Standard Database Service

Oracle Standard Database Service is a low-cost, managed compute and storage platform that allows you to securely run Oracle Database workloads in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Flexible virtual machine shapes and consumption-based pricing simplifies meeting application performance and availability requirements.

Introducing Oracle Database Zero Data Loss Autonomous Recovery Service

Oracle’s new fully managed data protection service improves ransomware resiliency by protecting your database transactions in real time.

Why choose Oracle Standard Database Service?

Oracle Standard Database Service features

Secure and low-cost database

Oracle Standard Database Service allows you to develop workgroup, department-level, and web applications with Oracle Database Standard Edition 2 on OCI.

  • Runs Oracle Database 12c, 19c, or 21c with converged database capabilities to meet application-specific requirements
  • Protects your databases at the source with multilayered security, including always-on transparent database encryption
  • Increases developer productivity with logical volume manager for fast provisioning of single-node virtual machine database systems for Oracle Database
  • Meets your application needs while minimizing costs with flexible and scalable OCPU licenses
  • Increases productivity by simplifying database lifecycle management with built-in automation
  • Includes Oracle APEX, Oracle Machine Learning, and Oracle Spatial and Graph features—at no cost—enabling you to add innovative, in-database, analytic capabilities to your existing applications
  • Increases database protection and operational efficiency with Oracle Database Autonomous Recovery Service
  • Leverages your existing Oracle Database licenses with bring-your-own-license (BYOL) subscriptions

Most flexible platform for Oracle Database cloud service

Virtual machine infrastructure brings the most flexibility and scalability for deploying Oracle Databases on OCI. A choice of OCPU shapes and block volume storage performance levels ensure database workloads meet your business application performance requirements.

  • Compute shapes with 1 to 8 OCPUs (2-16 vCPUs) supports small to medium database processing requirements
  • Up to 16GB of memory per OCPU provides database resources for small to medium database workloads
  • Up to 80TB of higher performance block volume storage allows you to meet application requirements and optimize costs

OCPU per hour

Oracle Standard Database cloud pricing is based on the number of enabled OCPUs per instance, dependent on the type and shape of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure compute selected. Oracle Standard Database Service running on virtual machines also requires customers to select Oracle Cloud Infrastructure block storage.

*To make it easier to compare pricing across cloud service providers, Oracle web pages show both vCPU (virtual CPUs) prices and OCPU (Oracle CPU) prices for products with compute-based pricing. The products themselves, provisioning in the portal, billing, etc. continue to use OCPU (Oracle CPU) units. OCPUs represent physical CPU cores. Most CPU architectures, including x86, execute two threads per physical core, so 1 OCPU is the equivalent of 2 vCPUs for x86-based compute. The per-hour OCPU rate customers are billed at is therefore twice the vCPU price since they receive two vCPUs of compute power for each OCPU, unless it’s a sub-core instance such as preemptible instances. Additional details supporting the difference between OCPU vs. vCPU can be accessed here.
