A fully automated database service optimized to run transactional, analytical, and batch workloads concurrently. To accelerate performance, it is preconfigured for row format, indexes, and data caching, while providing scalability, availability, transparent security, and real-time operational analytics. With Autonomous Database, application developers and DBAs can rapidly, easily, and cost-effectively develop and deploy applications without sacrificing functionality or ACID (atomicity, consistency, isolation, durability) properties. Built on Oracle Database and Oracle Exadata, Autonomous Database is available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) for shared or dedicated deployments, and on-premises with Exadata Cloud@Customer and Dedicated Region Cloud@Customer.
Deploys fault-tolerant and highly available databases in minutes.
Scales compute resources automatically to meet performance and throughput requirements without any downtime. Enables true pay-per-use experience with online dynamic scaling.
Configures and tunes databases automatically even as data and schema change over time. The memory configuration, data formats, indexes, and access structures are automatically optimized to improve performance.
Performs weekly full and daily incremental backups of the database in Oracle’s object storage and retains them for up to 60 days to restore and recover to any point in time.
Fixes hardware and software faults by continuously monitoring and predicting failures. Requests are immediately redirected to healthy devices, maintaining database performance.
Eliminates site downtime by maintaining a real-time remote copy of a production database and automatically switching from primary to remote copy using Autonomous Data Guard.
Natively supports multiple data types including document, graph, spatial, JSON, XML, and more for faster application development. Prevents data fragmentation and reduces data management hassles resulting from siloed data stores.
Provides database management REST APIs, web interface, and PL/SQL Gateway to REST-enable all your data for simpler and faster access.
APEX App Dev, Oracle’s low-code application development platform, is built into Oracle Autonomous Database, and eliminates 98% of hand coding. APEX App Dev empowers developers to rapidly build sophisticated applications.
Provides more than 30 ML algorithms, automated ML functions, and integration with open source Python and R to make it easy to build ML models and analytical dashboards without moving data out of the database.
Built-in data tools provide self-service data loading, data transformations, and business models, making it easy to load any data, run complex queries across multiple data types, build sophisticated analytical models, visualize information, deliver insights, and ease development of data-driven applications.
Create fast clones of the entire database or just the metadata, to quickly get started on new projects. Create clones from running database instances or a backup database.
Use the new Oracle Database Service for Azure to build new applications by combining Azure services with OCI-based microservices and analytics that use Oracle Database’s complete and easy to use capabilities.
Provides automatic encryption for the entire database and for backups with encryption keys that you create and control. This ensures the data is always secure at rest and in motion.
Patches and upgrades databases for security vulnerabilities with zero downtime. Applications continue to run as patching occurs.
Enables database administrators to perform all administrative tasks without ever seeing customer data. Blocks access to OS or admin privileges to prevent phishing attacks.
Oracle Data Safe, included with Oracle Autonomous Database for transaction processing and mixed workloads, makes it easy to discover sensitive data, evaluate security risks, mask sensitive data, and implement and monitor security controls.
Logs all events with minimal impact on performance. You can monitor audits anytime for analysis, forensics, and compliance.
Delivers 80% lower latency and more than 5X throughput than other cloud providers by utilizing database-optimized hardware, automated tuning, and indexing.
Provides more than 99.995% availability* using a combination of Oracle’s Gen 2 Cloud Infrastructure, Oracle Real Application Clusters, Oracle Autonomous Data Guard, and daily automatic backups.
Oracle Flashback, provided with Oracle Autonomous Database for transaction processing and mixed workloads, instantly rewinds accidental changes to application schemas, protecting users from human errors. It supports recovery at all levels, including row, transaction, and table—and across the entire database.
*The service level agreement (SLA) for 99.995% availability assumes the use of Autonomous Data Guard. The SLA is 99.95% availability when Autonomous Data Guard isn’t enabled.
