At The University of Toledo, we have leveraged Linux shell scripts, LVM snapshots, and Oracle SQLPlus to create nightly backups of all courses, content server data, and the Blackboard database to provide us with disaster protection. During this session, we will explain the procedures we use to create nightly backups with minimal downtime using technologies available to us without the purchase of expensive SAN hardware.
