Recently I have discovered that now you can provision a standby Autonomous Database on shared Exadata infrastructure. This peer database can be then used for data protection and disaster recovery. The technology behind is well known. It is Data Guard, here called Autonomous Data Guard. Sounds great? There is only one drawback. Your primary ATP should be in version 19c minimum. If you have an older 18c… a database upgrade will be needed first. After a few experiments with my Terraform repo for ATP deployment, I have added a new lesson to my mini-course. How you will find it tasty 🙂
