Backup Manager users can back up Oracle databases powered by Oracle Database 11g (Standard and Enterprise editions). The minimum backup unit is a database.
Backup procedure overview
Backup files are created by means of Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) and saved to the folder you specify (the backup folder). A full database backup is performed including the Control File and the Server Parameter File. Backup Manager processes the backup files for secure and efficient transfer and sends them to storage. The files can be cleared immediately after backup or later (depending on your settings).
