Database Backup (DBS) provides features such as full backup, incremental backup, and data restoration. This topic describes the main procedure involved in the backup and restoration of a database.


In most cases, you must perform the following operations to back up and restore a database by using DBS:

  1. Purchase a backup schedule.
    You must purchase a backup schedule for the database that you want to back up. For more information, see Purchase a backup schedule.
  2. Configure the backup schedule.
    After you configure the backup schedule, DBS performs backup operations in an automated manner based on your configurations. For more information, see Configure a backup schedule.
  3. Restore the database.
    After a backup is created, you can restore the database. For more information, see Restore a database.
    Note DBS provides a sandbox solution that is developed based on copy data management (CDM). You can create independent DBS sandbox instances with ease to make your backup data available in a short period of time. For more information, see Quick start.
