7 Backing Up and Restoring Autonomous Transaction Processing

This section describes backup and recovery tasks on Autonomous Transaction Processing.

About Backup and Recovery on Autonomous Transaction Processing

Autonomous Transaction Processing automatically backs up your database for you. The retention period for backups is 60 days. You can restore and recover your database to any point-in-time in this retention period.

Manual Backups

You do not have to do any manual backups for your database as Autonomous Transaction Processing backs up your database automatically. You can do manual backups using the cloud console; for example if you want to take a backup before a major change to make restore and recovery faster. The manual backups are put in your Cloud Object Storage bucket. When you initiate a point-in-time recovery Autonomous Transaction Processing decides which backup to use for faster recovery.

Recovery

You can initiate recovery for your Autonomous Transaction Processing database using the cloud console. Autonomous Transaction Processing automatically restores and recovers your database to the point-in-time you specify.

Listing Backups

The list of backups available for recovery is shown on the Autonomous Database Details page under Backups.
