Mar 01, 1999, 09:10 (0 Talkback[s])

"Spectra Logic Corp. Monday announced that the company's Alexandria Backup and Archival Librarian(TM) software is the first major backup software to support "hot" backup of Oracle8 and Oracle Applications on the Linux operating system (OS)."

"During this week's LinuxWorld Conference and Expo being held at the San Jose Convention Center from March 1-3, the company will distribute free trial CDs of its Alexandria software with support for hot Oracle backup on Linux. The company will be exhibiting in booth No. 1546."

"In Oracle production environments, COBRA automatically discovers Oracle databases, including new tablespaces and datafiles, and puts the tablespaces into backup mode. Once the tablespaces are in backup mode and the datafiles are backed up, the tablespaces are taken out of backup mode."
