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.

Networking, IAM, and security for shared and dedicated deployments

This section discusses important steps you need to perform, such as networking, IAM, and security through policies and permission of resources. They are applicable to any ADBs, such as shared or dedicated deployments you plan to do in OCI. Understanding these topics is critical because IAM and networking could be complex. Consider a scenario of identity federation where you need to integrate with another service provider (Microsoft Azure AD, Okta, etc.) for identity-related tasks. The same is true for networking. Imagine your databases need to be accessed only from within your cloud tenancy or from within a private subnet.

Prerequisites – IAM considerations

OCI provides IAM integration as a shared security service across all resources deployed in a tenancy. You can consider it as a common framework that helps integrate OCI IAM for resource authentication and authorization needs applicable to all the integration...
