Oracle Data Pump is a set of command line utilities and PL/SQL packages for moving data and metadata between Oracle databases.

Oracle Data Pump is a set of command line utilities based around DBMS_DATAPUMP and DBMS_METADATA packages (can be used separately) allowing efficient export and import of data and metadata between Oracle databases.

Data Pump uses dump files in proprietary format to store exported data and metadata, and it uses dump files or database links to read data into the database.
