Xtremio Snapshots and Oracle

I'm looking to automate the creating of snapshots on Xtremio of an Oracle database and mounting the snapped database to another host. I was wondering is there any useful documents out there.

Thanks

Appsync not an option?

Re: Xtremio Snapshots and Oracle

AppSync is a tool that provides the option to take application (or crash) consistent snapshots and then mount it on another host (for test, dev, QA, etc). There are a lot of other functionalities that I recommend you explore.

Optionally, you can use RestAPI interface to take snapshots and mount it on hosts as well. Take a look at the RestAPI documentation for XtremIO on the Support website.

Re: Xtremio Snapshots and Oracle

I have the RestAPI's working, I wondering about the mechanics of adding the snapshot to an Oracle instance.

I will explore Appsync in the future, I would like to understand the whole process from the ground up.

Re: Xtremio Snapshots and Oracle

What do you mean by adding the snapshot to an Oracle instance? If you take a consistent snapshot for the DB, the snapshot should act like a new Oracle instance - correct?

Re: Xtremio Snapshots and Oracle

What I would like to do is snapshot the asm volumes and present these volumes to another system.

And I want to automate as much of the process as possible.

So that user intervention is kept to a minimum.

So, you would need to identify the LUNs on which the DB has been installed. You can take a consistent snapshot across those LUNs and present those snapshots to the other system. All of this can be scripted using RestAPI today.
