Nutanix ERA – How To Protect Database Data v2

A while ago i posted a blog about how to protect database data for DBs managed by Era. The blog post was based on a Nutanix public document i put together and it can be found here here

This is just a short blog post to let you know that the Nutanix document has since been updated to reflect the new capabilities with Era version 2.1 that was released Jan 5:th 2021.

The most obvious change to the document is based on the new Era, version 2.1, capability to secure database transaction log files to a Nutanix cluster where the DB VM is not running. This will dramatically reduce the Era cross Nutanix cluster recovery point objective (RPO) capability from hours to minutes.

The document also contains a comparison between the five options. Download your copy of the Era Database Protection v2 document here
