NetApp OSSV Replacement Solution

NetApp users have long relied on NetApp Open Systems SnapVault (OSSV) agents to protect data not resident on NetApp storage or in remote sites. However, OSSV does not support disk targets running Data ONTAP 8 and 9, and the software is no longer being updated. Other functional gaps exist, such as support for Windows 2016 backing up to ONTAP 7-mode. Catalogic provides a simple solution for all of these challenges with a complete replacement solution for OSSV that uses the same architecture: servers are backed up directly to NetApp storage. Catalogic also adds significant additional capabilities for data backup and restore not found in OSSV. See our data sheet for the full story.

Maximizing Storage Efficiency with Oracle and SQL Server Databases

Organizations require copies of production data for use in application development, QA, analysis, and reporting, especially for databases such as Oracle and SQL Server. For various reasons such as performance impact, security implications, and data integrity, performing anything considered a Dev or Test function on production data is rarely a good idea. Instead, organizations restore to SQL cloning and Oracle cloning to create frequent copies of production data sets and continually refresh them to allow secondary functions to be performed with real data. This leads to numerous IT challenges. This report details the specific challenges organizations face, and shows how an effective Copy Data Management solution can meet those challenges and deliver added value, especially in the areas of SQL test data management and Oracle test data management.
