Exadata Cloud@Customer

Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer is the simplest way to move an organization’s business-critical Oracle Database workloads to the cloud. It simultaneously runs Oracle Exadata Database Service and the fully managed Oracle Autonomous Database Service inside customers’ data centers and behind their firewalls to help meet strict data residency and security requirements. Built using the latest Exadata technology, Exadata Cloud@Customer delivers the highest cloud database performance, scale, and availability, enabling organizations to run all types of database workloads faster and with up to 69% less management, according to IDC’s Business Value Analysis. Now Oracle makes it easier and less expensive for customers to adopt Autonomous Database by running it on VMs in Exadata Cloud@Customer.

Oracle Autonomous Database ECPU – FAQ (PDF)

*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.
