Oracle Cloud backup questions:
Will I have it when I need it?
Yes: with the Oracle Database Backup Service, your backups are always accessible online and are available for recovery use when needed. You don’t need to go hunting for tapes!
Is it resilient?
Data is replicated across multiple storage nodes in the same geographic region, which protects against hardware failure and data corruption. For example, Oracle has multiple data centres in the UK, so your backups can themselves have multiple redundancy.
Is it secure?
Oracle Database Backup Service protects your data by providing end-to-end security. Your data stays confidential by being:
- encrypted at the source
- securely transmitted to the cloud
- securely stored in the cloud
You keep the keys at your site, not in the cloud. As a result of the strong competition between cloud providers, a security scandal would be disastrous for Oracle, so it stands to reason that security is a priority for them.
How much work is involved?
Oracle Database Backup Service is simple to deploy and easy to use. We'll guide you through the process, giving you as much as help as you need. You can even trial it before fully committing.
How much is it going to cost?
It is charged by terabyte per month, and it depends on the amount of data you need to back up, but we think you’ll find it refreshingly inexpensive! Backup compression is included free of charge, which conserves bandwidth by reducing the size of your backups before they’re sent to the cloud.
Once you’re using the Oracle Database Backup Service, you get access to an online dashboard to monitor how much storage capacity you’re using over time, and then get more (or less) as needed. So there are no nasty surprises.
As we’re an Oracle Gold Partner, we will be able to get you lower prices than going direct to Oracle, and we'll beat any other like-for-like quotes, guaranteed.
