System Backup for Oracle Solaris

Solaris bare-metal recovery

Creating full system backups of your Oracle Solaris systems have never been more crucial. With storage innovations such as ZFS and Solaris Volume Manager (SVM), you can tailor your storage for the best possible I/O performance and system availability using striping, mirroring, specific disk placement, etc. After a full system failure, recovering a Solaris server to its previous configuration can be a difficult and time-consuming task. Add a change in disk or system hardware to the process and you may experience days of downtime and lost revenues. 

A better Replacement for Flash Archive

Most systems administrators relied on flash archive as their tool of choice for bare-metal recovery of their Solaris systems. As of the release of Solaris 11, flash archive (flar images) are no longer available. This introduces the problem of having to reinstall the operating system prior to performing any data restores of a failed system. With Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), we provide superior restore capabilities to flash archive and support Solaris 11 as well as legacy Solaris systems.

More than just backup

While SBAdmin for Oracle Solaris is a tape and disk backup management solution with many advanced features for managing your user data backup strategy, it is the full system backup and recovery features that distinguishes SBAdmin from competing products. SBAdmin is the only product that provides Adaptable System Recovery (ASR), which is the unique ability to recover an entire Solaris system and install it onto the same or dissimilar hardware. More than just an insurance policy, many users rely on SBAdmin as a way to migrate production system to new hardware. For example, you can clone production systems from T2 sparc systems to newer T4 hardware without reinstalling the operating system. SBAdmin an ideal solution for hardware migrations, physical to LDOM migrations, and provisioning/cloning scenarios.
