Cross-account Amazon RDS for Oracle migration using Amazon RDS snapshots and AWS DMS for minimal downtime
In scenarios such as consolidating or merging multiple departments with separate AWS accounts into a single AWS account, splitting a single account or divisions into multiple AWS accounts for better management, or duplicating an AWS account across Regions, you often need to migrate the database from one AWS account to another with minimal downtime and […]
Migrate a cross-account TDE-enabled Amazon RDS for Oracle DB instance with reduced downtime using AWS DMS
Migrating a Transparent Data Encryption (TDE)-enabled Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle database instance from one AWS account to another is a common use case in scenarios when you acquire, sell, or merge operations, or if you’re reorganizing your AWS accounts and organizational structure. TDE is a permanent and persistent option in RDS […]
In this post, we show you how you can use the RMAN XTTS functionality to migrate from an Oracle database hosted on Amazon Elastic Compute CLoud (Amazon EC2) to Amazon RDS for Oracle. Combined with Amazon Elastic File System (Amazon EFS) integration, XTTS can help reduce the complexity of your migration strategy, reduce the number and copies of data and backups required (as well as associated storage space consumption), and reduce the application downtime associated with completing the migration of your data.
This is a two-part series. In this post, we explain three archival solutions that allow you to archive Oracle data into Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). In Part 2 of this series, we explain three archival solutions using native Oracle products and utilities. All of these options allow you to join current Oracle data with archived data.
This post is a continuation of Archival solutions for Oracle database workloads in AWS: Part 1. Part 1 explains three archival solutions that allow you to archive Oracle data into Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). In this post, we explain three archival solutions using native Oracle products and utilities.
In this post, we discuss some recommended solutions and practices you should adopt in order to protect your databases hosted on Amazon RDS for Oracle from database block corruption.
In the realm of AWS Cloud adoption, migration stands out as a pivotal aspect, demanding a comprehensive understanding of diverse tools, techniques, and best practices. This understanding becomes particularly essential when it comes to the smooth and uninterrupted migration of large databases, aiming to minimize both downtime and failures. Undertaking large database migration is an […]
Improve performance of real-time analytics and mixed workloads using the Database In-Memory option on Amazon RDS for Oracle
In this post, I demonstrate how to improve the performance of real-time analytics and mixed workloads without impacting Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) using the Oracle Database In-Memory option for workloads running on Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle. The demand for real-time analytics requires analytic queries to be run in real time concurrently […]
In Part 1 of this series, we discussed implementing Oracle Transparent Database Encryption (TDE) in Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) Custom for Oracle with the local auto-login option in a database with the multi-tenant option disabled. In this post, we focus on outlining the implementation steps of TDE in an Oracle database with the […]
In this first post of this two part series, we show you the options available to set up security using Transparent Data Encryption (TDE) to protect data at rest for an Oracle non-multi-tenant database running in Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) Custom for Oracle. The second post will focus on the TDE implementation for […]
