Oracle Backup and Recovery Essentials
Source: Veritas (Symantec)
This paper will discuss the fundamentals and essentials that every Oracle database administrator (DBA) should know and follow when creating their Oracle backup, restore and recovery strategy. Alternative Oracle backup methods such as block-level incremental backup, split-mirror backup and server-free backup will also be discussed. The Oracle RMAN backup and recovery strategy discussed will be useful to all Oracle DBAs, whether they are responsible for managing a small 1 GB or a large multiterabyte or petabyte database. This paper will also talk about the future direction of Oracle database backup and recovery.
