There are several backup and recovery techniques that allow for fast recovery of an Oracle Database. Some are server based, some are appliance based, and some are storage based. This paper highlights the process to perform storage-based real-time backup and recovery using the HP StorageWorks XP10000, XP12000 and XP24000 Disk Arrays with HP StorageWorks XP Business Copy and XP Snapshot. XP Snapshot is an advanced feature of XP Business Copy. Both XP Business Copy and XP Snapshot are storage-based solutions. With XP Business Copy and XP Snapshot, the user can create multiple real-time online copies of logical volumes. While XP Business Copy creates complete copies of storage volumes, XP Snapshot creates space-efficient copies that replicate only the data that has changed, thus saving disk space.
