Autonomous Database Products

Oracle Autonomous Database is available exclusively through Oracle and is offered in two versions optimized to meet the specialized requirements for online transaction processing and data warehousing. Both use machine learning and automation to eliminate complexity, human error, and manual management, helping to ensure higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency. Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing Service allows much simpler application development and deployment for enabling real-time analytics, personalization, and fraud detection. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse delivers unprecedented reliability, performance, and highly elastic data management that enables data warehouse deployment in seconds.

“Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse will allow Hertz to reduce costs and reinvest savings into improving our customer service and rewarding our customers,” said Benjamin Arnulf, Director, BI & Analytics, Hertz

What Is Oracle Autonomous Database?

Oracle redefines data management with the world’s first autonomous database. Autonomous Database 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

Autonomous Database 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 is self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing, which helps to eliminate manual database management and human errors.


Automatic, in-depth 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. Autonomous Database will automatically implement Oracle Real Application Clusters (RAC) and cross-region Oracle Active Data Guard to ensure 99.995 availability.
