IDC’s top database analyst Carl Olofson released a new, comprehensive business value study based on the real-world experiences of Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse customers worldwide. IDC’s in-depth research reveals that customers obtain a 417% return on investment (ROI), 63% lower total cost of ownership (TCO) and that ADW pays for itself in 5 months.
“Other cloud providers and DBMS vendors are attempting on-prem cloud services. Those services are, in general, more limited, less mature…as a result, they all lack most of the on-prem features of Oracle’s Cloud@Customer offerings and do not, as of this writing, align to the Oracle Autonomous Database feature set. In fact, no other provider yet offers autonomous capabilities or a full public cloud on-prem that Oracle currently offers. More importantly, there are no known fully automated, fully managed Oracle Database offerings available for on-prem deployment other than Autonomous Database on Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer.”
Oracle has by far the best Tier-1 Cloud Database Platform and has developed a robust infrastructure platform with Oracle Exadata X8M that is the basis of database services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and Cloud@Customer, delivering architectural equivalency. Oracle Cloud@Customer Cloud Database Platform is moving powerfully down the database convergence and autonomous dimensions, as was shown by the Oracle Database 21c announcement in early 2021.
“The first thing that jumps out at you is that Oracle with Autonomous Database is off the charts, far ahead of anybody else on this…Oracle has a big lead.”
“Compared to Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer X8M, the cost of running the same large mission-critical Oracle-based workloads in a traditional IT datacenter is 96% higher and on AWS RDS on Outposts is 90% higher. In other words, the costs for DIY and RDS on AWS Outposts are nearly 2X higher than the Oracle solution. Wikibon concludes that it is now impossible to replicate these cost benefits with either a traditional datacenter approach or AWS services.”
The leading security-focused industry analyst research firm, KuppingerCole, has just released its vendor ratings for Cloud Database and Big Data security and Oracle Autonomous Database is ranked Number One overall—while AWS and Microsoft Azure are tied for 7th place. This marks the third consecutive year that Oracle is ranked Number One in overall database security.
KuppingerCole industry analysts today published a comprehensive research report on the cloud database market, and Oracle Autonomous Database is ranked Number One Overall Cloud Database; Number One Cloud Database Technology Leader; Number One Cloud Database Innovation Leader; and Number One Cloud Database Product Leader.
CRN’s Products of the Year awards for 2020 honor the very best partner-friendly products and services that launched over the past year—as chosen by solution providers themselves. In the category of Big Data, Oracle Autonomous Database was selected as the Overall Winner for 2020, topping Snowflake, MariaDB SkySQL Database-as-a-Service, Couchbase and Splunk.
Oracle Autonomous Database scored highest in all (4) Use Cases in the 2020 Gartner “Critical Capabilities for Cloud Database Management Systems for Operational Use Cases” report.
“So those differentiators for Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse—better, hardened security; a fully converged autonomous data-warehouse service that greatly simplifies management and maintenance; plus nonstop self-tuning, self-monitoring and patching—are all big pluses in Oracle’s favor. But on top of those advantages, customers are also seeing big cost savings when they go with Oracle…”
“The importance of “autonomous” cannot be overstated. ADW is the easiest-to-use database that Oracle has ever released. It also delivers more than ‘just’ self-management; it ensures levels of performance, availability, flexibility, and security that other well-known self-managed data warehouses—such as Snowflake and AWS Redshift—simply cannot…ADW is a genuine market shift—for Oracle itself, for Oracle versus its competitors, and most of all for customers.”
“Oracle is the only vendor to provide autonomous database operations, a pay-per-use model, dynamic scaling, and reduced TCO in the customer data center without moving your data or applications.”
“Oracle’s longstanding database competitors as well as newer cloud-based competitors have failed to develop a vision and strategy to match Oracle’s offering of a universal Autonomous Database.”
“Rather than scale down and run smaller databases, customers need to realize that overall size is not a limiting factor when running Database 21c in OCI, making it a prime destination for cloud database consolidation. For example, the largest AWS database compute instance is roughly equal to the smallest Exadata Cloud Service X8M (ExaCS) database. Oracle can then scale ExaCS to 32x larger than the largest AWS offering on the compute side.”
“None of these databases come close to the Oracle Autonomous Database automation capabilities. Oracle Autonomous Database transcends the barriers of everything else on the market today.”
“Oracle is the first, and so far, the only database provider to deliver a fully autonomous database. And with the latest release, Oracle is the first to deliver a self-driving database both in the cloud and on-premises.”
“ADB is another Oracle first that yields substantial savings by reducing much of the manual labor involved in setting up, tuning, patching, and updating Oracle Database…the author has experimented hands on with ADB and found these benefits to be real and substantial.”
“Forrester identified Oracle as one of the graph database vendors that leads the pack for property and RDF graph model support. They gave Oracle its highest rating (5/5) on graph analytics, data security, app development, workloads, and high availability and disaster recovery.”
