Summary

Do the normal RMAN Commands apply if backup moved to Archive Storage

Content

I'm implementing Oracle Database Cloud Backup Module on a compute instance. 

I have written my scripts and everything is hunky dory. 

I want to keep the weekly backups for 12 weeks and the monthly backups for 3 years  (don't ask!)  I also have daily backups. 

If this were on premise I would use a KEEP UNTIL for the weekly/monthly backups. 
I would be doing crosscheck and delete obsolete/expired to maintain the backups. 

If I'm doing similar in Cloud and I have enableArchiving in the Oracle Database Cloud Backup Module so my Object Storage backups get moved to the Archive Storage , do the same rules apply ?  will my KEEP UNTIL: sysdate +93 backups actually get deleted after 93 days even if they are not longer in object storage. 

Howdy, Stranger!
