Cross-region DataGuard in OCI coded with Terraform

In one of the latest lessons of my tutorial I have shown how to setup DataGuard locally within the same region. I guess this is some sort of database protection, but in case of the whole region failure it will not help at all. So it is worth to consider the cross-region solution for database security. In this additional lesson I am trying to showcase how to deploy remote DataGuard Association with the usage of Terraform code.

The database archivelogs will be send directly via DRGs and OCI backbone. I hope you will find this dish tasty and it will be somehow useful for your work with the cloud solutions. Let me know if you have any kind of feedback. 🙂

Bon Appetit,

How to use Terraform and OCI – lesson 10

I have returned from short vacations with the strong belief I should publish new stuff. And here it is – new lesson 10 about Transit Routing VCN. About Transit VCN I have written my first post more than year ago. By the way – details about Transit Routing VCN can be found in OCI docs here. Now it is good to create some adjustment to my previous blog post and somehow combine this knowledge with the Terraform +OCI course which has been published as a playlist on our YT channel. Lesson 10 will enhance the previous two lessons (about remote and local peering). We will add route tables (1) on the DRG attachment level and (2) on Hub VCN level for both HUBLPGs and (3) at requestor site for traffic going back to acceptor site. It seems to be very complex, but I guess you will catch the concept quickly. I hope this sophisticated dish will be tasty as the previous one.

Bon Appetit,

How to use Terraform and OCI – lesson 9

I hope you have noticed that huge news at OCI Release Notes. In February 2020 OCI global footprint has grown significantly with three new regions (Amsterdam in the Netherlands, Jeddah in Saudi Arabia and Melbourne in Australia). I am located in Europe so immediately I have requested the subscription of Amsterdam DC. So now in my tenancy, I have Frankfurt and Amsterdam regions ready to be utilized. Given this fact, it was obvious for me, I can try to set up some extension to my previous lesson, lesson 8. I could convert local VCN peering in the same region into a remote VCN peering configuration. In this new setup, my BackendServer, with all necessary cloud infrastructure, would be deployed in Amsterdam. And I have done it. So now we have brand new lesson 9 for which code is available here. There is also video, ready for you, ready to be watched! 🙂 As always I am asking kindly for subscribing to our YouTube channel. Believe me, I am planning to record more and more stuff and publish it here in a form of blog post and video blog on YT 🙂

Bon Appetit,

Martin, The Cook.
