Oracle Secure Backup 19.1: Ransomware Protection with OCI Immutable Backups



Data protection is arguably one of the most critical and daunting tasks facing IT organizations. Ransomware threats make it necessary to store backups on immutable storage, so they can't be deleted or altered until they expire. Managing data protection of heterogeneous servers spread across data centers and remote offices, based on private, hybrid or public cloud requires a unified solution addressing the complexities of distributed environments consisting of both database and file system data. With a highly scalable client-server architecture, Oracle Secure Backup (OSB) delivers centralized cloud, disk, and tape backup management for the entire IT environment. Oracle Secure Backup 19.1 supports:

NEW: OCI Object Storage buckets with retention rules for immutability or ransomware protection or regulatory compliance
NEW: Client Direct to Cloud backup and restore operations, removing media servers from the critical data path
Easy deployment in OCI via Marketplace image and Ansible playbooks
Oracle database integration with Recovery Manager (RMAN) supporting versions Oracle Database 11g Release 2 to Oracle Database 23ai
OCI object storage, all tiers (standard, infrequent access, archive)
Cloud Storage and Archive support on the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure to protect your cloud environment or to store your backups off-site.
Enhanced “copy instance” for migrating long-term retention tape backups to OCI object storage
Automated, policy-based staging for easy Disk-to-Disk-to-Cloud and Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape backups.


While comparable products separately license advanced features, number and size of servers and database integration, Oracle Secure Backup does not! Oracle Secure Backup delivers comprehensive data protection management with enterprise-class features and Oracle database integration in one single solution with a simple licensing scheme based only on the number of utilized streams.

Why utilize Oracle Secure Backup?

Enterprise data protection for your entire IT environment—Protects heterogeneous file systems, OCI Compute Instances, NAS devices and built-in integration with the Oracle database on-premises and in the cloud.
Cloud Storage support—Provides protection of cloud environments or to implement tape-less vaulting.
Ransomware protection — Creates immutable backups in OCI Object Storage buckets with retention policies (WORM buckets)
Faster Cloud backup and restore operations — No need to have media servers, that can become bottlenecks and single points of failure, in the data path between the client and the cloud. With Client Direct to Cloud each client can directly access cloud storage.
Policy-driven media lifecycle management - Automates backup retention on disk, tape or cloud as well as backup image duplication and vaulting.
Staging—Simplify data movement between different storage technologies for simple and automated Disk-to-Disk-to-Tape and Disk-to-Disk-to-Cloud backups.
Backup encryption—Secures backup data and provides policy-based backup encryption key management.
Cost effective—Reduces licensing and associated ongoing maintenance costs by about 75% over comparable products.
MAA Validated for Exadata—Simplifies Exadata data protection using an Oracle Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA) Development team tested and validated tape backup solution.
Oracle Integrated—Optimized backup to disk performance when using the ZFS Storage Appliance as an Oracle Secure Backup disk pool.
