Oracle’s Autonomous Database has been gaining momentum as the world’s simplest way to develop and deploy data driven applications in the cloud. Now the extreme availability feature, Autonomous Data Guard (AuDG) previously available for Shared Infrastructure deployment, is also available on Dedicated Infrastructure deployments.
Autonomous Database on Dedicated Infrastructure provides the entire technology stack (storage, network, compute) to a single tenant and adds operational customization, policy controls that can influence how the autonomous software layer performs its tasks.
The addition of Autonomous Data Guard adds an ability to improve the service uptime as necessary for more business critical or mission critical database deployments, protecting against failure scenarios that include among other things site level outages. Autonomous Data Guard on Dedicated Infrastructure adds functionality commonly requested by customers - delivering high availability and disaster recovery in an architecture similar to that found in the most critical on-premises Oracle deployments.
Autonomous Data Guard on Dedicated Infrastructure is a manifestation of Oracle’s Maximum Availability Architecture (MAA), incorporating autonomous operation of high availability best practices found in mission critical deployments from Oracle’s extensive set of enterprise customers. Autonomous Data Guard includes key technologies: Real Application Clusters (RAC), Active Data Guard (ADG), and Transparent Application Continuity (TAC).
In the Autonomous Database on Dedicated Infrastructure, the above capabilities are autonomously operated to provide a zero downtime application experience for any kind of failure event. Autonomous Data Guard on Dedicated Infrastructure includes the following:
Summary:Oracle Autonomous Database on Dedicated Infrastructure now supports Autonomous Data Guard, an autonomous operational implementation of Oracle’s Maximum Availability Architecture technology stack and delivers a mission critical database capability to everyone, available in minutes, without any need for deep administrative expertise in the underlying Exadata and Oracle Database technology stacks. For detailed information on the service and the Autonomous Data Guard, see the User Documentation for complete details.
