Overview/Description
Oracle Secure Backup uses a volume rotation policy to track a backup volume as it moves from its originating location to a storage location and is eventually recycled. This process is known as vaulting. This course covers configuring and using tape vaulting and a tape vaulting environment, viewing tape rotation reports, and troubleshooting vaulting. This course also explores the use of tape duplication, differentiating duplication from vaulting and migration, and configuring tape duplication. To understand how to tune backup and recovery performance, it is important to understand the performance characteristics of each component, so that you can maximize its performance. This course also demonstrates how to identify tunable hardware and software components, choose the optimize disk storage subsystem, list potential CPU-intensive server operations, choose the optimal tape subsystem and connections, analyze RMAN read operations, analyze media manager and write operations, and describe RMAN and OSB tuning dependencies. Performing an RMAN-encrypted database backup and restore operation and viewing OSB job transcripts and logs are also covered.

Target Audience
Database administrators, support engineers, security administrators, data warehouse administrators, sales consultants, technical consultants, and system analysts

Prerequisites
The ability to perform database backup and restore operations in Enterprise Manager at least equivalent to the level of the Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop I course, ideally equivalent to the level of the Oracle Database 11g: Administration Workshop II course

Expected Duration (hours)
1.5
