What's New

Here’s a summary of noteworthy Oracle Autonomous Database Dedicated Deployment changes.

September 2019

Feature Description

Autonomous Data Warehouse supports dedicated deployments

When you create an Autonomous Data Warehouse deployment, you can now choose between the serverless and dedicated deployment options.

For information about creating and managing dedicated Autonomous Data Warehouse deployments, see Administrator's Guide to Oracle Autonomous Database Dedicated Deployments.

For information about using them, see User's Guide to Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Dedicated Deployments.

Clone a dedicated database

You can now create a new dedicated Autonomous Database by cloning an existing one, choosing to clone either the full database or only the database metadata.

For instructions, see Clone a Dedicated Autonomous Database.

Monitor databases using Performance Hub

The Oracle Cloud Infrastructure console now includes Performance Hub for dedicated Autonomous Databases, which you can use to view real-time and historical performance data.

For more information, see Use Performance Hub to Monitor Databases.

Use network security groups to control network access

You can now use network security groups in addition to or instead of security lists to control network access to the VCN and subnets hosting your dedicated Autonomous Database deployments.

For information about specifying network security groups for your Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure resources, see Change the Network Security Groups Assigned to an Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Resource.

For general information about network security groups, see Network Security Groups, and for a comparison of network security groups and security lists, see Comparison of Security Lists and Network Security Groups.

Feature Description

Use Events and Notifications to watch resource activity

Oracle Autonomous Database now generates and sends events to the Event service when it performs operations on resources. Using the Events service, you can create rules to capture these events and perform actions such as sending you emails using the Notifications service.

For more information about how the Events service works and how to set up rules and actions, see Overview of Events.

For listings of the operations that generate events, see Autonomous Database Event Types, Autonomous Container Database Event Types, and Autonomous Exadata Infrastructure Event Types.

July 2019

Feature Description

Use Enterprise Manager to manage databases

You can now use Oracle Enterprise Manager to discover and manage dedicated Autonomous Transaction Processing databases, provided you are using, at a minimum, Enterprise Manager version 13.3 with EM DB Plugin Bundle Patch

For information on how to take advantage of this capability, see Enterprise Manager Cloud Control Administrator's Guide for Oracle Autonomous Databases.

June 2019

A new deployment choice for Autonomous Transaction Processing, called Dedicated Deployment, is now available.

Now you have two deployment choices, Serverless and Dedicated.

  • Serverless — a simple and elastic deployment 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 deployment choice. A completely dedicated compute, storage, network and database service for only a single tenant. Dedicated deployment provides for the highest levels of security isolation and governance. The customer has customizable operational policies for autonomous operations: workload placement, workload optimization, update scheduling, availability level, over provisioning and peak usage.

    Dedicated deployment allows an organization to rethink database IT, enabling a customizable private database cloud in the public cloud. The dedicated choice makes it possible to deliver a self-service database capability that aligns with organizational structure. Different lines of business or project teams can have complete autonomy in their individual execution while the company itself gets a fleet wide simplified aggregation of overall health, availability and cost management. This separation of Fleet versus Database administration allows simple budgeting controls and resource isolation without getting in the way of the line of business execution. And a dedicated database deployment will support the entire spectrum of needs from simple apps to apps that require the highest governance, consistent performance and operational controls.

Autonomous Transaction Processing Dedicated Features

  • Private cloud isolation: DB, Container DB, Cluster of VM, Hardware (Exadata), Network (VCN)
  • Customizable operational policies: DB separation, patching and upgrade, availability, over-provisioning and peak usage
  • Configurable: maintenance schedule and type, backup retention time
  • Deploy in Oracle Cloud VCN with Private IPs
  • Oracle Database 19c: Auto Indexing and other 19c enhancements
  • Separate Administrative Roles: Fleet Admin and DB Admin
  • Others: Performance Hub Metrics, Database Vault, SQL Developer Web, ORDS, Application Express, Enterprise Manager
