Course Description

Oracle Database 12c offers different features to enable a full recovery of the database in case of a failure. Depending on the Oracle system that is running, different solutions can be used. This course discusses the backup and recovery solutions available in Oracle Database 12c as well as the Oracle Database Server architecture. It will also explain and demonstrate how to configure Recovery Manager, RMAN, and how to create a recovery catalog for managing database backup, restore, and recovery processes. 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.
