  • Oracle 21c - multi-threaded transmission, archivelog backup, and rollback transaction restore are the supported advanced features and everything can be easily managed by a wizard-driven web console.

 

Enhancements

  • GFS retention policy - it is now possible to maintain backups for weeks, months, or years for long-term data retention.
