We have an ongoing battle with our Infrastructure Architect, where they would like to incorporate all SQL Backups in the same solution as the server and filesystem backups which uses Commvault Simpana 9.
Our current SQL backups are backed up by the native SQL backups, and then bak file backups taken by Commvault.
In the past we attempted to use Commvault 7 with both SQL and Oracle, however this was a nightmare experience where servers ground to a halt, and restores would fail. I am being reassured that the newest versions is a lot better and we would not experience the same issues.
I along with the Oracle DBA's are very skeptical by this statement due to past issues, and in our experience have found no 3rd party app that better backsup SQL/Oracle than the inbuilt tools.
Has anyone had expereince of using Commvault Simpana 9, and can offer any feedback on experiences?
