Existing database backup tools are blunt weapons. They provide protection for full data sets, but require significant time to do so. Recovering those backups is a major effort, since the entire database (last full backup and then incremental backups in sequence) needs to be restored in order to get to the small set of data needed.
As data volumes have grown, historical backups are often moved to tape, making recovery take even longer. For many firms, database backups are simply too large to fit in nightly backup windows, so these systems are backed up only at monthly intervals or worse. Simply put, databases have grown beyond the ability of most backup solutions.
Delphix eliminates the need for separate database backup solutions. By recording all changes to a database and storing these very efficiently, Delphix provides fast, easy, and comprehensive access to historical data. Delphix eliminates the need for regular full backups by providing a continuous history of all changes to a database. This dramatically reduces load on production databases, since repeated full backup jobs can be eliminated.
Delphix provides superior RTO, RPO, and data granularity compared to traditional backup solutions. Delphix can deliver RPO in seconds, RTO in minutes, and continuous data granularity, while reducing production database backup loads by 90%.
