Backing up your Oracle Cloud Database to Recovery Service offers the advantage of enhanced data protection and simplified backup management.
You must use the Oracle-managed backups feature, also called automatic backups, to protect a database using Recovery Service. Use the console to configure automatic backups and set Autonomous Recovery Service as the backup destination. You can then access and monitor the protected databases and backups using the console.
When you create a database, such as an Exadata Cloud Infrastructure instance, you can enable automatic backups and set Autonomous Recovery Service as the backup destination. You can also enable automatic backups to Recovery Service after the database is created.
