Oracle Autonomous Database@Azure lets organizations run workloads where they choose, modernize and innovate with Oracle and Azure services, and simplify cloud purchasing and management. Customers combine Azure services of their choosing with Autonomous Database, an OCI service that’s deeply integrated with and colocated in Azure data centers, achieving high performance, scale, and availability for their Oracle Database workloads.
Oracle Globally Distributed Autonomous Database is a fully automated distributed cloud database that’s easy to use, develop with, and manage. Its shared-nothing, sharded architecture is built on top of Oracle Autonomous Database, letting transaction processing and analytics applications benefit from hyperscale performance and scalability as well as extreme availability. Organizations can easily meet data residency requirements and the needs of distributed global users.
Oracle Globally Distributed Autonomous Database enables transactional or data warehousing applications to access a distributed autonomous database.
The database is divided into multiple physically independent shards, which can all be placed in one OCI region or different regions.
An application interfaces with a shard director, which provides automated connection routing between shards and is transparent to users.
A shard catalog supports automated shard deployment and centralized management of a distributed database across regions. It also supports multi-shard queries.
Each shard is replicated with Data Guard for high availability.
Build and deploy machine learning models using built-in algorithms, and answer natural language questions using organizational data.
Apply pattern recognition, classification, and statistical analysis to large data sets.
Analyze geospatial data and offer insights to business opportunities across industries.
Build and deploy modern, data-driven applications 38X faster than regular coding.
Load and transform data, generate business models, and quickly discover anomalies and hidden patterns.
Discover sensitive data, evaluate security risks, and automatically monitor and enforce security controls.
