Hi all,

We currently have a setup which makes a standby copy of the production DB every week, and then from that standby copy there are 8 or so deduplicated children created using NetAPP technology I believe.

Is there any way to do something like this in Azure, whereby the standbyDB takes 100% disk space as the PROD_DB, and then the children copies only store delta information?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, including software that may exist to manage this process automatically.

thanks!
Mike

Sounds as though you need Direct NFS clones, here's a tutorial:

Hi John, this looks exactly like what I need! will investigate and watch the tutorial... I'm guessing we setup NFS in Azure on Oracle Linux then?

I am not familiar with Azure. But I do know a lot about Amazon Cloud and Oracle Cloud! I could set up something like for you there no problem. Remember that just because DNFS uses NFS, the "remote" file system doesn't have to be remote, it can be on the same machine.

Or there is another solution, that (now that I think about it) has to be the best: use ACFS. ACFS snapshots are a fully supported way of doing exactly what you describe, without any need for Sys Admin involvement. Do it all within the Grid Infrastructure environment.
