Oracle Autonomous Database in Enterprise Architecture

By: Bal Mukund Sharma, Krishnakumar KM, Rashmi Panda

Overview of this book

Oracle Autonomous Database (ADB) is built on the world’s fastest Oracle Database Platform, Exadata, and is delivered on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), customer data center (ExaCC), and Oracle Dedicated Region Cloud. This book is a fast-paced, hands-on introduction to the most important aspects of OCI Autonomous Databases. You'll get to grips with concepts needed for designing disaster recovery using standby database deployment for Autonomous Databases. As you progress, you'll understand how you can take advantage of automatic backup and restore. The concluding chapters will cover topics such as the security aspects of databases to help you learn about managing Autonomous Databases, along with exploring the features of Autonomous Database security such as Data Safe and customer-managed keys for Vaults. By the end of this Oracle book, you’ll be able to build and deploy an Autonomous Database in OCI, migrate databases to ADB, comfortably set up additional high-availability features such as Autonomous Data Guard, and understand end-to-end operations with ADBs.

  1. In an autonomous database, can we manage our own encryption keys?

Yes, Autonomous Database allows customer-managed encryption keys. For this, the user needs to create an OCI vault and keys. These have to be rotated by the user at regular intervals.

  1. Is Data Redaction available with Oracle Autonomous Database?

Yes, Data Redaction and Data Vault are available with Autonomous Database. All standard database security features are also available with Autonomous Database.

  1. I am planning to migrate from an on-premises database to Autonomous Database (the ATP variant). Can Data Safe analyze my on-premises database and recommend safety measures before migrating the database?

Yes. Data Safe can analyze on-premises databases. The database will come under the external database. The database should be reachable by OCI.

  1. I would like to migrate data to Autonomous Database using the Data Pump method. Since Autonomous Database doesn’t provide...
