    Overview

    Amazon Glacier is a secure, durable, and extremely low-cost cloud storage service for data archiving and long-term backup. Customers can reliably store large or small amounts of data for as little as $0.007 per gigabyte per month, a significant savings compared to on-premises solutions. To keep costs low, Amazon Glacier is optimized for infrequently accessed data where a retrieval time of several hours is suitable.

    Oracle Database Backup Service is a secure, scalable, on-demand solution for storing Oracle Database backups in Oracle Cloud.

    Oracle databases are backed up to Oracle Database Backup Service using the Oracle Database Cloud Backup Module. The module is available from Oracle Technology Network (OTN) and is tightly integrated with Recovery Manager (RMAN), so you can continue to use familiar RMAN commands for backup and restore operations.
