How does Rman fit into this picture? Are you saying he should run a Physical Stand-by system just to fix a backup issue? It's not a horrible idea. But I'm wondering what the cost-benefit-ratio would be. Acquiring a completely new server and stocking it with enough disk to hold the database and the archivelog files?  

Doesn't sound like a reasonable financial solution to me.

Here's a, perhaps, wild, thought. Could you establish Physical Standby databases on (an)other server(s)? Then you could let your Prod datbases automatically shovel the archived redo logs to them, periodically remove them from the Prod environment as you see they've been transferred to the Standbys. You could also gzip them on the Standby side to further save space. Gzip is such a CPU hog that I'd not want it running on the Prod server.

You'd also get disaster recovery databases in the process. Just a thought.
