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.

  1. When the primary database in the primary region becomes unresponsive, you can perform a failover from the cross-region standby from the primary directly from the console. State true or false.
  2. With an AuDG configuration with both a local and remote standby, when you switch over from the primary to a remote standby, an automated backup will be initiated in the remote region database with the primary role. State true or false.
  3. What are the RTO and RPO of a local standby during automatic failover?
  4. If you have enabled AuDG with a cross-region standby and you enable auto scaling in the primary region’s primary database, then you have to manually enable auto scaling in the other region’s remote standby database. State true or false.
  5. You can mask sensitive data in the cross-region remote standby. State true or false.
