During a free trial, you can enable Oracle Data Safe in your tenancy, and try out all of the main features, including Activity Auditing, User Assessment, Security Assessment, Data Discovery, and Data Masking. For more information, see Trial Period.

When the free trial period ends, you have a 30-day grace period in which you can still use existing resources in Oracle Data Safe. For example, you can continue to use the databases that you registered with Oracle Data Safe during your free trial. For more information, see Grace Period.

When the grace period ends, you no longer have access to Oracle Data Safe, your target databases are deregistered from Oracle Data Safe, and all Oracle Data Safe resources are reclaimed by Oracle. At any time, you can convert your free Oracle cloud account to a paid account. With a paid account, you can use all of the features of Oracle Data Safe, and opt for paid usage for audit collection. You can also register an unlimited number of target databases. Be aware that you are billed when you register an on-premises Oracle Database or an Oracle Database on a compute instance.

Trial Period

For the first 30 days, you can do the following with Oracle Data Safe:

  • Enable Oracle Data Safe.
  • Register one or more of the following paid or free Cloud databases in your tenancy with Oracle Data Safe:
    • Autonomous Database on Shared Exadata Infrastructure with Secure Access from Everywhere
    • Autonomous Database on Shared Exadata Infrastructure with Private VCN Access
    • DB system (Virtual Machine, Bare Metal, or Exadata)
  • Register up to one paid on-premises Oracle Database or one paid Oracle Database on a compute instance. During the free trial period, billing for registering these two types of databases is waived.
  • Create up to two Oracle Data Safe private endpoints per region in your tenancy.
  • Create one Oracle Data Safe on-premises connector per region in your tenancy.
  • Use all Oracle Data Safe features with your registered target databases. You can configure audit trail collection for up to one million audit records per target database per month. Audit collection is automatically stopped after you reach the limit. Only non-paid audit collection is allowed. Auto-purge is disabled, meaning Oracle Data Safe will not delete any audit records on your target database.

Grace Period

When the 30-day trial period ends, you have another 30-days of grace period during which you can continue to use the following:

  • Existing Oracle Data Safe services that you enabled during the trial period. You cannot enable Oracle Data Safe in any more regions.
  • Existing registered target databases. You cannot register any new target databases.
  • Existing Oracle Data Safe private endpoints and/or an existing Oracle Data Safe on-premises connector for already registered target databases. You cannot create and deploy a new private endpoint or on-premises connector.
  • All Oracle Data Safe features supported for the target databases that you registered during the trial period. You can continue to collect up to one million audit records per target database per month. Audit collection is automatically stopped after you reach the limit. Only non-paid audit collection is allowed. Auto-purge is disabled, meaning Oracle Data Safe will not delete any audit records on your target database.
