  • On Monday, September 12, from 11am-12pm CT join Charles Kim and Nitin Vengurlekar for a webinar previewing Oracle Open World.

    Let us challenge your thoughts about backing up files to Oracle Cloud. Every customer should be considering RMAN backups of their databases to Oracle Cloud (if not already). Backing up the Oracle database to the cloud is just the tip of the iceberg. You have to think outside the box and consider the entire solution and include the non-database files such as middleware backups, documents, reports, logs, etc.
