The Day 2 Opportunity for DBAs

With the rising demand for automation, speedy development cycles, and cloud, the role of the DBA is changing. As businesses drive towards digital transformation, DBAs have an opportunity to expand their value beyond data managers into data stewards who help innovate how organizations interact with, store, and protect information. However, although modernization provides benefits that are clear to most enterprises, it also generates additional–and often unrealized burdens–for DBAs as they face an increase in workload and the need for an evolved skillset. The questions for many DBAs have become, “How can I build a skill set that extends beyond on-premises, across multiple clouds, and beyond?  How can I add value to the data I manage and protect?” Opportunities for the New World Being a modern DBA requires a complete overhaul of traditional operations. This blog post will explore the opportunities you have as a DBA to automate key Day 2 operations, freeing up time to focus on more strategic work that will allow you to transition from a database mechanic into a data steward in the new world. On-premises Automation As a modern-day DBA, you are still asked to optimize and protect the systems you manage, but now you also…

How Rubrik Andes 5.2 Empowers DBAs With Flexible Recovery Options

Databases are at the heart of the data management strategy for all enterprises. This is because critical applications are built and hosted on databases—both relational and non-relational—so any downtime on databases has a direct impact on the company’s revenue. At Rubrik, we are committed to delivering value to our customers by simplifying their data management strategies across all environments. That’s why Rubrik Andes 5.2, our latest product release, delivers multiple enhancements and capabilities for Oracle databases that provide even more power and flexibility to DBAs. Rubrik’s Cloud Data Management (CDM) platform delivers enterprise-grade protection and DevOps-centric automation for Oracle databases, enabling customers to automatically backup their Oracle database workloads and leverage flexible recovery options in the event of database failure. This allows DBAs to devote their precious time to other demanding tasks without worrying about database backups or relinquishing restore control.  Rubrik’s data management solution for Oracle is built around recovery scenarios that DBAs perform on a day-to-day basis.  Clone Cloning is the most obvious use case for DBAs in terms of using the existing database backups. DBAs frequently clone critical production data and create clones that are used for testing and developing new applications. The Clone option (originally known…

How to Protect Mission-Critical Oracle Databases with Rubrik

When it comes to protecting mission-critical Oracle databases, many DBAs have traditionally turned to Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN).  However, with thousands of options and hundreds of scripts, protecting Oracle databases at scale can be a challenge for even the most seasoned DBA.  This blog wiIl explore how Rubrik Cloud Data Management simplifies the protection of Oracle databases by enabling DevOps-centric automation, instant recovery, self-service clones, and streamlined collaboration between DBAs and backup admins.   Automate Oracle Data Protection with Rubrik Backup Service and SLA Domain Policies For organizations looking for a hands-off approach to Oracle data protection, Rubrik provides the Rubrik Backup Service (RBS) and SLA Domain Policies. RBS is a lightweight connector that can be installed on either Linux or UNIX hosts and auto-discovers all of the Oracle real application clusters (RAC), hosts, databases, and tablespaces within the environment.  Once the entire Oracle environment is discovered, users can leverage Rubrik’s intelligent and automated SLA policy engine to create declarative policies that define backup frequency, retention duration, and desired location. After an SLA policy has been mapped, Oracle databases will be automatically protected, replicated, and archived. “One of the biggest advantages with Rubrik over legacy solutions is its policy-based management for…

Easing Regulatory Compliance with Queryable Recovery

As organizations continue to ramp up their efforts to collect and analyze more data, a variety of privacy and data protection regulations have been set to support users’ personal information. In many cases, organizations must now rework their data protection strategy to comply with these new laws while also leveraging the business value of data.   As a Cloud Data Management company, Rubrik wants to make it easier for our customers to deal with all aspects of protecting and managing their data, and facilitating compliance is a critical aspect of that. Backup and recovery can be an especially challenging part of privacy compliance. In this blog post, I’ll focus on selective restores in light of these regulations–though they’re very handy in any DBA’s toolbox. Under the Hood Recovery is an important aspect of many privacy and data protection requirements. Rubrik’s Live Mount feature makes queryable data recovery and selective restores for databases quick and easy. Rubrik initially built this capability for VMs and has expanded it over time to include workloads like traditional physical and virtual relational databases. At a high level, Live Mount makes use of the performance and storage capabilities of the Rubrik cluster to instantly mount the…

But in reality, enterprises are still in the infancy stage of their journey. From the beginning, Rubrik was architected to provide the foundation necessary for transitioning into a digital-first company. Here’s how we’ve helped our customers accelerate their digital transformation so far: API-driven automation: CIOs are constantly looking for ways to increase automation to deliver IT-as-a-Service and empower their organization beyond IT.

Rubrik Doubles Down on Oracle Database Support, Delivering Instant Recovery and Clones at Scale

How long does it take you to backup a multi-terabyte Oracle database? How long does it take you to restore such a large database or clone it for developers? How do you manage hundreds, if not thousands, of backup scripts as your databases proliferate? How do you empower DBAs and developers to self-serve their data recovery and access needs while maintaining data governance and compliance? These are the questions Oracle DBAs and backup admins struggle with every day, especially as their digital transformation initiatives cause mission-critical database explosion and prolonged backup and recovery times. At Rubrik, we aim to remove these pain points and protect the world’s largest databases. We’re excited to introduce new capabilities built to run your mission-critical databases without compromising performance, security, and flexibility for DBAs, developers, and backup admins. Our support for Oracle databases will address three key data management challenges: inferior recovery times of large-scale databases, management complexity from manual scripting, and operational inefficiencies between database and backup admins.   Rubrik debuts Live Mount for Oracle databases, delivering near-zero RTOs with instant recovery and live migration upon failback. DBAs can also provide instant clones to developers, accelerating application development, testing and ETL (extract, transform, and…
