Oracle Database 11g R2: RMAN Backup & Recovery Training

Course#: WA1809

All of the data within a database installation is at risk unless one has designed, tested and implemented a robust backup and recovery strategy. The objective of this training module is to assist you in doing just that. Furthermore, when a major failure occurs, a variety of recovery and troubleshooting techniques must be employed. The focus of this course is the Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) tool. Additional facilities covered include the Data Recovery Advisor, Redo Log File Size Advisor and MTTR Advisor. It is tempting to short-cut appropriate backup procedures if they perform poorly, so special attention is giving to performance optimization.

Objectives

The objective of this training module is to assist you in designing, testing and implementing a robust backup and recovery strategy. Subjects include:

  • User-managed and automatically managed backup strategies and database recovery operations using RMAN and other database facilities.
  • Database instance recovery, tuning checkpoints, the Redo Log File Size Advisor and the MTTR Advisor.
  • User-managed recovery scenarios, including recovery from temporary, read-only and index tablespaces.
  • Automatically managed backup strategies and database recovery operations using RMAN and other database facilities. Complete and incomplete media recovery, including database point-in-time recovery and tablespace point-in-time recovery.
  • Build upon basic RMAN capabilities with a centralized recovery catalog. Deploy standardized and consistent backup and recovery procedures throughout the enterprise by means of dynamic stored scripts and variable substitution.
  • Optimizing backups for faster performance and parallelization of operations, employing compression algorithms and other strategies for optimum efficiency.
  • Data preservation through archival backups.
  • Duplicate databases for regulatory compliance, Real Application Testing database replay, test configuration and other purposes.
  • Detecting and handling failures and corruption, including the use of RMAN block recovery and the Data Recovery Advisor.

Audience

The primary target audiences for this course are:

  • Database administrators
  • Web server administrators
  • System administrators
  • Implementation specialists
  • Data center support engineers
  • Senior application designers and developers
