In an approach to provide better services at lower costs than other leading players like AWS in the market, Oracle has announced the general availability of Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud.
Built on Oracle Autonomous Database technology, the new service uses machine learning to deliver highly reliable and scalable data management capability, enabling data warehouse deployment within seconds.
Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison claimed that the new service comes with leading security features, availability with no human intervention, and at half the cost of AWS. “This technology changes everything. The Oracle Autonomous Database is based on technology as revolutionary as the Internet. It patches, tunes, and updates itself. Amazon’s databases cost more and do less.”
The Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud eliminates the complexities related to configuration, tuning and administration, even when the warehouse workloads and data volumes change.
Oracle’s new platform makes the cloud data warehousing easier and secure with automatic backup, and encryption. Users can easily migrate to cloud because of the compatibility with existing on-premises databases.
It comes with independent scaling of compute and storage services so that users can grow or shrink resources as per their need.
The Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is first service in the Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud Services portfolio. More services including Oracle Autonomous Database for Transaction Processing, Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database, and Oracle Autonomous Graph Database, are under development.
All the services under this portfolio will be self-managing, self-securing, and self-repairing. It will eliminate the human error and automatically patch them while running.
Since the services will be self-securing, they will automatically protect against cyberattacks and encrypt the data. The self-repairing capability of Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud Services will increase the availability by automated protection from planned and unplanned downtime.
Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is available to pay-as-you-go service, to lower the costs. It is built on Oracle Database 18c, which is now available on Oracle Cloud Services.
