Overview: The Open Systems SnapVault (OSSV) client has extended the reach of Network Appliance SnapVault technology to the host. OSSV facilitates block-level incremental transfers from the open system platform directly to the secondary storage system. In Oracle environments, this approach can reduce the amount of data that must be transferred and perform dramatically more quickly than traditional file-based backup software. This paper covers the techniques for backing up and restoring an Oracle Database running on a UNIX variant when a Network Appliance system is used for disk-based backup.
