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.

Implementing AuDG

In this section of the chapter, we will browse through some of the screenshots that will give us a sufficient idea of how to configure AuDG for your Autonomous Database and perform certain operations that we have learned about so far.

Now, let’s jump into the OCI console and start doing some of the operations. To begin with, let’s enable AuDG for your ADB instance.

Enabling AuDG

As we understood earlier, you can enable either a local or a cross-region standby Autonomous Database with an AuDG configuration, but before you can enable AuDG for your Autonomous Database instance, you must ensure that you have enough OCPU and storage resources in your tenancy across the AD and region in which you want to host the standby ADB instance.

To enable AuDG, please follow these steps:

  1. In order to enable AuDG, the primary instance’s Lifecycle State should be Available, as indicated by 1 in Figure 4.12, on the Autonomous Database Details page...
