Deployment for Oracle VM

The main component of the software is the CommServe system, which is used to manage all data protection operations. The CommServe system can be a server outside the Oracle VM deployment or a Windows virtual machine on an Oracle VM Server.

When the CommServe system is deployed within the Oracle VM environment, you can install the Virtual Server Agent (VSA) and MediaAgent on the same virtual machine as the CommServe system or on separate virtual machines in the Oracle VM deployment.

The Virtual Server Agent can be installed on one or more machines, so that those machines can serve as VSA proxies. A VSA proxy manages backup and restore operations for guest VMs in your environment, eliminating the need to install agents on guest VMs.

You can configure application-aware backups using the Virtual Server Agent to protect application data without installing guest agents on virtual machines.
