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 connection

Autonomous database connectivity is available as either public (available to all) or private (accessible within the same virtual cloud network (VCN)). We will discuss each connection type in detail in the upcoming sections. The autonomous database connection is always encrypted, so we need a wallet file to connect with the database. Click DB Connection on the Autonomous Database Information page. An autonomous database can be created with either a Shared Infrastructure or a Dedicated Infrastructure. If it is a Shared Infrastructure, then clicking the DB Connection button will invoke another window, as shown in Figure 6.5.

The autonomous database has two wallet types – Instance Wallet and Regional Wallet. You can find them in the Wallet Types drop-down box. Instance Wallet provides keys and wallets that are required to connect to this single autonomous database. Regional Wallet provides the keys and wallets required to connect all autonomous...
