Why Oracle Database?

AI for Data

  • Bring AI to your data with built-in AI Vector Search and in-database machine learning; eliminate the complexity and cost of integrating and managing multiple databases—and trying to maintain data consistency.
  • Benefit from AI at-scale without sacrificing security, availability, and performance.
  • Use the latest technologies such as retrieval augmented generation (RAG) and enterprise-class LLMs with your own business data for more contextual and relevant results.

Discover AI Vector Search

Dev for Data

  • Don't let limited data types or programming languages hold you back from innovation; simplify AppDev with support for all modern data types, workloads, and development styles—all within one converged database.
  • Get the scalability of relational frameworks with the simplicity of document models using JSON relational duality.
  • Use the built-in APEX platform for faster GenAI-powered, low-code development. Simplify the development and deployment of microservices with containerized, pluggable databases.

Discover JSON Relational Duality

Mission Critical for Data

  • Improve application response times while reducing the load on database servers with True Cache; no need to rewrite your apps.
  • Protect databases against SQL injection attacks — including zero-day attacks —with SQL Firewall. Manage data across multiple regions while meeting data residency regulations using Globally Distributed Database with RAFT replication.
  • Use the same technology whether your data lives on-premises or in Oracle Cloud.
