This is an ITS-sponsored project for improvement of infrastructure. This project will change the method we use to back up our enterprise systems databases from Oracle Recovery Manager to the database snapshot method (a database snapshot is a consistent, read-only copy of a database). Switching to this method will reduce the time it takes to back up our databases.

This project will provide patches and hardware changes as needed. It will also reorganize the data disk so that log and error files can be segregated from the actual data in the databases, reducing the disk space needed to back up databases.

Update: Altavault License has been extended to May 2022, reducing the criticality of the project. The team has successfully completed and tested with Finance and will schedule work with other EA towers. The project will require us to create and document new back-up processes. The new plan is to complete all the work before the end of Altavault license period.
Original end date has been extended from October 21, 2021 to May 31, 2022.
