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.

ADB Disaster Protection with Autonomous Data Guard

From our understanding of the chapters so far, Autonomous Database definitely is a database deployment of choice in the cloud. In this chapter, we explore more how it provides an additional level of database protection from any kind of disaster. We will also learn how to configure our Autonomous Database with a Disaster Recovery (DR) solution to ensure business continuity and understand the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) concepts in the context of Autonomous Database. We’ll also learn about the cloud tool available for automating most of the manual steps that you would otherwise do in a traditional non-cloud or IaaS-based deployment.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Overview and associated terminologies
  • AuDG
  • Status and operations in AuDG

We will conclude this chapter by making a short summary of what we have learned in this chapter, followed by some...
