Amazon Web Services (AWS) has released a fresh whitepaper focusing on running Oracle Database in AWS Cloud.
As Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers the ability to run Oracle Database in a cloud environment. As it is is similar to running the same database in the data center, database administrators and developers should see no differences between these two environments.
On the other hand, ASW platform offers a number of considerations relating to storage, compute configurations, management, monitoring and, most importantly, security, that can help administrators to get the best out of the Oracle Database implementation on AWS.
The whitepaper, titled “Best Practices for Running Oracle Database on Amazon Web Services”, focuses on best practices for achieving optimal performance, availability, and reliability, and lowering the total cost of ownership (TCO) while running Oracle Database on AWS.
The whitepaper is aimed at database administrators, enterprise architects, systems administrators, and developers who are considering to run Oracle Database on AWS.
As AWS offers two options for running Oracle Database on AWS by running the Oracle Database on the Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) for Oracle databases or by running a self-managed Oracle Database directly on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), each having certain advantages.
The whitepaper also talks about Oracle Database licensing on AWS, optimization of network configuration, instance type, and database storage.
