Oracle Exadata Database Service is an automated Oracle Database service that allows organizations to run databases with the highest performance, availability, security, and cost effectiveness. Databases run faster and with fewer resources on scale-out Exadata infrastructure that includes unique optimizations for transaction processing, analytics, and mixed workloads. Online scaling of compute resources enables customers to quickly adjust consumption to match workload demands without interrupting operations while efficient database consolidation lowers total costs. Full compatibility with on-premises Oracle Database and Exadata environments makes it easy for customers to migrate workloads to the cloud.
