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.

With Oracle Autonomous Database, you have the option to create a mirror copy of your primary Autonomous Database either locally or cross-region using AuDG. This is fully automated, wherein you just have to enable the option against your Autonomous Database instance and as the name sounds, under the hood, a standby copy of your primary Autonomous Database is automatically created with the needed settings for failover or switchover with zero manual intervention. This feature is available with Autonomous Database – for Shared, Dedicated, and Exadata C@C deployment options. Throughout this chapter, we will discuss this feature and gain more insight into its functionality and usage.

This chapter is dedicated to studying the feature functionality more from an Autonomous Database Shared infrastructure service perspective. The AuDG configuration for Dedicated or ExaC@C is slightly different and is not covered as part of this chapter, but if there is a need, you must refer to...
