800XA Virtualization Backup Solution
Can you suggest Backup solution for 800xa system in Virtual Enviorment
Compleate Esxi Hot - (Acronis® vmProtect™ 9)
Individual Virtual Server -( Example : Acronis Backup & Recovery® 11.5 Virtual Edition )
System planned in 800xa Esxi 5.5 + 800XA 6.0
Nothing but cold* backups has been certified for use with System 800xA.
With server redundancy available it should not be a problem to perform a "Config Wizard Maintenance Stop" to install MS hotfixes, reboots and perform backups.
The need for drive image backups between such events should be very low.
Why backup if nothing outside what a 800xA Full Backup will take care of has changed?
*) System 800xA may contain one or more databases spread over multiple disk partitions. Backing up C:\ while D:\ is still online and being updated may lead to inconsistencies in system data structures that are difficult to spot and repair. Oracle will not "survive" a hot backup unless its *entire* db content is snapshot at once. I doubt that you can securely snapshot C: and D: simultaneously.
