In this course, students learn how to perform backup and recovery based on the related Oracle Database architecture components. Various backup, failure, restore, and recovery scenarios are included so that students learn to evaluate their own recovery requirements and develop an appropriate strategy for backup and recovery procedures. This course includes an interactive workshop, with scenarios that provide participants with opportunities to diagnose and recover from several database related failure situations.



  1. Describe the Oracle Database architecture components related to backup and recovery operations
  2. Describe Oracle Database backup methods and recovery operations that can be used to resolve database failure
  3. Plan effective backup and recovery procedures
  4. Configure the database for recoverability
  5. Use Recovery Manager (RMAN) to create backups and perform recovery operations
  6. Use the Data Recovery Advisor to diagnose and repair failures
  7. Perform an encrypted database backup and restore
  8. Perform tablespace point-in-time recovery
  9. Use Oracle Flashback Technologies to recover from human error
