What are the different types of backup for an ORACLE database? What type of backup you would recommand for Amazon for example? Also, what are the architectural diagrams facts and figures? I am so unfamiliar with this topic, and hope that i can receive some helpful info from the ORACLE experts out there. Your help is appreciated. :-)

basically there are 2 types of backups(hot backup and cold backup). Cold backup can be done only when database is shutdown.copying operating system files(physical structure) into backup location when database shutdown is called cold backup.This method is ideal if you have enough downtime of database.

Amazon case is different. it should be available 24X7. so hot backup with archive logs is ideal for that type of database.you can take this backup without shutting down database.

Can you recommend an off the shelf software to backup Oracle files. I find that ARCSERV and VERITAS are very expensive.
