I would much rather use an incremental strategy with compressed backupsets. However, I'm limited by what the other DBAs will agree to
(we currently use cold and hot user-managed backups).

It occurred to me that maybe you were basing this on the OEM suggested backup strategy. One major sort coming to this strategy is that it requires significant amounts of space (the image copies are not compressed). Personally, unless I need very fast recovery, I tend to shy away from this due to the size of the backup image. If I have a need for fast recoveries, then one can often justify stand-by database in those cases.

I'd prefer a compressed backupset myself, with incrementals.

Hello everyone,

The Oracle recommended strategy for backing up a 10g database is image copies with incremental updates. Is there something similar in 9i. What is the Oracle recommended strategy in 9i?

Thank you,
