Oracle Autonomous Database

Oracle Cloud provides a set of data management services built on self-driving Oracle Autonomous Database technology to deliver automated patching, upgrades, and tuning, including performing all routine database maintenance tasks while the system is running, without human intervention.

When you create an Autonomous 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 on Public Cloud, a private cloud in public cloud choice. A completely dedicated compute, storage, network and database service for only a single tenant, providing for the highest levels of security isolation and governance.
  • Dedicated on Cloud@Customer, Autonomous Database on dedicated infrastructure running on on Exadata Database Machine system in your data center, together with the networking configuration that connects it to Oracle Cloud.
