Tivoli Field Guide: Offload Oracle RMAN Incremental Backups using IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for ERP and IBM Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager
Tivoli Storage Manager for Enterprise Resource Planning (TSM for ERP) v6.3 can be used to shift the process of Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) incremental backup to a dedicated offload host. TSM for ERP works together with the IBM software Tivoli Storage FlashCopy Manager to use the storage snapshot technologies. That means a reduction to almost zero impact to the production hosts during the RMAN incremental backup process, because the traditional TSM tape backup is performed on the offload host.
