  • A new “Recovery Validation” feature for Oracle in Andes 5.3 will allow for validation and recovery tests that ensure an Oracle database is recoverable;
  • New SLA policies can be applied to Rubrik Elastic App Service or managed volumes, enabling full backup automation; and
  • NAS restore performance has improved 3x and NetApp scanning performance has doubled, allowing for 35 million files to be scanned in less than 15 minutes.
