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.

Backup and Restore with Autonomous Database in OCI

Backup is a crucial activity when we deal with any database. It derives the mechanism of how to back up the data either with the same or a different optimized format. If data loss happens due to a disaster or human mistake, then the data can be recovered only through a backup. We have many backup methods for Oracle databases, such as Data Pump, Recovery Manager (RMAN), and so on. In this chapter, we are going to discuss backup strategies in Autonomous Database.

In general, Oracle database backup can be taken either as full database backup having user data along with its database metadata (for example, RMAN backup), or we can extract only the user data (for example, Data Pump) and create a dump file. You may wonder how the backup can be taken for an autonomous database. We’ll cover that in detail in this chapter.

We will be covering the following topics:

  • Understanding backup types
  • Backup through the OCI portal...
