8 Technology overview This section presents a summary of the technologies used in the VCE solution. Solution components The solution uses the following hardware and software components and technologies. See the Appendix for a description of each of these products and technologies. Vblock Systems Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Enterprise Edition Oracle Real Application Clusters Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12 EMC Avamar EMC Avamar Data Store 8

9 Architecture overview Logical layout Figure 1 shows the overall logical architecture of the environment. Figure 1 Logical architecture: Oracle EBS Backup and Recovery with Avamar The logical architecture diagram shows: There is a single-node Avamar solution backing up data. There are Avamar clients and proxies running on Vblock Systems. During nightly backups the Avamar agents copy the changed variable-length blocks from the Avamar grid and create a virtual full backup from only the changed variable-length blocks. The Avamar software is used to schedule the backup jobs and to monitor and report on both backup and Avamar system status. 9

10 Figure 2, below, also describes backup and recovery with Avamar. Figure 2: Oracle E-Business Backup Solution Overview with Avamar Physical layout Figure 3 shows the physical architecture deployed for Avamar with Oracle R12 EBS. Figure 3. Physical layout: Oracle EBS Backup and Recovery with Avamar 10

11 The physical architecture diagram shows: 1. The Avamar client connects to the database tier for Oracle R12 EBS to perform the backup and restore operations. 2. The Application Tier is installed on the database, and the application data is stored in the database. 3. The Avamar grid interacts to backup from and restore data to the database 4. Vblock Systems: For the compute, storage and network layers, the Oracle R12 EBS application is deployed across multiple virtual machines to process Oracle Financial operations key to the business. 5. Nexus 5548 (which is integral to the Vblock Systems) is directly connected to the Nexus 7000 for all network services. 6. Downstream from the Nexus 5548 everything is connected as per standard Vblock Systems. All the hosts and VMs are inside Vblock Systems and get network service from the Nexus Hardware and software components Table 1 shows the hardware resources used in this solution. Table 1.

13 Design considerations Oracle backup and recovery requires both instance and database recovery to resolve data and system failures. As such, copies of the database files, archive log files, and operating system binary files must be backed up to Avamar on a regular basis and be available for a restore and recovery operation. For details regarding Oracle backup and recovery procedures, see Oracle Database Backup and Recovery User's Guide 11g Release 1 (11.1) at: EMC Avamar provides a feature-rich suite of tools to perform backup and recovery for the Oracle database and the Oracle EBS by using a variety of software based plug-ins. For example, to backup and restore the Oracle EBS application tier, since it is file-based binaries, the Linux operating system plug-in is used to backup and restore the application tier servers within the Oracle R12 EBS environment. To backup and restore the database tier servers for Oracle R12 EBS, Avamar provides a plug-in that interfaces directly with the Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) database layer. In addition to core backup and recovery features, Avamar also provides advanced backup and recovery options by using a policy-based system. Filters can be setup and applied based on time, date, retention period, and nature of the backup and restore operation for Oracle. These features within Avamar remediate the limitations present within the native operating system and Oracle database utilities. Furthermore, preand post-custom scripts can also be deployed to simplify the backup and recovery operations for a given customer Oracle environment. Compute configuration Three Cisco UCS blades were used and mapped to three virtual machines, as shown below. 13

14 The Summary tab lists the general technical information and resources used for the configuration. Network configuration As shown in the Summary screenshot in the previous section, each of the Oracle VMs used a standard port group switch for communication purposes. 14

15 Storage design This solution uses the VNX based storage arrays provided in the Vblock Systems. The EMC VNX series is a dedicated network server optimized for file and block access that delivers high-end features in a scalable and easy-to-use package. The VNX series delivers a single-box block and file solution that offers a centralized point of management for distributed environments. This makes it possible to dynamically grow, share, and cost-effectively manage, multiprotocol file systems and to provide multiprotocol block access. Administrators can take advantage of simultaneous support for NFS and CIFS protocols by enabling Windows and Linux/UNIX clients to share files by using the sophisticated file-locking mechanisms of VNX for File and VNX for Block for high-bandwidth or for latency-sensitive applications. Following, are the storage data tables. Table 3 presents the VM storage information.

16 Virtualization configuration VMware vsphere 5.1 was deployed as the hypervisor virtualization component for Oracle and Avamar on the Vblock 300. A total of three virtual machines (VM) were created within VMware vcenter and mapped to three ESXi hosts. The following screenshot shows a sample configuration for each virtual machine for the database and application server configuration. Since the Oracle EBS application tier houses lightweight application server processes, total requirements for application processing are less than that used for the database tier server. Multiple application server node VMs were used to load balance and boost overall throughput as recommended by Oracle, EMC, and VMware best practices. For the database tier server, the following single VM was configured: 16

17 Application configuration After the infrastructure deployment for Oracle and Avamar was completed, the Oracle R12 EBS was installed and configured with the Oracle Linux operating system according to best practices and guidelines from Oracle, EMC and VMware. Two application tier servers were deployed to optimize performance and availability for concurrent batch processing and OLTP based workloads. In addition, best practices for the configuration of the concurrent managers and batch processing were optimized for the environment. A single Oracle database tier was deployed to complete the configuration. The following shows the overall architecture for the deployed Oracle EBS environment. First, we have the application tier nodes running under the Oracle Linux 6 platform: The second application tier node has the same configuration as shown above. The database tier has the following configuration: Within the Oracle 11g SQL*Plus utility the overall database configuration is shown below: 17

18 Archive log mode was enabled as this is a requirement for hot backups with Oracle and Avamar. Oracle EBS To demonstrate a realistic workload, the Oracle Financial batch processes shown in the following screenshot were executed on the live environment during and after backup and recovery operations. EMC Avamar EMC Avamar and the Avamar client software were installed and configured according to EMC Avamar 6.1 documentation. 18

19 VCE Data Protection Overview With Vblock Systems Data Protection products, VCE provides end-to-end solutions that are designed to meet their unique infrastructure needs. Customers can now add new levels of data protection to Vblock Systems, or they can convert their existing non-emc, or non-vce, data protection solutions to a VCE solution. The VCE Data Protection solutions include: EMC Avamar - Deduplication backup system and software that provides highly efficient, variable length deduplication, with tight integration to EMC purpose-built, backup appliances. Avamar enables fast, complete daily backups of virtualized environments including the entire IT infrastructure, enterprise applications, and data. Deduplication on the client side reduces ESXi contention and network traffic thus shortening backup times. EMC Avamar plus Data Domain - Dual options: Avamar targets the Avamar Data Store in your solution. Or, for larger, high-change-rate workloads, the target can be a Data Domain system that provides high speed, variable-length, inline deduplication. The result is a backup data storage footprint that on average is 10x-30x smaller than a traditional backup footprint. EMC VPLEX - VPLEX enables administrators to share, protect, or load-balance data across multiple Vblock systems in the same data center or in different data centers within a campus or metro area. They can non-disruptively move live virtual machines between locations to avoid downtime. VPLEX also handles unplanned events automatically for application recovery time. 19

20 Solution validation The validation information is provided for backup and recovery categories, followed by a table of objectives for the project, and a table that correlates the objectives to the described actual tests performed. Backup and recovery test category summaries Oracle backup and recovery is a complex topic. To explain the objectives, process, and test plans, below are detailed summaries on the major types of backup and recovery to be performed for the solution. The backup and recovery types comprise 4 categories. The 4 categories explained below are reflected in the actual tests executed. For the solution, backup and restore service (BRS), operational agility was tested from a hot online backup from Avamar, a cold offline backup, and a point-in-time recovery for Oracle R12 EBS. Also tested was an optional incremental backup and recovery. Category 1: Hot online backup and recovery Table 6 presents the features of hot online backup and recovery. Category 1: Hot online backup and recovery Description Benefit Tradeoff Backup window Retention period Backup schedule Oracle hot backup and recovery provides the highest level of RTO in comparison to cold backups since the database and application is able to remain online and available during the backup process. There is a slight maintenance window of downtime however during a restore and recovery process due to the fact that the database logs must be applied to resolve the data failure. High level RTO and RPO Some performance impact and additional maintenance involved with storage requirements for archive redo log files and read/write operations impact from Avamar with Oracle. 4 hours estimated online no downtime 10 days (varies per business requirements) Daily during non-peak business hours of operation 20

21 Category 2: Cold offline backup and recovery Table 7 presents the features of cold offline backup and recovery. Category 2: Cold offline backup and recovery Description Benefit: High RPO Tradeoff: Higher RTO Backup window Retention period Backup schedule Oracle cold backups are beneficial to ensure against data loss thus ensuring a high level of RPO. However since the application and database must be taken offline during the backup and restore operation, there is some downtime involved for the application to complete a cold offline backup and restore. All committed data in place before the database and application is shutdown that has been backed up is able to be restored completely given that the backup image is not corrupted. Thus, a cold backup has the highest level of RPO for Oracle backups. Some downtime is involved since the application and database services must be taken offline to perform the cold backup for Oracle EBS. 4 hours estimated (actual to be determined via testing process). 10 days (varies by business requirements). Weekly. Category 3: Point-in-time restore/recovery (PITR) Table 8 presents the features of point-in-time restore/recovery. Category 3: Point-in-time restore/recovery (PITR) Description Benefit Tradeoff Backup window Retention period Backup schedule Recover to point in time before data failure occurred. Best RTO for BRS with Oracle and Avamar. Provides restore only to point-in-time, versus a complete recovery from a sitewide disaster. PITR is best suited to supplement a weekly full backup in the event that, for example, a user accidentally drops a table from a schema. Estimated 10 minutes to 30 minutes based on recovery amount of redo to be applied for PITR restore. 10 days (varies by business requirements). On demand when event occurs that requires PITR to be performed, versus a full restore and recovery. 21

22 Category 4: Incremental backup/recovery (optional) Table 9 presents the features of incremental backup/recovery (optional). Category 4: Incremental backup/recovery (optional) Description Benefit Tradeoff Backup window Retention period Backup schedule Incremental backup and recovery supplements a traditional cold or hot full backup by capturing only delta changes in blocks during application and database processing. For large bulk processing warehouses that load different amounts of massive volume transactions which change on a frequent basis, an incremental backup may prove useful to save on time (RTO) to restore an environment. Provides partial backup and recovery for point-in-time scenarios and uses less storage for capture only changes made since last full backup operation. Less than a full restore is not possible. Must use a full recovery as well. Varies from 10 minutes to few hours (to be tested and determined). 10 days (varies per business requirements). Weekly. Validation objectives This validation is focused on how to back up the virtual Oracle E-Business environment. The following objectives are related to showing how to restore data when there is a corruption within E-Business (which can happen within the Oracle E-Business integrated environment or supporting components), or when there is a failure with VM due to power outage, or there are failed processes, or other failures. The objectives are: 1. Deploy Oracle EBS R12 on Vblock Systems 300 with EMC VNX 5300 and perform functional testing with VMware vsphere 5.1 Data Protection. 2. Measure baseline backup performance and ensure best performance on Vblock Systems 300 for Oracle. 3. Simulate application tier node failure and perform data recovery with no data loss for Oracle EBS. 4. Simulate database tier failure and show that data recovery with Avamar produces no data loss. 5. Implement point in time recovery (PITR) from Avamar for the Oracle R12 EBS. Test environment design Since both application and database tiers are involved with backup and recovery of the Oracle R12 EBS, additional tasks are required in the design and implementation of the backup and recovery service (BRS) architecture and configuration versus a traditional Oracle OLTP or data warehouse environment. 22

23 Tests and test procedures The test scenarios cover all of the key goals for the objectives, and reflect the stated categories for Oracle backup and recovery. There are 5 different test sections: Test 1: Hot online backup and recovery Test 2: Cold offline database backup for Oracle EBS with Avamar Test 3: Test 3 Point-in-time restore and database recovery for Oracle EBS with Avamar Test 4: Test 4 Oracle Backup and Recovery with VMware Data Protection 5.1 Test 5: Perform Backup and Recovery with VDP for Oracle EBS App Tier Test acceptance criteria Successful test results will meet the following test acceptance criteria. 1. Backup performance: - Measure data throughput (TB/Hour) for back-up tasks and calculate daily backup volume. - Optimize speed as needed. 2. Recovery performance metrics and test results: - Recovery Time Objective (RTO), the duration of time and a service level within which a business process must be restored after a disaster (or disruption) must be met. - Recovery Point Objective (RPO), the maximum tolerable period in which data might be lost from an IT service due to a major incident typical for database applications, must be met. - Avamar helps contribute to RTO and RPO objectives. In addition, an end-to-end backup and recovery process with emphasis on handling on a virtualized Oracle EBS environment, and that highlights the benefits of deploying Oracle on Vblock Systems, must be documented. 23

24 Test 1 Hot online backup and recovery This test is to measure hot online backup and recovery processes for Oracle with Avamar. Test 1 objectives are to show that: 1. Application and database recovery minimizes data loss. 2. Applications and database all function correctly after recovery is performed. 3. Recovery time (RTO) is shortened due to online recovery functionality. Test 1 Environment Most customers automate the process for backup and recovery during low activity maintenance windows so that users are not impacted during business operation hours. For the solution, a typical customer standard backup window and schedule of days was implemented. Avamar uses the concept of a dataset to pre-configure a standard set of backup operations including backup type, schedule, and retention period. Procedure: 1. Configure Avamar for Oracle RMAN backup. 2. Install Avamar client software for Oracle RMAN and Oracle Linux client per the EMC Avamar 6.1 documentation. 3. Configure the schedule and backup policy for Oracle EBS data sets. The following screenshot shows the data set created for the backup solution with Avamar and Oracle EBS. 24

25 4. Select the Options tab. The Select Plug-In Type window opens. 5. Review fields to ensure that all is correct. 25

26 6. Click Tools and Manage All Datasets, or click Tools and Manage All Schedules. 7. The corresponding window opens (either Manage All Datasets or Manage All Schedules): 8. From the Avamar main window, above, click Tools and then click Manage Retention. The Manage All Retention Policies window appears. Here, the settings can be reviewed or edited. 9. Click OK to exit. The backup set has successfully been created for the required data set with Avamar and Oracle. 26

27 Test 1 Procedures The task is to perform a full Oracle RMAN online hot database backup. Oracle hot database online backups allow you to make a database backup while the database and application remain online thus minimizing impact to the availability of the Oracle EBS environment 1. Perform an on demand backup for Oracle with Avamar. Avamar uses the Oracle RMAN plug-in software to perform the database backups for Oracle EBS. The retention period was set to 30 days for the database backup policy. The initial hot backup taken was a hot online database backup that included a control file and archive log full backup. Incremental (level 0/1) backups were taken after the initial full online database backup to save on disk space required to capture deltas in the application backup environment. 2. In addition, a level 0 and level 1 full incremental hot database backup was taken by Avamar for Oracle, by specifying the advanced options in the Avamar backup configuration. Either can be set up as shown for Level 1 backup below: 27

28 3. When the backups have completed, the status can be verified in the Activity Monitor tab. 28

29 Test 1 Results Multiple RMAN channels were implemented to improve database backup performance for the solution. For this solution, the default retention period for the database backups was set to 30 days. Oracle Avamar online database backup performance data results for the Oracle EBS and Avamar hot online backup and recovery are shown in Table 10. Table 10 shows Oracle EBS and Avamar hot online backup and recovery performance data results. Hostname Application Backup Type Total Runtime Backup Size ebsdb01 Database Tier Hot online full 50m:06s 159.4Gb ebsdb01 Database Tier Level 0 Incremental online ebsdb01 Database Tier Level 1 Incremental online ebsapp01 Application tier Full online file system ebsapp01 Application tier Full online file system 15m:09s 1m:06s 8m:33s 11m:57s 159.3Gb 20.5Mb 90.5Gb 89.4Gb Both the database tier and the application tier backups were performed. The total runtime and backup size are also provided for each test run. As expected, the results show: There was no downtime during the backup There was a high level RTO Short total runtime was obtained. The total time to run the backups was estimated at 240 min., while the actual total runtime achieved was only 86 min: 51 seconds 29

30 Test 2 Cold database backup for Oracle EBS with Avamar This test is to run and measure a cold offline database backup for Oracle EBS with Avamar. Test 2 objectives: 1. Show that full application and database recovery fulfills requirements for minimal to zero data loss (RPO). 2. Show that performance for backup and recovery is optimal for a full database backup. Test 2 Environment The test environment was as described in the above sections, except that for this test the Oracle cold database offline backups are performed when the Oracle EBS environment has been quiesced and shut down for maintenance purposes. Test 2 Procedures First, the Oracle application and database tiers must be cleanly shutdown and taken offline, and only then can the backup for Oracle with EBS be set up. Both procedures are described below. 1. The following tasks were performed to prepare Oracle EBS for Avamar cold offline backup: ~]$ echo $ORACLE_HOME /d01/oracle/vis/db/tech_st/ ~]$ echo $ORACLE_SID VIS ~]$ sqlplus '/as sysdba' SQL*Plus: Release Production on Fri Mar 29 13:26: Copyright (c) 1982, 2008, Oracle.
