Oracle and Rubrik team up for Museum of London data solution

Rubrik's Oracle Recovery Manager data management tool to provide protection for Museum of London's database


The Museum of London has integrated Rubrik's Cloud Data Management platform with Oracle's Recovery Manager, collectively called Rubrik's Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), to improve data protection and management for its entire collection in its physical and virtual domain.

Rubrik's cloud platform solution will offer the museum an all-in-one data management solution for data retention and minimize costs associated with data recovery.

The museum was managed by Oracle database with an outside administrator which resulted in time-consuming data recovery. According to a Museum of London case study, Museum of London Achieves Fast Recovery for Mission-Critical Oracle Databases and Eliminates Tape, the integration of RMAN saw a 90% increase in efficiency, a 90% increase in restore time and has improved ease in restoring data from tapes.

Adam Monnery, head of ICT at the Museum of London, said: "Previously, our key objective was putting in place the right infrastructure to enable us to protect and scale our massive digital collection. Now, we’re focused on delivering value back to the business. This means adopting collaboration tools, mobilizing our workforce, and enabling our business to work cross-functionally.

"Rubrik is a critical piece of that puzzle," he added.

Additionally, according to the Museum of London's Strategic Plan for 2018–23, by 2023 the museum will aim to become a leader in London's museum and heritage sector, along with its new Smithfield location, which is under development.
