Oracle Exalogic is an integrated hardware and software system designed to provide a complete platform for a wide range of application types and widely varied workloads. Intended for large-scale, performance-sensitive, mission-critical application deployments, the Exalogic system contains many redundant components to ensure that the failure of any single component does not affect overall system availability. While this built in redundancy can cope with hardware component failures, it cannot protect against all possibilities. Certain errors require that the system be restored to either the same or new hardware. While hot standby disaster recovery technologies are extremely useful, they are expensive to maintain and need additional infrastructure. Taking regular backups is part of standard operating procedure for most production systems. Backups on Exalogic can be within the Exalogic system, disk-to-disk and disk-to-tape.
