Popular functionalities such as being able to restore your Oracle database to any point in time, or being able to filter objects during Oracle database backup or restore will probably guide which techniques and options you decide use. Many users combine Dump and RMAN PITR techniques for the same cluster.
RMAN also allows you to use advanced Oracle database backup techniques where you can send the data over the Bacula Enterprise SBT interface to tape for example, and at the same time, on disk.
Types of Oracle backups – choosing Between Dump and RMAN
|Can directly restore a single object (table, schema, etc.)||Yes||No||No|
|Can directly restore a singlefile (index, db, tbs, etc.)||No||Yes||Yes|
|Size on local disk during backup||Nil||Entire backup||Nil|
|Size on local disk during restore||Nil||Entire restore||Objects needed|
|Can restore Oracle DB to any point in time||No||Yes||Yes|
|Incremental/Differential Backup Support||No||Yes||Yes|
|Can restore in parallel||Yes||Yes||Yes|
* When using RMAN SBT interface, the restore speed depends on various elements such as the type of media (tape or disk), the network speed, the availability of the storage daemon device, etc. In Bacula Enterprise Edition, the storage daemon device is able to use the same disk volume for multiple concurrent restores, so it is possible to use concurrent jobs for Oracle backup and recovery.
