Oracle, databases, Linux and maybe more

I’ll be presenting my brand new presentation “Using image copies for Oracle database backups” at ilOUG Tech Days on 30. May in Israel.

More information about the event can be found here

Abstract of my presentation:
When databases get ever larger and larger, backing them up using traditional RMAN backupsets will quickly get unfeasible. Completing a backup requires too much time and resources, but more importantly the same also applies to restores. RMAN has always provided a solution as incrementally updated image copies, but they are much less manageable than backupsets. This presentation goes into detail on how to successfully implement incrementally updated image copy backups, automate them and implement features that together with a capable storage system can provide almost everything that Oracle ZDLRA promises and beyond.

Looking forward to the event!
