Kroll Ontrack Updates Recovery For Oracle Databases
Kroll Ontrack has upgraded its ‘do-it-yourself’ service recovery package for Oracle databases
In recognition of the vital role that databases play in the modern life of a large enterprise, help is now at hand to recover Oracle databases.
Kroll Ontrack has come up with its own approach to the problem. The Minneapolis-based storage and security software provider on 12 April made available an updated version of its Ontrack Data Recovery service specifically for Oracle systems.
Ontrack Data Recovery is a do-it-yourself service package that also works in fast-growing virtual environments, Kroll said. Data recovery projects can get complicated when databases are hosted inside virtual machines or in the cloud, and the interconnections aren’t nearly the same as when they reside inside the actual data centre.
Ontrack Data Recovery is designed to improve the success rate of recoveries from the following problems:
- Corrupt Oracle databases and logs. Kroll Ontrack supports most data types and Oracle databases currently in use today, including versions 8, 8i, 9i, 10g and 11g running on both x86 and Solaris platforms.
- Damaged Automatic Storage Management (ASM) file systems. Kroll Ontrack can recover Oracle data that is stored on ASM disk groups, including cases where ASM volume structures have been damaged or overwritten.
- Missing or deleted databases. Ontrack Data Recovery specialists can recover Oracle database files that have been deleted or are missing, even if the metadata has been overwritten.
