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.

Restoring database backups

There could be situations where unwanted DML or DDL changes happened in the database that cannot be rolled back, or the database may have been corrupted and needs to be repaired. In these case, the backup can be restored. In Autonomous Database, restoring is very simple. It is done through a single click.

The option to restore a database backup is available under the More Actions button on the Autonomous Database Information page, as shown:

Figure 5.12 – Database options

Choosing the Restore option will invoke the Restore window, as shown:

Figure 5.13 – Restore database backup

Point-in-time recovery can be done either at the preferred timestamp in UTC or any specific backup, as shown:

Alternatively, you can select a backup from the list:
