Backup to the Oracle Cloud and Beyond - Charles Kim, Viscosity NA

This month Oracle ACE Director Charles Kim joins us to challenge your thoughts about backing up files to the Oracle Cloud. Every customer who's not already doing so should be considering RMAN backups of their databases to the Oracle Cloud. But backing up your Oracle databases to the cloud is just the tip of the iceberg. You have to think outside the box and consider the entire application ecosystem. Consider the non-database files such as middleware backups, binary backups, documents, reports, logs, etc. and how to drive performance. In this month's session, Charles will present a deep-dive into backing up the database to the Oracle Cloud.

Oracle's Cloud Software Appliance is a game changer that lot of IT folks are not aware of. Let us demonstrate methods of uploading and downloading all types of files to the Cloud and how to drive performance. Demonstration of the Oracle Storage Cloud Software Appliance will be provided. Command-line interface to upload/download files directly to Oracle Cloud will be shared.
