Database Best Practice

Ensure Your Backup Policy Meets Your Customer's RTO

Working with the customer, determine the Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) for all your databases. From this you can successfully architect a backup policy that will succeed. Concerning the architecture chosen, once again remember: SIMPLE = MATURE.

It is very wise to backup your database using more than one method, i.e. use both RMAN and routine exports as required. This not only gives you redundancy but optimum data restoration options. Disaster recover to fine grained schema object restoration without having to perform a full RMAN restore on another system just to extract the data you need.
