This section describes Storware Backup & Recovery generic mechanism for multiple scenarios where VM-level backup may not be enough.
With Storware Backup & Recovery you can prepare a custom script or invoke any backup command that produces backup artifacts (or just initiates an external backup process) on a remote host and stores backups to your backup provider.
With Application the backup you can extend your protection capabilities to:
- any remote applications with their own mechanisms
- hypervisor configuration
- files on remote hosts (physical, virtual, or containers)
- this includes shares, mounted object-storage buckets, LVM block devices, or virtually anything which can be presented as a file
- initiating external backup processes such as RMAN
Storware Backup & Recovery internal DB backup mechanism also uses Application backup. The mechanism uses predefined artifacts that simply need to be configured according to your needs.
