Autonomous Transaction Processing

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing delivers a self-driving, self-securing, self-repairing database service that can instantly scale to meet demands of a variety of applications: mission-critical transaction processing, mixed transactions and analytics, IoT, JSON documents, and so on.

When you create an Autonomous Transaction Processing database, you can deploy it to one of two kinds of Exadata infrastructure:

  • Shared, a simple and elastic choice. Oracle autonomously operates all aspects of the database life cycle from database placement to backup and updates.
  • Dedicated, a private cloud in public cloud choice. A completely dedicated compute, storage, network and database service for only a single tenant. Dedicated infrastructure provides for the highest levels of security isolation and governance. The customer has customizable operational policies to guide Autonomous Operations for workload placement, workload optimization, update scheduling, availability level, over provisioning and peak usage.
