Backing up directly to another Solaris machine

I need to backup an Oracle database, but there is not enough disk space on the Solaris server on which it resides. Is it possible to write a backup script that backs up the database directly to another Solaris machine?

Sure. Just point the datafile copies to the other machine. You may find some scripts of help at (Oracle FAQ).
