SnapManager for Oracle uses Protection Manager to protect a database backup

SnapManager for Oracle and Protection Manager, when installed on a UNIX host and on the server respectively, give the SnapManager database administrator (DBA) the ability to configure and carry out policy-based Oracle database backups to secondary storage, and to restore, if necessary, the backed up data from secondary to primary storage.

In the following example, a DBA, who is using SnapManager, creates a profile for a local backup on primary storage and another profile for a protected backup to secondary storage. Then this DBA works with his network storage administrator, who is using the Protection Manager’s console, to configure a policy-based backup of that database from primary to secondary storage.
