What is your goal exactly?

Clonezilla is just a disc clone tool (to image or disc) - your system must be brought down to boot Clonezilla (from a bootcd for example).

You can find Clonezilla about info here: http://clonezilla.org/

Mondo can do much more, you install it on your Linux system (differs from Clonezila), it runs from your live system, backs up your system and it can create boot/recovery media.

You can find a presentation about Mondo here: http://trac.mondorescue.org/browser/devel/mondo-doc/mondo-presentation.odp

Thanks for such a nice info - but i was checking too and checked some reviews and found that speed issue is there with Mondo but not able to find any speed test comparison on Mondo vs clonezilla ? do you have any idea on this?

Why is speed important for you? Running Clonezilla means your system is offline and when using the same media for creating the backup implies that Clonezilla could be faster.

But you're mentioning 'Production', for me this means a 24x7 running server. If that's the case I'd choose Mondo. But if you've got fixed maintenance windows and are allowed to take down the machine for backup then you have a different case.

So brings me back to my question:

Heres my goal:

1. OS crashed recovery
2. That can be a app or db server specially Oracle so what could be the preferred one?
3. Data can be of big size because we have some standalone physical servers without any SAN or NAS connectivity
4. Speed point is just for my understanding and knowledge

For 1. both will do but you're now mentioning multiple servers and Oracle databases. I would not use any open source backup solution for production servers that run Oracle databases. But that's just my opinion.
