Oracle Backup and Recovery Strategies: Moving to Data-Protection-as-a-Service
Backup in many Oracle shops specifically, as with many organizations generally, is viewed as a necessary evil with a process
that is bolted on as an afterthought. Many IT organizations either under-fund backup or (in some cases) over-engineer backup
where rigorous procedures may not be required. Wikibon surveys show that more than 50% of IT organizations consider their
backup strategy to be a “one-size-fits-all” approach. Moreover, 1/3 of practitioners in the Wikibon community want to achieve
data-protection-as-a-service but they don’t know how to get there.
