Oracle database backups, HA, and DR within Azure

NYOUG Webinar on May 18, 2022 presented by Tim Gorman

This presentation will focus on the choices available for database backups, high availability, and disaster resiliency for Oracle database workloads running in Azure. There are currently more than 5000 Azure customers running Oracle database workloads in Azure IaaS, and that number is growing by leaps and bounds. We discuss how to protect databases using backups and redundancy, and how to maximize database service availability. Many customers formerly used Oracle RAC on-prem, but due to Oracle’s prohibition of RAC in public clouds other than their own (for whatever reason), all have realized the fact that RAC isn’t needed, likely has never been needed, and most likely has even been an obstacle to high availability for Oracle database.
