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.

Managing Autonomous Databases

In earlier chapters, we discussed how autonomous databases are provisioned and the available options, the migration strategies, the disaster recovery concepts, and the backup/recovery options. In this chapter, we are going to explore the manageability of autonomous databases.

In general, a database is effective when it is managed well. This management topic covers how to operate and manage an autonomous database whether it is an Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) database, an Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADB), an APEX database (built for Oracle APEX application development), or a JSON (an autonomous database for JSON-centric applications) database.

This chapter will explore all the management options and functionalities of autonomous databases. We will discuss which tasks are automated and which management tasks need to be managed by us. At the end of this chapter, we will have a better understanding of how to effectively manage an autonomous...
