Database administrators face significant and growing data management hurdles in a variety of areas, including provisioning, resource optimization, change assurance, dev/test, backup/recovery, business continuance, disaster recovery, and server virtualization. To succeed, one need to decrease this management complexity while at the same time increasing efficiency and reducing costs. NetApp offers a full range of manageability and data efficiency technologies to help to address database management problems, including technologies for thin provisioning, thin cloning, deduplication, replication, and transparent data movement. This white paper describes how one can apply these solutions to boost efficiency and help reduce the cost associated with the database environment.
