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.

Autonomous database actions

Let’s start by exploring all the options on the autonomous database Overview page. Log in to the OCI portal using your own credentials, then click the Oracle Database option, and then Autonomous Database, as shown in Figure 6.1. Choose either Autonomous Transaction Processing, Autonomous Data Warehouse, or Autonomous JSON Database.

The autonomous database details are shown in Figure 6.2. This details page shows information such as Database Name, OCPU Count, and Storage, and it also has options to manage the database, starting with Start or Stop (depending on the database’s current status), and options for managing the database. We will be exploring each option in detail in this chapter.
