Data Guard - primary on-premise / standby at RDS

0

Hello. At this moment, i have an Oracle Database on-premisse (licensed; Enterprise Edition) and i´m planning a Disaster Recovery strategy on cloud using Data Guard. In this scenario, i´m gonna keep the primay instance on-premise and the standby instance on AWS Cloud.

Considerations:

1- Using EC2 as my standby - I´m gonna have to license standby vCPUs on AWS (BYOL, Enterprise Edition) , according to Oracle policies (https://www.oracle.com/assets/cloud-licensing-070579.pdf). After this, i install Linux and Oracle and configure Data Guard between the two instances, right?

2- Using RDS as my standby- Is it possible ?? I mean, i know i´m gonna have to license my RDS instance as well (BYOL, Enterprise Edidion), but how does this work? AWS team would help me configuring the standby/RDS?

That is the correct path. You may want consider RDS Custom for Oracle where you can migrate database using Data Guard - https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/database/physical-migration-of-oracle-databases-to-amazon-rds-custom-using-data-guard/

2- Using RDS as my standby- Is it possible ?? I mean, i know i´m gonna have to license my RDS instance as well (BYOL, Enterprise Edidion), but how does this work? AWS team would help me configuring the standby/RDS?

It is possible to run standby database in RDS custom for Oracle - please see the above blog. Please reach out to your AWS account team to help you with your request.
