Backing Up Databases

  • Sam R. Alapati


This chapter deals with the crucial topic of backing up Oracle databases. One of the most fundamental tasks of the Oracle DBA is to ensure that the databases are backed up on a regular basis. Backups provide the basis of all database recoveries—no backup, no recovery. One of the best things you can do to help yourself as a DBA is to focus on a tried-and-tested strategy for backing up the database, because the more time you spend planning backups, the less time you’ll spend recovering the database from a mishap.
