P50 An Open Source Bare-Metal Recovery Solution for Exadata

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Oracle supply documentation for bare-metal “restore” of Exadata compute nodes, but the approach involves “rebuilding” the server from a base install. This is a valid approach to recovering a system, however, it requires knowledge of modifications since the installation. Oracle also mention use of writing compressed tar archives to NFS as an off-host backup solution. This has notable limitations. Relax and Recovery (ReaR) combined with rsync (or many other backup solutions) provides a method to perform complete bare-metal restore returning the system to the state at the time of the last backup. There will be a focus on the specifics of Exadata compute nodes, however, the approach is applicable to any Linux host.
