Oracle Instant Application Recovery

When you want to use Instant Application Recovery, create a clone of the instance that contains the subclient that is configured for Volume Copy.

You can create a clone from an existing synthetic full backup. When you create a clone, you can specify a reservation period. The system automatically shuts down the clone database and frees up all resources when the reservation period expires.

Schedule clones to run periodically so that they have the latest production data.

You cannot clone an Oracle 12c container database or pluggable database.

You can create a clone from a backup or a backup copy. When you create a clone from the backup copy, the destination client does not need to have access to the hardware array.

The Instant Application Recover feature is only supported on the following operating systems:

  • All supported Linux versions
  • All supported AIX versions
