RMAN Triggered Oracle Backups to Streamline Administration

To meet the needs of our customers, we added the capability to initiate backups from the client side in Zmanda 4.3 release. This was achieved by the integration of the RMAN-triggered Oracle backups feature.

With this newly introduced feature, the Oracle database backups can be triggered from client servers using RMAN (Recovery Manager) commands. Database administrators can take backups in an organization without having to log in to Zmanda Management Console(ZMC), thus making the backup process more convenient.

Also, this implementation allows users who are not familiar with ZMC interface to still successfully take backups when required. As promised, Zmanda ensures there is no compromise on your backups under any situation.
