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.

Well, I hope you have had a great start to your ADB journey toward making a decision to take your workload to OCI ADB. You learned about deciding which kind of ADB is appropriate for your use case. We looked at the differences between shared versus dedicated infrastructure. We explored use cases for both kinds of deployments. Getting a TCO and ROI calculation for business is important and we have seen how you can quickly create them for your business case. With the evolution of Autonomous Databases, IT leaders must think of modernizing enterprise computing by transitioning it to a cloud-based model to take advantage of lower costs.

ADB combines the flexibility of the cloud with the power of ML to deliver data management as a service. I hope by now that you have an understanding of what ADB is, its technical building blocks, the reasons why you should consider ADB, use cases for ADB based on deployment types, business benefits, and creating BOMs and the TCO/ROI for your business justification.

In the next chapter, we will cover various deployment choices in detail such as provisioning, IAM and networking requirements, and connectivity.
