What is Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud?

Building on the next generation of the industry-leading Oracle Database 18c, Oracle introduces the world’s first autonomous database cloud. Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud eliminates complexity, human error, and manual management, helping to ensure higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency at the lowest cost.

How It Works


Eliminate manual database management

Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is the world’s first autonomous data management in the cloud to deliver automated patching, upgrades, and tuning—including performing all routine database maintenance tasks while the system is running—without human intervention. This new autonomous database cloud is self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing, which helps to eliminate manual database management and human errors.


Automatic in depth data protection at all levels

Automatically encrypts all data. Provides automatic security updates with no downtime, along with protection from both external attacks and malicious internal users.


Always-on availability for application and database

The self-recovering capability automatically detects and applies corrective actions to ensure nonstop access to your data. Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud will automatically implement Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and cross-region Oracle Active Data Guard to ensure 99.995 availability.
