2 Oct 2017 San Francisco - At Oracle OpenWorld 2017, Oracle Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison unveiled his vision for the world's first autonomous database Cloud. Powered by Oracle Database 18c, the next generation of the industry-leading database, Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud uses ground-breaking machine learning to enable automation that eliminates human labour, human error and manual tuning, to enable unprecedented availability, high performance and security at a much lower cost.
"This is the most important thing we've done in a long, long time", stated Larry Ellison. "The automation does everything. We can guarantee availability of 99.995 percent, less than 30 minutes of planned or unplanned downtime."
The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud eliminates the human labour associated with tuning, patching, updating and maintaining the database and includes the following capabilities:
The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud handles many different workload styles, including transactions, mixed workloads, data warehouses, graph analytics, departmental applications, document stores and IoT. The first Autonomous Database Cloud offering, for data warehouse workloads, is planned to be available in calendar year 2017.
Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is a next-generation Cloud service built on the self-driving Oracle Autonomous Database technology using machine learning to deliver unprecedented performance, reliability and ease of deployment for data warehouses. As an autonomous cloud service, it eliminates error-prone manual management tasks and frees up DBA resources, which can now be applied to implementing more strategic business projects.
"Every organisation is trying to leverage the overwhelming amount of data generated in our digital economy", stated Carl Olofson, research vice president, IDC. "With a history of established leadership in the database software market segment, it is no surprise that Oracle is pioneering a next-generation data management platform. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is designed to deliver industry-leading database technology performance with unmatched flexibility, enterprise scale and simplicity. The intent is to ensure that businesses get more value from their data and modernize how data is managed."
Highlights of the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud include:
Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is powered by the next generation of the world's nr. 1 database, Oracle Database 18c. Oracle Database 18c delivers breakthrough automation capabilities, as well as greatly enhanced OLTP, analytics and consolidation technologies.
