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.

Migration to Autonomous Database

With some understanding gained about what exactly an autonomous database service offering is in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, as discussed in Chapter 1, Introduction to Oracle's Autonomous Databases, , we will now set the stage in this chapter to enable you to simplify your migration approach to an autonomous database service. Throughout this chapter, we will discuss at a high level what options are available for you to migrate to an autonomous database, understand the restrictions currently existing in the service, and then deep dive into one of the simplified tools available that can automate your migration to an autonomous database service. By the end of this chapter, you will have obtained a detailed understanding of how this automation works, enabling you to put this into practice when migrating one or more databases to an autonomous database, irrespective of the type Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW)/Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) database...
