Magic Pixie Dust Recovery Area…

This morning, as I was scanning through the 11gR2 version of the Backup and Recovery User Guide and I saw the term Fast Recovery Area. My first thought was, “Isn’t that meant to be Flash Recovery Area?”. This was quickly followed by that flash (excuse the pun) of embarrassment when you think maybe it changed ages ago and you are the only person in the world that didn’t notice… ๐Ÿ™‚

Well it seems in 11gR1 it was still called the Flash Recovery Area, but 11gR2 has replaced the word Flash with Fast. I guess the name change makes sense as the word Flash may fool people into thinking it’s just for Flashback stuff.

I’m sure in 12g it will be called the Magic Pixie Dust Recovery Area…

Cheers
