It was a long journey of hard work and team work that now has finished, as a result you will find my book Oracle Database 12c Backup and Recovery Survival Guide that I wrote with the help of my good friend Aman Sharma.
I would also take this opportunity to recognize the great work done by many good friends involved in the technical review of the book:
- Tom Kyte
- Arup Nanda
- Robert Freeman
- Laurent Schneider
- Gokhan Atil
- Wissem El Khlifi
Thank you so much my friends for all comments, suggestions, corrections and support during this long journey!
