"Arkeia for Oracle8i Recovery Manager Protects Databases Running on 24/7 Production Servers"

"Knox Software, a Southern Calif.-based developer of enterprise network backup software, announced today that it has shipped Arkeia® for Oracle8i (tm) Recovery Manager (RMAN), a network backup solution for enterprise-class Oracle8i databases running on the Linux platform."

"Arkeia for Oracle8i RMAN provides Oracle® database administrators with a seamless, Oracle-tested solution for backing up Oracle8i (versions 8.1.6 or later) on Linux. Unlike conventional backup products that require Oracle8i to be taken offline prior to backup, the tight integration of Arkeia for Oracle8i RMAN with Oracle's RMAN data management API enables database administrators to both backup and restore databases while leaving their mission-critical production servers online. For Oracle8i applications that require 24/7 availability, Arkeia for Oracle8i RMAN provides the only Oracle-tested backup solution available today for Oracle8i in the Linux environment."

"As proof of the growing acceptance of Linux in the enterprise, Oracle8i for Linux is seeing significant deployment in heavy-duty production environments," said Doug Kennedy, vice president, Intel division, Oracle Corp. "Arkeia for Oracle8i RMAN gives Oracle8i administrators working with Linux the professional backup and restore capabilities that they've come to expect from running Oracle on other enterprise-ready platforms. In shipping this new product, Knox Software has taken a significant step in accelerating the adoption of Oracle8i on Linux in the enterprise."
