W. Curtis Preston, Chief Technology Evangelist

In our previous podcast, Oracle RMAN backup 101, our team explored the evolution of data protection for Oracle databases, and how RMAN has played a pivotal role in Oracle backups. oin our team once again as Nick Stachniak, an Oracle DBA for over 25 years, joins Stephen Manley and W. Curtis Preston on this episode to take a deeper dive into Oracle backups.

Nick explains how an RMAN image copy gives you all the benefits of the old SBT format, while giving several new advantages.
