Veeam Backup Free Edition integrates with Veeam Explorer for Oracle — a tool that lets you browse Oracle databases in VMs located on storage snapshots and restore Oracle databases.
Before you start working with Veeam Explorer for Oracle, you need to extract an Oracle database from the storage snapshot. You can do it in two ways:
- You can use the Oracle Database Restore wizard. In this case, Veeam Backup Free Edition will automatically extract an Oracle database from the storage snapshot and open it in Veeam Explorer for Oracle. For more information, see Using the Oracle Database Restore Wizard.
- You can restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized Oracle server, manually locate an Oracle database and open it in Veeam Explorer for Oracle. For more information, see Opening Oracle Database Manually.
