We are getting a new server and we need to transfer a 15g database to the new one.  What would be the fastest way to do this....using the copy database wizard or doing a backup and restore?  Also can this be done during production or will it have to be after hours?

Thanks

You can do backup and restore..

Are you moving production database to another server?

If so, then its always better to do it off  hours. As usual don't forget to take the backup first.
