Data is automatically distributed across shards to simplify application deployment. Administrators can control the mapping of data to individual shards for regulatory or performance requirements.
Developers can access the distributed database as a single logical database due to native support for Oracle Database client drivers.
A shard catalog allows you to manage all shards in a sharded database as a single, logical database.
Dedicated Oracle Exadata Cloud Infrastructure in OCI with configurable operational policies provides processor, memory, networking, and storage resources that enable data isolation and predictable performance.
Fast, predictable database performance is provided by a distributed database architecture with no resources shared across database shards.
The fault-tolerant Exadata platform combined with a distributed database architecture enable 99.95% availability SLAs that increase to 99.995% when used with Oracle Autonomous Data Guard.
Data distribution can be configured by administrators so that data stays in a given geographical location to comply with data residency requirements.
Oracle Data Safe, included with the service, makes it easy to discover sensitive data, evaluate security risks, mask sensitive data, and implement and monitor security controls.
Provides automatic encryption for the entire database and for backups with encryption keys that you create and control, ensuring your data is always secure, at rest and in motion.
Natively supports multiple data types including document, graph, spatial, JSON, XML, and more for simpler application development.
Provides database management REST APIs, web interface, and PL/SQL Gateway.
Oracle APEX Application Development, Oracle’s low-code application development platform, is built into Oracle Autonomous Database and eliminates 98% of hand coding, empowering developers to rapidly build sophisticated applications.
