Technical white paper Page 2 About this document This white paper highlights the best practices for configuring and optimizing HPE Recovery Manager Central for Oracle (RMC-O). This new component of the RMC product line provides snapshot-based data protection of Oracle 11g and 12c databases housed on an HPE 3PAR Storage system. This document should be used in conjunction with other HPE RMC guides, particularly the RMC and RMC-O user guides, found at the HPE RMC document site. Intended audience This white paper is intended for Oracle administrators who store or intend to store their databases on HPE 3PAR storage systems, and have previous storage area network (SAN), virtualization, and networking knowledge. RMC-O components The following diagram is a representation of the various components in an RMC-O configuration. Figure 1: RMC-O architecture The basic RMC-O components include Oracle production server(s), the RMC appliance (a virtual machine housed in a VMware® vCenter Server™ environment), the HPE 3PAR storage system that hosts the Oracle databases, and a StoreOnce appliance. The RMC appliance holds the catalog of RMC snapshot and Express Protect jobs, and is included in every RMC deployment, including RMC-O. It also hosts the RMC GUI for configuration, management, and monitoring of RMC-O. The HPE 3PAR Storage system, using its Virtual Copy snapshot capability, creates the snapshots of each virtual volume (VV) required to protect the Oracle database as directed by RMC-O. The StoreOnce appliance provides Catalyst stores as backup targets to RMC-O for Express Protect jobs.

Technical white paper Page 3 An Oracle backup server can be added to the configuration if Oracle RMAN is used for database backup. With RMAN, RMC-O snapshots are used to create a clone of the Oracle database on the Oracle backup server. RMAN is then invoked to back up the clone database to a local disk pool. This allows the Oracle DBA to perform off-host RMAN backups, reducing the overhead on the production server. If HPE Data Protector or Veritas NetBackup software is already in place in the backup environment, RMC-O can be incorporated with these two backup applications to run off-host Oracle backups of a clone database. The process is similar to RMC-O RMAN, in that the clone is imported to an Oracle backup server. Both Data Protector and NetBackup can be used for full, differential, cumulative incremental, and archive log backups via RMAN. RMC-O with NetBackup can additionally perform non-RMAN Oracle backups for databases residing on file systems, although these

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
