Oracle Database in Amazon EC2 using AWS Backup and EFS for backup and restore

Using AWS Backup and Oracle RMAN for backup/restore of Oracle databases on Amazon EC2: Part 2

Customers running Oracle databases on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) often take database and schema backups using Oracle native tools like Data Pump and Recovery Manager (RMAN) to satisfy data protection, disaster recovery (DR), and compliance requirements. A priority is to reduce backup time as the data grows exponentially and recover sooner in case […]
