Unplanned failures can represent significant risk to the business by stopping back-office operations, thus impacting revenue. Backing up and protecting databases prepares the business to recover from an unplanned failure. In this test, we performed a restore from the Data Domain system backed up to the Oracle Database servers. The goal of this use case was to test how fast and how successfully this reference architecture can restore and recover a 1.8 TB Oracle database that was protected using the Data Domain system.
The following figure shows the use case 3 architecture:

In this use case, the total time captured includes:
In this test, our 1.8 TB Oracle database was fully restored and successfully recovered from backup in 25 minutes with just 15 percent average CPU utilization on the Oracle database server.
