AltaVault and Databases: Backup to the Cloud
NetApp AltaVault is for backups to the cloud, but what does that mean in a real database environment? This session covers real-world use cases with Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server databases configured to back up to an AltaVault gateway and then on to the cloud. We'll show the business benefits such as the TCO and ROI analysis of the solution at a fully scaled level, using various cloud options. We'll also review the high-level architecture of such a solution and some of the details of what it looks like from an administrative point of view. All three aspects of the solution will be explored: backing up to the cloud, restoring from the cloud, and a disaster situation where the databases are recovered from within the cloud. The goal of the session is to enable sales teams and customers to better understand the real-world benefits of AltaVault in a typical application/database environment.
