an enterprise IT leader, maintaining the performance and availability of your databases is among your top priorities. Any degradation in performance or loss of data could result in serious business disruption and loss of revenue, so protecting this vital asset is a must. There are many causes of data loss— administration errors, system or media failures, cyberattacks, and more—but we often overlook design flaws in the very systems meant to protect data: general-purpose backup systems.
raditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of
modern organizations by focusing on backup, not
recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be
copied, rather than as transactional workloads with
specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and

This book explains modern database protection and
recovery challenges (Chapter 1), the important aspects
of a database protection and recovery solution
(Chapter 2), Oracle’s database protection and recovery
solutions (Chapter 3), and key reasons to choose
Oracle for your database protection and recovery
needs (Chapter 4).
Enterprise data protection has grown unwieldy, with systems from various vendors claiming to
protect all of an enterprise’s data—and none of them doing a particularly good job of addressing
mission-critical data recoverability requirements. It’s a situation that introduces risk and raises
concerns about IT’s ability to recover in a timely manner and without data loss from outages
caused by cybercrime, system failures, or human error.
An integrated strategy that focuses on the complete data recovery needs of an enterprise can
eliminate data loss, cut recovery times, and reduce IT complexity—while ensuring data security
and positioning the enterprise to seamlessly take advantage of the cloud.
Backup is one thing, recovery is everything.
You no doubt appreciate how mission-critical your Oracle database is to your organization's success. But what if you experience an outage or cyberattack? Can you be confident you can quickly recover all of your data? Traditional backup solutions leave data exposed to loss and your business at risk. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance eliminates exposure and saves you time, effort, and the stress of retrieving data.

Oracle Database powers your business’s mission-critical applications.
Their downtime and data loss can have a devastating impact on your company’s bottom line and productivity—not to mention the damage to your company’s (and your) reputation, because outages and data losses make headlines.
Enterprises like yours face the growing risk
of cyberattacks, which increases your exposure
to the risk of data loss. One of the most menacing
forms of these is ransomware, where your data
is encrypted and literally held ransom—until you
pay cybercriminals to release it, or you recover
your data from a point in time before your
systems were attacked.
Such attacks and data losses make headlines
—damaging your organization’s reputation.
And with new regulations concerning data
protection coming into force (such as those
introduced by the US Department of the Treasury
and the European Union) failing to prepare
for a quick recovery from a cyberattack could
mean serious financial penalties.
The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover
quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection
architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional
backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This
is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex,
and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for
today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation
Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have
implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for
companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as
ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have
highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow

The personal cloud is the most persistent data loss threat to the enterprise today because many employees use their own cloud services to store work documents. Traditionally, content security solutions functionally link security and storage which requires the migration of work documents to a new content storage repository in order to enforce security policies. This increases complexity by creating more repositories for the enterprise to manage. Most importantly, this approach does not solve the personal cloud problem because individual users continue to store their work documents, for convenience, in cloud services that IT cannot secure.
