  • Elastic autoscaling for consistent high performance and cost savings

    Any number of concurrent users can benefit from consistent, high query performance, even at peak times. Unlike other cloud services, Oracle Autonomous Database scales while the service continues to run and can do so automatically to maintain performance. Compute resources can conversely be reduced or shut down during more quiet periods to reduce customers’ costs. All with no or minimal intervention from IT.
