Key benefits in Oracle database backup tools

  • When using RMAN mode, the tool provides incremental and differential backup of the Oracle database at the block level.
  • RMAN’s change tracking feature for incremental Oracle backup dramatically improves Oracle database backup performance by recording changed blocks in each data file in a change tracking file.
  • Time saving. Oracle database backup administrators don’t need to learn about the inner details of Oracle database techniques or backup database Oracle using complex scripts.

This Oracle database backup and recovery tool is also designed to backup Oracle database, especially essential bits of configuration information such as parameters, etc. according to best practices.

The Oracle database backup tools are compatible with Oracle backup database versions 10g and 11g.

Oracle backup software key benefits
1) If the natural interface to the data is files, then it is generally wise to avoid image level backups. Bacula Enterprise Edition’s technology instead provides granular restore, up to an individual transaction.

2) Regarding virtual environments, Bacula Enterprise Edition’s technology is not dependent on any specific hypervisor.

3) Bacula’s technology is one that Oracle admins know and understand, i.e. rman and its configuration. Bacula Enterprise provides a lot of additional flexibility by combining rman procedures with Bacula as a storage back-end.

The Bacula Enterprise Oracle database backup tool allows you to choose from a wide variety of different backup options.  Popular functionalities such as being able to restore your 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 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 for fast restore and disaster recovery.

Choosing Between Dump and RMAN
Feature Dump RMAN RMAN SBT
Can directly restore a single object (table, schema, etc.) Yes No No
Can directly restore a singlefile (index, db, tbs, etc.) No Yes Yes
Backup Speed Low High High
Restore Speed Low High High*
Backup size Small Big Big
Size on local disk during backup Nil Entire backup Nil
Size on local disk during restore Nil Entire restore Objects needed
Can restore to any point in time No Yes Yes
Incremental/Differential support No Yes Yes
Can restore in parallel Yes Yes Yes
Online backup Yes Yes Yes
Consistent 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 to restore and backup the data.
