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.
Table of Contents (13 chapters)
Part 1 – Understanding Autonomous Database in OCI
Part 2 – Migration and High Availability with Autonomous Database
Part 3 – Security and Compliance with Autonomous Database


  1. Data Pump, SQL *Loader, SQL Developer, Oracle GoldenGate, Oracle Data Integrator, and other ETL tools.
  2. Using logical online migration, which automates the usage of Data Pump combined with Oracle GoldenGate.
  3. An OCI Object Store bucket.
  5. No, in Autonomous Database, we cannot create new tablespaces. It is restricted; we can only remap tablespaces during import. There are two tablespaces available, one for DATA and another for RECO. Besides that, in the ZDM migration method, we just have to provide the inputs in the response file, where we can also use remap_tablespace and let the ZDM tool take care of the import operation.
