Today’s organizations are increasingly adopting cloud-based IT solutions and migrating on-premises workloads to public clouds.
As part of the Oracle Cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) portfolio, Oracle Database Backup Service is a cloud-based storage solution for Oracle Database backups. This cost effective, scalable, low-cost backup solution can be used to consolidate storage infrastructure or as an integral part of a multi-tier database backup and recovery strategy.
New collateral is available for you to use and share with your customers.
