What’s new with Oracle 12C Release 2: RMAN Recovery Options

Posted by FatDBA on March 24, 2017

Hi Everyone,

Oracle introduced the long awaited Database 12c Release 2 earlier this year at Oracle Open World. The latest major release since 2013, originally announced in beta at Oracle Open World 2015, may have left some customers scratching their head after hearing the latest release would be what Oracle is calling “Cloud first availability”.

Some of the key Oracle Database 12c Release 2 highlights are:
Multitenancy improvements, which allow for more databases to run on a single machine, 4,096 to be exact, up from 252 in 12.1.
Performance increases with SQL Performance Analyzer, DB Replay and SQL Plan Management. Users can now increase query execution with the Optimizer Statistics Advisor, SQL JOIN processing.
Availability enhanced features in RMAN like table recovery, transport data across platforms, enhancements related to online operations and ongoing enhancements with Oracle Data Pump, SQL*Loader and external tables.

One of the coolest feature i have noticed during recent tests of Oracle 12c R2 was related with the RMAN recovery.
With this newest offering from Oracle Corporation now you can “RECOVER DATABASE UNTIL AVAILABLE REDO” 🙂

Hope That Helps
