Oracle Database 12c – Backup and Recovery: Transporting Data and Performing PITR

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


Expected Duration
88 minutes

Using Data Transport, a feature in Oracle Database 12c, tablespace can be transported to other databases on the same or different platforms. It also enables the transportation of full databases. Another feature of Oracle Database 12c is Point-in-Time Recovery. This enables the recovery of one or more objects, for example tablespaces, to an earlier time without affecting other objects within the database. Point-in-Time Recovery can be performed at three levels: Tablespace, Table, and Database. This course will discuss and demonstrate how to perform data transportation and Point-in-Time Recovery. 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.
