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.

Autonomous Database Deployment Options in OCI

In the previous chapter, you learned how to decide which autonomous database (ADB) is best suited for your workload. Now it’s time to deploy your ADB in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Before moving on to various deployment options for ADB, I’ll introduce you to Oracle’s Always Free Tier for OCI so that you can have a better understanding of the environment and visualize things in a better way. As we progress, you will learn about various deployment options available to users, such as serverless architecture (shared), the dedicated offering on ExaCS, and ExaCC platforms in OCI. More importantly, understanding the requirements of the network architecture such as the access checklist, private endpoints, VCN, subnetwork considerations, and considering IAM’s work separation policies will ensure that your deployment is well architected, keeping in mind best practices and security.

In this chapter, we will cover...
