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.

Throughout this chapter, we covered a very key topic of Autonomous Database – that is, migration to Autonomous Database if we need to leverage the rich features available within the service. We discussed some of the regular considerations when migrating a database in general, and what precautions or considerations need to be made for a successful migration. Briefly, we talked about the different migration approaches that are possible while migrating to Autonomous Database and focused on one of the recommended automated processes for migration, zdm. We split the migration into multiple parts; first, we discussed the prerequisites, followed by a detailed discussion of each of the different steps involved in this utility, and finally, we simplified the entire process by clubbing them together as one invocation, using a response file that runs the steps in sequence. A concluding part of the step was to perform a sanity check. This method allowed us to initiate multiple migrations...
