Oracle Database - Waterlog
Oracle NAS (Networked Attached Storage) managed by STS. Raid 6 system with 40 terrabytes of space. STS Fiber SAN managed by STS. This is the STS mandated storage medium and backed up through Enterprise Backups.
Oracle Database Enterprise 11.2.3 NAS mounted and managed through Windows CIFS (Common Internet File System). Oracle Exports and Hot online backups are used to backup the data SAN storage from where it is backed up to the Enterprise backups. Expected to use .doc, .docs, .xls, .xlx, .pdf, and .tif file formats.
STS Data Center South
NAS stores 31 daily snapshots. In addition, full backups are taken monthly with incremental backups taken daily. The monthly backups are stored offsite for 7 years. With both methods considered, we can restore to any of the past 31 days if the file(s) existed during the time of either the snapshot or the backup, to one of the full monthly backups from up to 7 years prior. Oracle Database is run in archive log mode and all redo logs are backed up daily. Hot backup of all data files is done on weekends.
Recovery Procedure: Helpdesk tickets to STS as Priority 1 can restore file(s) in 2 hours' time if restoring to a point within the past 31 days. If later (as tapes must come from offsite), expected Priority 1 recovery time is 5 hours. Major Disaster Recovery: STS has a written policy on how to handle major disaster recovery. In summary: order new hardware if required. Receive, configure and verify setup and connectability. Install required software to restore from image files and/or tapes. Inventory media and image files, restore.
