Data Publishing

Publishing an Oracle database allows you to temporarily attach the databases to the target Oracle server without launching restore. Publishing typically occurs faster than using standard restore features and could be convenient when, for example, your time to perform disaster-recovery operations is limited.

After you have launched a publishing operation to an Oracle server, you can quickly republish the latest or point-in-time state of the database to the same server.

During publishing, Veeam Explorer for Oracle takes the following actions:

  1. Mounts VM disks from the backup file to the target Oracle server.

Mounting is done to the C:\VeeamFLR directory for Windows-based servers and the /tmp directory for Linux-based servers.

  1. Retrieves required database files.
  2. Attaches associated databases directly to the target Oracle server so that you can perform required operations using Oracle tools.

Before publishing data, read the Considerations and Limitations section.
