Real-time Data Replication between Oracle Autonomous Databases using Oracle GoldenGate

Introduction Oracle GoldenGate is a software product that allows you to replicate, filter, and transform data from one database to another in real-time. It can be used to migrate databases with (near) zero downtime. As logical replication, source and target databases could be of different versions, platforms, and character sets. Even many non-Oracle databases are supported.…

Connect to Oracle (Autonomous) Database using Secure External Password Store (SEPS)

Scripts, batch jobs, and application code need to provide a database username and password to connect to the database. Using wallets risk is reduced because such passwords are no longer exposed in plain text, and password management policies are more easily enforced without changing application code whenever user names or passwords change. Connect using the connect…

Automate Data Pump Export in Autonomous Database for Archiving incl. Cross-region Copy

Oracle Autonomous Database eliminates the human labor associated with database tuning, security, backups, patching, upgrade, and other routine management tasks traditionally had to be performed manually. Other tasks like restore and recovery, migration, cloning, and moving data are done on demand (manually), but differently and more conveniently than on-premise. Data Pump is a very useful utility to extract…

Private Access to Autonomous Database using Transit Routing (across regions)

One of the frequently asked questions about Autonomous Database is “how can I access the database without having the traffic traversing the internet?” In case you are keeping the Application on-prem, then the answer is using Transit Routing while connecting to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) using VPN or FastConnect from the on-premises network. The architecture looks as simple as…
