Oracle Cloud Infrastructure for disaster recovery and non-production instances
Undoubtedly, you're looking for ways to reduce capital expenses while still doing everything you can to keep your data secure. If so, consider the Rackspace public cloud offerings and Oracle® Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) as the perfect fit to host your Oracle workload.
You might still be hesitant to rely 100% on the public cloud, but you can migrate your disaster recovery (DR) and non-production workload to OCI easily. This migration reduces on-premises capital costs. Choose from various OCI plans like Pay As You Go or Monthly Flex where you can accomplish the following tasks:
- Control spending.
- Shut down non-production environments after hours.
- Use a DR instance in OCI to refresh or clone non-production instances for faster performance.
OCI offers the following benefits:
Keep Oracle E-Business Suite environment production on-premises.
Set up your OCI environment, including a virtual cloud network (VCN), subnet, route tables, and various gateways.
Create IP Security (IPSec) connections or FastConnect to connect with your on-premises network by using your customer-premises equipment.
Create compute instances and use Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) in OCI.
Backups and cloning
adprecloneon database and application tiers on-premises.
Take Recovery Manager (RMAN) backups of your database tier and use
tarto save application tier backups.
Provision file storage on a compute instance and share that storage with on-premises resources.
Copy on-premises backups to file storage visible to the OCI environment.
Extract the OCI application tier and use the Linux® remote sync (
rsynch) utility to keep it synchronized.
Extract the database tier and set up an Oracle Home Target.
Use RMAN to restore or recover backed-up databases and place the database in recovery mode.
Send changes from on-premises production instances to the OCI DR site.
Monitoring and testing
Enable force logging on on-premises production environments.
Set up and monitor changes applied to the OCI DR.
Schedule and perform annual DR tests.
Use the OCI DR site to perform routine clones of non-production environments.
