One of the customers was struggling to delete the backup data from the Oracle Cloud to avoid the charges. Oracle support requested to use the CloudBerry tools for easy management. Below is the excerpt from the CloudBerry website :

"With CloudBerry Backup you can use Oracle Storage Cloud Service as a cost-effective, remote backup solution for your enterprise data and applications. By backing up your data and applications to Oracle Storage Cloud Service, you can avoid large capital and operating expenditures in acquiring and maintaining storage hardware.
