Autonomous Database benefits

Autonomous Database deployment

Autonomous Database services offer multiple deployment possibilities for lowest cost, operational control, and isolation.

Shared infrastructure


  • Fully automated deployment of resources—pay for what you use
  • Lowest cost to get started with no minimum commitment requirement

Dedicated infrastructure


  • Complete isolation of your data and operations, with a private dedicated database cloud within public cloud
  • Dedicated system resources—such as processor, memory, network, or storage—offer greater control over operational policies and customizations

Cloud@Customer infrastructure


  • Autonomous Database in your data center to meet regulatory, data residency, or network latency requirements for workloads that cannot move to public cloud
  • Enables IT to easily deliver self-service databases to business users and developers while ensuring security and governance of all data
