HOW ACTIFIO & ORACLE WORK TOGETHER

Actifio uses the native functionality in Oracle RMAN to ingest data to create a golden copy, update it incrementally with changed blocks, and maintain it in an incremental-forever architecture. Actifio will hold the virtual image in its native format for efficient usage and all Oracle storage formats are supported, including raw volumes, file systems, and ASM.

Once a golden image is captured, this image can be in a ready-state for immediate use, de-duplicated for long term retention, or sent to a remote location for disaster recovery purposes.
