Content and Overview
Information presented in this course provides Oracle Database Administrators the knowledge and experience to perform  backup and recovery activities on Oracle databases.

Through this extensive course, you’ll learn all of the using RMAN to manage backup and recovery activities on Oracle databases. After every concepts lecture, you will implement a hands-on practical exercise. To guide you on implementing the practices, the practice lectures are supported by video-based demonstrations and the downloadable guide documents.

Starting with introducing the Oracle RMAN architecture, this course will take you all the away from performing basic database backup up to implementing advanced backup options on the produced backups.

You will understand and practically produce all the possible RMAN backup strategies and types, including  whole/partial, full/incremental, complete/incomplete, and online/offline backup. You will also implement advanced backup options, such as  compression, encryption, multisection, duplexing backups, and archival backups.

You will also simulate all known common recovery scenarios from losing database critical files, losing application data, and losing database non-critical files. You will cover the further RMAN capabilities, like RMAN Recovery Catalog, cross-platform data transportation, and cloning databases.

Beside all those technical practical skills, you will also understand the best practices on developing backup and recovery plans

This course covers the latest available backup and recovery technology provided by Oracle, that is Oracle Database Backup Cloud Service.

This is an opportunity for the students to gain practical experience on protecting the databases from future incidents.

Upon completing this course, you will be able to develop a practical backup and recovery for Oracle databases in production systems.
