Key cloud services help you protect your data and applications.
Exadata: Oracle Exadata Database Service allows you to leverage the power and performance of Exadata within Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and easily migrate workloads with full compatibility across deployments. Exadata Database Service is highly available and simplifies operational management with online resource scaling, zero downtime maintenance, and one-click provisioning of Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and Oracle Active Data Guard using built-in cloud automation.
Real Application Clusters: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure offers 2-node RAC database systems on virtual machine compute instances, providing built-in high-availability capabilities to address your availability requirements. For more demanding workloads, Oracle Autonomous Database—Dedicated and Exadata Database Service enables massive scale-out with linear performance increases, allowing you to scale from 3 to 32 RAC nodes in a single service.
Data Guard: Oracle Data Guard and Active Data Guard are highly efficient standby databases providing disaster recovery for Oracle databases to meet near or zero data loss requirements. Deploy one or more synchronized replicas of a production database in physically separate locations across cloud availability domains and/or regions or as a disaster recovery solution for on-premises deployments. Increase your return on investment by using your Active Data Guard standby for reporting as well as disaster recovery.
Full Stack Disaster Recovery: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Full Stack Disaster Recovery Service manages the transition of infrastructure, platforms, and applications between OCI regions from anywhere around the globe with a single click. Customers can deploy DR environments without redesigning or redeploying existing infrastructure, databases, or applications while eliminating the need for specialized management or conversion servers.
Oracle Database Zero Data Loss Autonomous Recovery Service: Improve business resiliency against data loss and ransomware attacks with continuous data protection and the fast, predictable recovery of Oracle databases running on OCI. Real-time database transaction protection, policy-based backup lifecycle management, fully encrypted backups with database-aware recovery validation, and monitoring deliver unique recovery capabilities when running Oracle databases on OCI.
Oracle Recovery Manager: Oracle Recovery Manager provides a comprehensive foundation for efficiently backing up, recovering, and migrating an Oracle Database. It provides a common interface for tasks, optimizes performance and space consumption while taking care of underlying database procedures, offers management features such as retention policy and backup history, and integrates with a range of tools.
Regions: Oracle Cloud is available globally from over 35 cloud regions, and Oracle is rapidly building more. Our goal is to offer proximity, meet data sovereignty requirements, and provide in-country disaster recovery capabilities in every country. Oracle’s unique dual-region cloud strategy enables customers to deploy resilient applications in multiple geographically separated locations—without having sensitive data leave the country.
Fault Domains: OCI’s physical and virtual network design maximizes performance and security. Oracle’s cloud regions each contain at least three fault domains, which are groupings of hardware that form logical data centers for high availability and resilience to hardware and network failures.
Availability Domains: A region is composed of one or more availability domains connected to each other by a low latency, high bandwidth network. Availability domains are isolated from each other, fault tolerant, and unlikely to fail simultaneously.
IPSec VPN: Your data centers can connect to cloud networks over an IPSec VPN. The cloud network has a dynamic routing gateway (DRG) that has multiple VPN endpoints so that each IPSec VPN connection consists of multiple redundant IPSec tunnels that use static routes to route traffic.
FastConnect: Your data center can either connect directly to OCI routers in provider points-of-presence (POPs) or use one of Oracle’s many partners to connect from POPs around the world to their OCI networking resources. Oracle provides features that allow you to build fault-tolerant connections, including multiple POPs per region and multiple FastConnect routers per POP.
Load Balancing: A load balancer improves resource utilization, facilitates scaling, and helps ensure high availability. You can configure multiple load balancing policies and application-specific health checks to ensure that the load balancer directs traffic only to healthy instances.
Object Storage: With OCI Object Storage, stored objects are automatically replicated across fault domains or across availability domains. Customers can combine replication with lifecycle management policies to automatically populate, archive, and delete objects.
Block Storage: Use OCI Block Volume policy-based backups to perform automatic, scheduled backups and retain them based on a backup policy. Consistently backing up your data allows you to adhere to your data compliance and regulatory requirements.
File Storage: OCI File Storage uses the industry-standard Network File System (NFS) file access protocol and can be accessed concurrently by thousands of Compute instances. File Storage can provide high-performance and resilient data protection for your applications. Within an availability domain, File Storage uses synchronous replication and high availability failover to keep your data safe and available.
