Oracle Database 12c – Backup and Recovery: Performing and Managing Backups

Database administrators, support engineers, technical administrators, and data warehouse administrators who wish to develop appropriate strategies for backup, restore, and recovery procedures


Expected Duration
116 minutes

Oracle Database 12c allows backups to be performed and managed using Recovery Manager, RMAN. Multiple different backup strategies can be used that are a combination of different types of backups, including incremental, full, block media recovery, and encrypted backups. This course will discuss and demonstrate how to identify backup requirements and strategies as well as how to perform and manage backups. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that helps prepare the learner for the Backup and Recovery portion of the Oracle exam 1Z0-063, Oracle Database 12c: Advanced Administration.
