Goal

By copying files directly across network, we can not just eliminate several steps, but also, reduce time by several factors due to reduced I/O calls:

Legacy Method

Above method requires 3 I/O calls.

Copying files directly across network reduces to Single I/O & Network call to achieve same goal.

 

In 12c, this is a new native feature and much easier and efficient. Refer 12c Documentation :

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E16655_01/backup.121/e17630/rcmadvre.htm#BRADV680 

 

For versions prior to 11g (e..g 10gR2), refer below Article:
