Oracle Announces Back-up and Storage Cloud Services

As part of its commitment to providing its advanced cloud portfolio, Oracle is launching a new Database Backup Service and a new Storage Cloud Service. 

Oracle Database Backup Service is positioned as a simple, scalable, and low-cost Oracle Database cloud backup solution.  It is integrated with Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), enabling customers to continue using familiar RMAN commands for seamlessly and securely performing backup and recovery operations between on-premises Oracle Databases and the Oracle Cloud. The service also enables customers to parallelize and compress backup data transfers to help maximize performance and it includes client-side encryption.

Oracle Storage Cloud is positioned as a solution to simplify and lower capital and operational costs for storing data backups and archives with high reliability and security.  It is API compatible with OpenStack Swift and provides access to data through REST and Java APIs.
