This eBook offers a practical hands-on guide to “Day Two” challenges of accelerating large-scale PostgreSQL deployments.
With the ongoing shift towards open-source database solutions, it’s no surprise that PostgreSQL is the fastest growing database. While it’s tempting to simply compare the licensing costs of proprietary systems against that of open source, it is both a misleading and incorrect approach when evaluating the potential for return on investment of a database technology migration.
After a PostgreSQL deployment is live, there are a variety of day-two scenarios that require planning and strategizing.
The third section of this eBook provides a detailed analysis of all aspects accelerating large-scale PostgreSQL deployments:
? Backups and Availability: strategies, point-in-time recovery, availability and scalability
? Upgrades and DevOps: PostgreSQL upgrade process, application upgrades and CI/CD

This annual review includes an assistance with a disaster recovery (DR) simulation, audit of patch levels, and upl eveling the deployment tools to ensure they align with the infrastructure that may have evolved since deployment.
With the maturing of the all-flash array (AFA) market, the established market leaders in this space are turning their attention to other ways to differentiate themselves from their competition besides just product functionality. Consciously designing and driving a better customer experience (CX) is a strategy being pursued by many of these vendors.This white paper defines cloud-based predictive analytics and discusses evolving storage requirements that are driving their use and takes a look at how these platforms are being used to drive incremental value for public sector organizations in the areas of performance, availability, management, recovery, and information technology (IT) infrastructure planning.
Oracle Engineered Systems are architected to work as a unified whole, so organizations can hit the ground running after deployment. Organizations choose how they want to consume the infrastructure: on-premises, in a public cloud, or in a public cloud located inside the customer’s data center and behind their firewall using Oracle’s “Cloud at Customer” offering. Oracle Exadata and Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (Recovery Appliance) offer an attractive alternative to do-it-yourself deployments. Together, they provide an architecture designed for scalability, simplified management, improved cost of ownership, reduced downtime, zero-data loss, and an increased ability to keep software updated with security and patching.

Traditionally, the best practice for mission-critical Oracle Database backup and recovery was to use storage-led, purpose-built backup appliances (PBBAs) such as Data Domain, integrated with RMAN, Oracle’s automated backup and recovery utility. This disk-based backup approach solved two problems:
1) It enabled faster recovery (from disk versus tape)
2) It increased recovery flexibility by storing many more backups online, enabling restoration from that data to recover production databases; and provisioning copies for test/dev.
At its core, however, this approach remains a batch process that involves many dozens of complicated steps for backups and even more steps for recovery. Oracle’s Zero Data Loss Recovery Appliance (RA) customers report that total cost of ownership (TCO) and downtime costs (e.g. lost revenue due to database or application downtime) are significantly reduced due to the simplification and, where possible, the automation of the backup and recovery process.

Today, hybrid cloud is increasingly the norm, and enterprises are challenged with ways to have visibility, manage and make use of all this data – both on-premises and in the cloud. While much attention has been given to primary data affecting mission-critical workloads, data for secondary workloads – backup, test/dev, disaster recovery, and archiving to name a few – have become siloed the same way application data has, leading to multiple point solutions to manage an increasing amount of data.
This white paper looks at the evolution of these challenges and offers practical advice on ways to store, manage and move secondary data in hybrid cloud architectures while extracting the hidden value it can provide. Download to learn more.

The all-encompassing data center is a thing of the past. Modern data environments are distributed and include remote and branch offices, mobile devices, and
the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as cloud solutions such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), and software as a service (SaaS).
There’s more critical data to back up than ever before. Plus, data silos and fragmented management mean poor visibility, which can make it difficult to comply
with regional data residency and security rules as well as service-level agreements (SLAs).
On-premises data protection has not kept pace. According to a survey by Fujitsu, 45% of IT managers said they had lost data or productivity related to data
protection inefficiency within the last year.1
Often, this is because on-premises backups are cumbersome and do not always happen on time.
When it comes to effectively and efficiently protecting growing volumes of data, midsized organizations face unique
challenges. That is because they live in a world of constraints that are both operational and budgetary in nature. Cloud
disaster recovery offers new options for these organizations—they can optimize their data protection economics by
integrating on-premises protection solutions with cloud-based backup and recovery methods. Dell EMC’s cloud-ready
solutions, particularly its Integrated Data Protection Appliances with native cloud extension capabilities, along with its Data
Protection Software working in conjunction with its Data Domain backup storage appliances, provide cloud disaster
recovery with flexible features. These solutions enhance operational efficiency and provide midsized organizations with
clear economic and operational benefits.

Big data needs both high availability and protection.
The amount of data created and replicated globally is predicted to increase ten-fold by 2025, according to IDC research. You may be wondering where to store that big data, as well as how to ensure your data is highly available and protected.
In this eBook, explore why cloud-based disaster recovery (DR) improves data availability, eases the processes associated with DR management, and creates a more economically efficient solution for today’s data-driven companies.
Maintaining business continuity is your highest priority.
In today’s commercial landscape, business continuity depends on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data across the organization – from operations to sales to fulfillment. Even a brief lapse in workload continuity can mean thousands of lost sales opportunities, disruption to production, and compromised customer trust.
The causes of those lapses can range from natural disasters to mechanical failure or human error. You need a data platform and a proactive disaster recovery (DR) strategy that will help you stay up and running in the event that your physical infrastructure is unavailable for any length of time.
Fulfilling orders, providing a high level of customer service, and keeping consumers engaged all depend on the efficient, uninterrupted flow of data throughout your organization.
Above all, protecting customer data—especially personally identifiable information (PII) —is critical
Safeguarding your data is more important than ever.
In today’s data-driven business landscape, companies are using their data to innovate, inform product improvements, and personalize services for their customers. The sheer volume of data collected for these purposes keeps growing, but the solutions available to organizations for processing and analyzing it become more efficient and intuitive every day. Reaching the right customers at the right time with the right offers has never been easier. With this newfound agility, however, comes new opportunities for vulnerability.
With so much riding on the integrity of your data and the services that make it secure and available, it’s crucial to have a plan in place for unexpected events that can wipe out your physical IT environment or otherwise compromise data access. The potential for natural disasters, malicious software attacks, and other unforeseen events necessitates that companies implement a robust disaster recovery (DR) strategy to

IT admins tasked with restoring servers or lost data during a disruption are
consumed with a single-minded purpose: successful recovery. But it shouldn’t
take an adverse event to underscore the importance of recovery as part of an
overall backup strategy. This is especially true with large datasets. Before you
consider how you’re going to back up large datasets, first consider how you
may need to recover the data.

In the last few years, businesses have changed the way they protect data.
Studies show they’re abandoning traditional backup and recovery in favor of disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).1 With DRaaS, businesses enjoy the luxury of keeping a replica of their data hosted at a remote site that they can fail over to in an emergency—without bearing any of the infrastructure costs or maintenance responsibilities. All infrastructure and maintenance is the responsibility of the provider. Gartner predicts that global DRaaS revenue will reach $3.4 billion by 2019. The firm cited several reasons for the shift:
