Oracle Cloud Classic

You can use Commvault to perform streaming backups and recover instances in Oracle Cloud Classic from the CommCell Console.

Key Features



Additional information

Agentless backups and restores

Install the Virtual Server Agent on an Oracle Cloud Classic instance to act as a VSA proxy. A VSA proxy manages backup and restore operations for guest instances in your environment, eliminating the need to install agents on guest instances.


System Requirements

"Incremental forever" data protection

After an initial full backup, you can perform ongoing incremental backups to capture changes for the source instance.



You can restore full instances or guest files and folders.


Single point of administration

The CommCell Console provides advanced options for Commvault operations.

Using the CommCell Console, you can configure a virtualization client that serves as a single point of administration for an Oracle Cloud endpoint. You can perform backups and restores from the virtualization client, and perform other administrative tasks such as creating schedules and generating reports.

Creating a Virtualization Client

Automatic protection for all instances

By default, all instances are automatically selected for backup, to ensure that all instances are backed up.

Default Subclient Coverage

Instance conversion

When restoring an instance, you can choose to restore to a different hypervisor. This capability can be used to migrate instances to a different virtualization platform.

Virtual Machine Conversion


You can view information about each backed up instance, including information such as size of the data and the guest operating system.

Reports for Virtual Server Agents

Commvault Platform Features

The following features are available throughout Commvault and are not limited to the Virtual Server Agent.



Additional information

Policy-driven data protection

Policies drive operations to meet service level agreements (SLAs).

Block-level deduplication

Block-level deduplication compares blocks of data during backups. If instances contain identical blocks of data, block-level deduplication eliminates the storage of redundant data and reduces the size of data in storage.

Deduplication Overview

Built-in compression

Commvault storage policies automatically enable compression to reduce the quantity of data sent to storage.
