Oracle expands Cloud PaaS service with new database backup and storage cloud solution

Oracle has announced the availability of Oracle Database Backup Service and Oracle Storage Cloud Service to deliver a simple, scalable and low-cost Oracle Database cloud backup solution to clients.

Offered as part of the Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) portfolio, the new service empowers customers with choice and delivers the flexibility to easily move critical applications and data from on-premises to the cloud and vice versa, Oracle said.

Customers can continue using the familiar Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) commands for seamlessly and securely performing backup and recovery operations between on-premises Oracle Databases and the Oracle  Cloud.

The backup service also enables customers to parallelize and compress backup data transfers to help maximize performance and includes client-side encryption to provide end-to-end data security.

Oracle Storage Cloud is API compatible with OpenStack Swift and provides access to data through REST and Java APIs.

“To remain competitive in today’s highly connected business environment, organizations are increasingly adopting and building new cloud-based solutions. There is also a huge push to migrate existing on-premises workloads to the public cloud and support portability between on-premises and cloud environments,” said Chris Pinkham, SVP, Product Development, Oracle.

The new services help customers achieve these goals, Pinkham added. They are based on open standards, integrated to work together seamlessly and designed to support full portability between on-premises and cloud environments, he said.
