Oracle runs on Autonomous Database

Autonomous Database powers Oracle’s own cloud services and internal applications—up to hundreds of terabytes and thousands of databases—with no dedicated administration resources required.

Oracle powers its business with Autonomous Database

More than 27,000 customer instances

More than 6,000 customer instances

"Much like how Cloud EPM provides greater value to our customers by automating the operation, patching, and maintenance of the application, Autonomous Database provides us the same value so we can spend more time improving our service for our customers."

"Using Autonomous Database enables us to manage over 1,000 databases across all OCI regions with no dedicated administrative head count. OCI Ops Insights Cloud Service has also been able to achieve per tenant level predictable performance and immensely improved data security by isolating each tenant’s data to dedicated Autonomous Data Warehouse instances. Managing such a large number of databases across regions would have been impossible without Autonomous Database technology."

—Girish Kumar Balachandran, Senior Director of Software Development, Oracle

"We rely on Oracle Autonomous Database to run OS Management Service and are able to operate about 5,000 databases with no DBAs. I would not want to go back to any other database. With Autonomous Database, our team can do more high value work because we don’t have to spend time tuning, optimizing, backing up, patching, or updating databases."

"Today we deploy over 13,500 databases managing over 655 terabytes of data, and we don’t need a single dedicated database administrator. I sleep better at night knowing I don’t have to worry about the database my service depends on."

—Yogesh Kumar, Senior Director of Software Development, Oracle
