After you use Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) to back up an Oracle database to a backup vault, you can restore the Oracle database as needed. You can restore the database to the original Oracle instance, another Oracle instance that uses the same backup vault, or an Oracle instance in another region.

Prerequisites

The Oracle database is backed up. For more information, see Back up an Oracle database.
