Oracle has rolled out yet another database offering to its Autonomous Database portfolio. Called Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database, it is a self-driving database cloud service targeted for developers.
Autonomous NoSQL Database will be delivered as a fully managed service which has been designed to handle NoSQL applications requiring low latency, data model flexibility, and elastic scaling. These kind of NoSQL applications can include UI personalization, online fraud detection, gaming, shopping carts, etc.
Powered by machine learning and automation capabilities, the new offering will be a convenient answer to the workloads that need fast and predictable responses to simple operations.
It comes with APIs which will allow developers to focus on application development, rather than managing servers, storage expansion, cluster deployments, software installation, and backup.
Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database will automatically allocate the resources required to meet dynamic workload needs, when developers specify the throughput and capacity.
For interoperability between standard relational and standard JSON data models, the service comes with a non-proprietary SQL language. Using it, developers can run the same application in cloud or on-premises without any platform lock-in.
Along with this, it comes with software development kit and support for main development languages like Python, Node.js, and Java.
“We continue to leverage our revolutionary autonomous capabilities to transform the database market,” said Andrew Mendelsohn, executive vice president, Oracle Database.
“Our latest self-driving database cloud service, Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database, provides extreme reliability and performance at very low costs to achieve a highly flexible application development framework.”
Since the new offering will run on Oracle Cloud infrastructure, it will automate the key management processes like patching, tuning and upgrading so that critical infrastructure can run automatically.
Oracle claimed that its new offering will provide high availability and up to 70% lower cost than Amazon DynamoDB.
