Note:If you update an Autonomous Database instance to use the ECPU compute model, you cannot revert back to the OCPU compute model.
See Compute Models in Autonomous Database for details on the Autonomous Database compute models.
Perform the following prerequisite steps as necessary:
Open the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Console by clicking the next to Oracle Cloud.
From the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure left navigation menu click Oracle Database and then, depending on your workload click one of: Autonomous Data Warehouse or Autonomous Transaction Processing.
On the Autonomous Databases page select an Autonomous Database from the links under the Display Name column.
To update to the ECPU compute model:
- On the Details page, under Resource allocation, in the OCPU count field click Update to ECPU model.
- In the Update billing model area.
Compute: For the compute options ECPU count and Compute auto scaling, the values are read only and you must accept the defaults. You can change the values after you update to ECPU billing model.
See Use Auto Scaling for more information.
Backup retention: The default backup retention is 60 days.
To change the default specify a value for Automatic backup retention period in days.
See Edit Automatic Backup Retention Period on Autonomous Database for more information.
- Click Save changes.
While the system applies the changes, the lifecycle state changes to Updating.
When the operation completes the lifecycle state shows Available and on the details page under Resource allocation, the fields show ECPU count and Compute auto scaling.
Notes for Updating to the ECPU billing model:
Your current storage selection is retained. You may scale up or down your storage after updating the billing model. See Add CPU or Storage Resources or Enable Auto Scaling for more information.
Updating to the ECPU compute model impacts the cost of your compute, storage, and backups. See Compute Models in Autonomous Database for details on the ECPU compute model.
Peer databases connected to an Autonomous Database instance that is updated to the ECPU compute model are also updated to the ECPU compute model.
See Use Standby Databases with Autonomous Data Guard for Disaster Recovery and Use Backup-Based Disaster Recovery for more information on the Autonomous Database disaster recovery options.
Any refreshable clones associated with an Autonomous Database instance that you update to use the ECPU compute model do not change their compute model (the associated refreshable clones continue to use the OCPU compute model). On a refreshable clone, you can update the instance to use the ECPU compute model. See Use Refreshable Clones with Autonomous Database for more information.
The JSON Database and the APEX Service workload types only support the OCPU billing model and do not support updating an Autonomous Database instance to the ECPU billing model.
