Oracle provides the Database Upgrade Assistant (DBUA) to automate the upgrade process and makes appropriate recommendations for configuration options such as tablespaces and redo logs. The DBUA also provides support for Real Application Clusters (RAC) and Automatic Storage Management (ASM).

We definitely promote using RMAN for backups of your Oracle database. With RMAN you are able to recover up to the last moment before failure (if you have archive log mode enabled). This is as opposed to a facility like export dumps where you are only able to recover to the point when the export was made (or at some point in time before).
With RMAN you can also restore individual files and tablespaces. With export dumps you can restore individual tables but the transactional integrity is not guaranteed if you restore individual objects.
