Customize Backup Retention Period of DB System
Earlier when we configured Automatic Incremental Backups for DB System in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure using Cloud Console, the backup retention period of the database was 30 days by default and you couldn’t customize it.
With the recent enhancements in the DB System in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, when you create DB System either a Virtual Machine or a Bare Metal based DB System and configure automatic Automatic Incremental Backups for DB System, you can customize backup retention period and now it can be extended up to 60 days. You can set the backup retention period as 15 days, 30 days, 45 days, or 60 days & the system automatically deletes your incremental backups at the end of your chosen retention period.
This has been covered in much detail in Module 7: Backup/Restore DB System of our DBA To Cloud DBA Training
