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 considerations

Oracle Autonomous Database has been designed to be fast, easy, and secure, with the objective of overcoming most of the management overheads usually associated with any database. We learned about these capabilities in Chapter 1, Introduction to Oracle's Autonomous Databases. Now, the question is, can your application database be hosted on an autonomous database so that you can take advantage of autonomous capabilities? Well, the answer is yes in most cases. However, there is also a word of caution. Autonomous Database, although it is an Oracle database, does have certain restrictions compared to a usual enterprise Oracle database, and it is worth reviewing the limitations once by clicking on the following link and reviewing the details to see what features are not supported:
