Oracle Sets New Standard with World’s First Autonomous Database

Journey to Autonomous Database


Oracle is revolutionizing how data is managed with the introduction of the world’s first "self-driving" database. This ground-breaking Oracle Database technology automates management to deliver unprecedented availability, performance, and security—at a significantly lower cost.

Powered by Oracle Database 18c, the next generation of the industry-leading database, Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud offers total automation based on machine learning and eliminates human labor, human error, and manual tuning.


Get unmatched reliability and performance at half the cost.

  • No Human Labor: Database automatically upgrades, patches, and tunes itself while running; automates security updates with no downtime window required.
  • No Human Error: SLA guarantees 99.995% reliability and availability, which minimizes costly planned and unplanned downtime to less than 30 minutes a year.
  • No Manual Performance Tuning: Database consumes less compute and storage because of machine learning and automatic compression. Combined with lower manual admin costs, Oracle offers even bigger cost savings.

At Oracle OpenWorld 2017, Oracle Chairman of the Board and CTO Larry Ellison unveiled his vision for the world’s first autonomous database cloud.

Oracle OpenWorld 2017 Review (31st October 2017 - 250 slides)


Powered by Oracle Database 18c, the next generation of the industry-leading database, Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud uses ground-breaking machine learning to enable automation that eliminates human labor, human error and manual tuning, to enable unprecedented availability, high performance and security at a much lower cost.

“This is the most important thing we’ve done in a long, long time,” said Ellison. “The automation does everything. We can guarantee availability of 99.995 percent, less than 30 minutes of planned or unplanned downtime.”



The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud eliminates the human labor associated with tuning, patching, updating and maintaining the database and includes the following capabilities:

Self-Driving: Provides continuous adaptive performance tuning based on machine learning. Automatically upgrades and patches itself while running. Automatically applies security updates while running to protect against cyberattacks.
Self-Scaling: Instantly resizes compute and storage without downtime. Cost savings are multiplied because Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud consumes less compute and storage than Amazon, with lower manual administration costs.
Self-Repairing: Provides automated protection from downtime. SLA guarantees 99.995 percent reliability and availability, which reduces costly planned and unplanned downtime to less than 30-minutes per year.

The Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud handles many different workload styles, including transactions, mixed workloads, data warehouses, graph analytics, departmental applications, document stores and IoT. The first Autonomous Database Cloud offering, for data warehouse workloads, is planned to be available in calendar year 2017.




Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is a next-generation cloud service built on the self-driving Oracle Autonomous Database technology using machine learning to deliver unprecedented performance, reliability and ease of deployment for data warehouses. As an autonomous cloud service, it eliminates error-prone manual management tasks and frees up DBA resources, which can now be applied to implementing more strategic business projects.

“Every organization is trying to leverage the overwhelming amount of data generated in our digital economy,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president, IDC. “With a history of established leadership in the database software market segment, it is no surprise that Oracle is pioneering a next-generation data management platform. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is designed to deliver industry-leading database technology performance with unmatched flexibility, enterprise scale and simplicity. The intent is to ensure that businesses get more value from their data and modernize how data is managed.”

Highlights of the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud include:


Simplicity: Unlike traditional cloud services with complex, manual configurations that require a database expert to specify data distribution keys and sort keys, build indexes, reorganize data or adjust compression, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is a simple “load and go” service. Users specify tables, load data and then run their workloads in a matter of seconds—no manual tuning is needed.
Industry-Leading Performance: Unlike traditional cloud services, which use generic compute shapes for database cloud services, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is built on the high-performance Oracle Exadata platform. Performance is further enhanced by fully-integrated machine learning algorithms which drive automatic caching, adaptive indexing and advanced compression.
Instant Elasticity: Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud allocates new data warehouses of any size in seconds and scales compute and storage resources independently of one another with no downtime. Elasticity enables customers to pay for exactly the resources that the database workloads require as they grow and shrink.

Oracle OpenWorld 2017: Keynote by Larry Ellison


Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is powered by the next generation of the world’s #1 database, Oracle Database 18c. Oracle Database 18c delivers breakthrough automation capabilities, as well as greatly enhanced OLTP, analytics and consolidation technologies.

If everything Oracle CTO and co-founder Larry Ellison said the evening of Oct. 1 is true, then the company's board of directors, investors and stockholders had better have a meeting and find out whether Oracle will actually be able to make a profit from this new-fangled cloud-service business.

Highly Automated IT



Ellison spent a good portion of his opening keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 demonstrating how "cheap" Oracle's in-cloud workload processing is versus Amazon Web Services' RDS (relational database system). He explained in a series of demos that because Oracle's cloud service is anywhere from 6 to 15 times faster that AWS in processing the same workload, Oracle thus is 6 to 15 times "cheaper" than AWS.

Case in point: For the same "market research" workload, Ellison pitted an 8-node Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud instance against a similar 8-node AWS DS2.xlarge cloud. The same eight queries were fed to both cloud services.

Timers were started. Oracle claimed AWS's processors took 244 seconds to do the job, costing the user 27 cents' worth of computing time. Oracle then claimed its own service took a  mere 38 seconds to do the job, costing the user 2 cents' worth of cloudtime. This is going to be the new normal for the super-fast new DB, Ellison contended.

Larry Ellison introduced not only the aforementioned "world's first autonomous database cloud," but also an as-yet unnamed automated security product, which he said he would detail later in the week. He also used some of his time onstage to skewer Equifax following the security breach it suffered earlier this year in which more than 140 million people had their personal credit information compromised. We'll get to that in a minute.

Larry Ellison said both the Autonomous Database Cloud and the security system use machine learning for automation to eliminate human labor, human error and manual tuning, and to enable availability, high performance and security at a much lower cost than competitors that include AWS.

“These systems are highly, highly automated--this means we do everything we can to avoid human intervention," Larry Ellison said. "This is the most important thing we've done in a long, long time. The automation does everything.

Security is 'Robotic,' 'Autonomous'

"They're robotic; they're autonomous. In security, it's our computers versus their (hackers') computers. It's cyber warfare. We have to have a lot better computer systems, a lot more automation if we're going to defend our data."

Ellison said the automated security system would scan the entire system 24/7, know immediately when an intruder gets into it, and would be able to stop and isolate the intruder faster than any human can do it. He didn't mention that there are already systems out there that do the same thing, such as Vectra Networks, Vera and others.

On the DB side, Ellison said the database cloud eliminates human labor that touches tuning, patching, updating and maintaining the database. The company listed the following capabilities:

Self-Driving: Provides continuous adaptive performance tuning based on machine learning. Automatically upgrades and patches itself while running. Automatically applies security updates while running to protect against cyberattacks.
Self-Scaling: Instantly resizes compute and storage without downtime. Cost savings are multiplied because Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud consumes less compute and storage than Amazon, with lower manual administration costs.




Self-Repairing: Provides automated protection from downtime. SLA guarantees 99.995 percent reliability and availability, which reduces costly planned and unplanned downtime to less than 30-minutes per year.
Oracle said the database cloud is designed to handle a high number of different workloads, including transactions, mixed workloads, data warehouses, graph analytics, departmental applications, document stores and IoT.

The first Autonomous Database Cloud offering, for data warehouse workloads, is planned to be available in calendar year 2017, Ellison said.

Details on Oracle's Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud

Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud ostensibly eliminates error-prone manual management tasks and frees up DBA resources, which can now be applied to implementing more strategic business projects.

Key features, according to Oracle, include:


  • Simplicity: Unlike traditional cloud services with complex, manual configurations that require a database expert to specify data distribution keys and sort keys, build indexes, reorganize data or adjust compression, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is a simple “load and go” service. Users specify tables, load data and then run their workloads in a matter of seconds—no manual tuning is needed.
  • Performance: Unlike conventional cloud services, which use generic compute shapes for database cloud services, Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is built on the high-performance Oracle Exadata platform. Performance is further enhanced by fully-integrated machine learning algorithms which drive automatic caching, adaptive indexing and advanced compression.
  • Elasticity: Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud allocates new data warehouses of any size in seconds and scales compute and storage resources independently of one another with no downtime. Elasticity enables customers to pay for exactly the resources that the database workloads require as they grow and shrink.
  • Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud: is powered by the company's latest database, Oracle Database 18c. Oracle Database 18c offers new automation capabilities in addition to enhanced OLTP, analytics and consolidation technologies.


Ellison on Equifax, Security

"You've got to know (about a breach) during the reconnaissance phase of a cyber attack," Ellison said, "when someone is nosing around in your computer system--trying to steal a password, trying to steal someone's identity. As they come in and start looking around, you'd better detect that that's happening."

Ellison chastised Equifax for not patching its system in time.

"I know it's a shock, but there was a patch available for Equifax, but somebody didn't apply it. I saw where the CEO  lost his job--which doesn't bother me now, I'm not a CEO. That's a risky job those guys have," Ellison said with a slight laugh. "But no, I'd lose my job, too. It's a clean sweep (with a breach like Equifax's); directors aren't safe, nobody's safe when something like that happens."

This is going to get a lot worse before it gets better, Ellison said.

"People are going to get better at stealing data; we have to get better at protecting it," he said.

The Oracle Autonomous Cloud will become available on-premises or in the Oracle public or private clouds for data warehousing production workloads in December. It will become available for other specific workloads in June 2018.

Databases Are Moving to Cloud, Are You?

With Oracle CTO Larry Ellison’s Keynote at Oracle OpenWorld 2017 #oow17 about World’s first Autonomous Database 18c  I received 100s of messages, some worried ‘Is DBA as a Career Over‘ while others ready to prepare for now & future ‘What Oracle DBAs should do to prepare for Future or for Cloud‘

MOUG17: DBA 2.0 is Dead; Long Live DBA 3.0 (How to Prepare!)


First of all you as a DBA, there is nothing to worry about. There will still be a role of DBAs but it will transition from less of routine tasks like Install, Patch or Upgrade to more innovative tasks like Architecture Design, Deployment, Security, Integration, and Migration to Cloud.

Databases are already moving to Cloud and over next few years, more and more Databases will move to Cloud (mainly in PaaS space – If you are not familiar with SaaS, PaaS & IaaS then check here).

In my view, every change brings new opportunity & here is your chance to learn about this new Role as Oracle Cloud DBA to stay ahead in professional Career, Earn More & Enjoy What You Do.

Role of Oracle Cloud DBA

One of the most common questions being asked in our private Facebook Group dedicated to Oracle Cloud and those join our Oracle Database Cloud Administration (Cloud DBA) Training is about Role of Cloud DBA

Oracle Database Cloud: DBCS architecture for DBAs


Looking at so many requests, I created a video on How the Role of DBA changes with Cloud and how the Roles and Responsibilities changes as you upgrade yourself from DBA to Cloud DBA.

Cloud DBA: Role of DBA in Cloud


As shown in the Video these are the following tasks that you will be doing as Oracle Cloud DBA:


  • Design & Specifications of Database i.e. CPU, Memory, Disk Space, Future Growth, High Availability & Disaster Recovery (Yes even in Cloud, you have to consider HA & DR).
  • Creating & Configuration of Oracle Database is very simple in Cloud with Click of a Button or with REST API & JSON but someone need to invoke these Scripts or Click (Cloud DBA will perform this task)
  • As an Oracle Cloud DBA, you need to learn new tools for Start/Stop i.e. DBaaSCLI (Database as a Service Command Line Interface) or Database Service Console
  • Still, you have to Patch but using new tools like DBaaSCLI with DBPATCHM or RACCLI
  • You still have to do the Back-up and Recovery using new tools and Oracle Storage Service (OSS).

Patching an Oracle Database Cloud Service


  • You still will be learning about Migration to the Cloud (Lift & Shift) and this is where you can expect a lot of work to migrate existing on-premise databases to Cloud.

Oracle Multitenant: Isolation and Agility with Economies of Scale

  • You still will be learning about Disaster Recovery (or Data Guard ) in Cloud and setting up Disaster Recovery (DR) on Cloud for Data Center Failover (Yes this is not available out of Box & You as Cloud DBA will have to set it up).

Oracle RAC on Oracle Database Cloud Bare Metal Services

  • You still will be configuring RAC on Cloud or you will be deploying maximum availability Architecture. Check my Video Blog on Setting Up RAC Database in Oracle Cloud
  • You still will be configuring OEM CC 13c: Hybrid Cloud Management to Manage both On-Premise & Cloud Database or using Oracle Management Cloud (OMC)
