BakBone expands Oracle capabilities and continues to make data protection a simple process for customers

BakBone Software (BKBO.PK), a leading provider of heterogeneous integrated data protection solutions, continues to enhance its breadth of technologies and bring powerful, easy-to-use products to market with the newest release of NetVault: Backup Application Plugin Module (APM) for Oracle.

BakBone simplifies the advanced backup and recovery features of Oracle with automated GUIs and the integration of backup devices, which allows non-Oracle administrators to easily and fully manage Oracle data protection without having to learn Oracle internals or create scripts.

With NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle 5.5, customers can now protect Oracle 11g databases, experience seamless integration with the flash recovery area (FRA), simplify the duplicate database backup process, reduce downtime and lower mean time to recovery (MTTR) with the block media recovery feature. 

We continue to see Oracle lead the RDBMS market, and they are showing growing adoption of 11g, said Carl Olofson, research vice president for Information Management and Data Integration Software research, IDC. A wide range of manageability improvements, including tools and options, have significantly improved overall manageability for Oracle Database, but specific management tasks remain a challenge. Third party vendors like BakBone that help simplify the management of complex databases like Oracle can add significant value to organisations database investments. 

Through a user-friendly interface and automated workflow processes, NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle delivers granular recoveries for faster restores and more reliable recovery. Database administrators can focus on critical tasks without risking the ability to recover exactly what is needed in the event of failure. Users now have the option to backup to tape or VTL, FRA, or both tape and FRA.  

Protecting your data should allow maximum flexibility and control and provide the functionality to properly protect customers individual environments, said Jeff Drescher, vice president of Marketing, BakBone. We strive to give our customers powerful solutions that are easy to deploy, use and manage and protect their critical applications. With BakBone, users can be confident that their Oracle data is protected and safely stored to meet their specific data protection needs and business continuity goals.  

NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle provides a simple and powerful data protection solution by eliminating complexities in the recovery process. The solution is designed to speed up restores, reduce risks when deploying Oracle and increase business continuity with automatic integration of backup devices. NetVault: Backup APM for Oracle helps administrators protect large quantities of data, perform backups without affecting everyday business operations and minimise downtime during recovery by bringing critical data back quickly.  

In addition to Oracle, BakBones suite of application data protection solutions also includes:

NetVault: Backup APM for SharePoint
NetVault: Backup APM for SQL Server
NetVault: Backup APM for Exchange
