This topic describes the database engine versions and database objects that are supported by Database Backup, and the fine granularity of backup and restoration in Database Backup. This topic also provides information of features and other items that are supported by each module of Database Backup.
- Compression: Database Backup reduces storage costs by using compression, compact backup, and incremental backup.
- Encryption: Database Backup uses SSL and AES-256 encryption to protect security in the transmission and storage of backup data.
- Throttling: Database Backup throttles the number of backup threads to reduce the impact on the performance of source databases.
- Lifecycle management: Database Backup provides complete lifecycle management and globally controls lifecycle rules to dump, clear, copy, and distribute automatic backup data.
