Hear more about benefits like auto-scalability, high performance, security, and autonomous management on-premises or in cloud—eliminating complexity and lowering operational costs.

Database:

  • Autonomous Database: Oracle Autonomous Database is an all-in-one cloud database solution for data marts, data lakes, operational reporting, and batch data processing. Oracle uses machine learning to completely automate all routine database tasks—ensuring higher performance, reliability, security, and operational efficiency. Oracle Autonomous Database runs natively on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure while providing workload-optimized cloud services for transaction processing and data warehousing.
  • Database: Oracle Database offers market-leading performance, scalability, reliability, and security, both on-premises and in the cloud. Oracle Database 19c is the current long-term release, and it provides the highest level of release stability and longest time-frame for support and bug fixes. Oracle Database 21c, also available for production use today as an innovation release, provides an early insight into the many enhancements and new capabilities.
  • Database Cloud: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure’s suite of optimized database capabilities enable customers to operate efficiently and at low cost, by closely aligning resources to their specific needs. Companies implement digital transformation with a combination of fully-managed Autonomous Database capabilities, the performance and control of Exadata Cloud services, and the low cost of Oracle Database, MySQL database, and NoSQL database cloud services.
  • Database Recovery: Learn more about Oracle’s variety of approaches to database recovery, including Recovery Manager (RMAN), Active Data Guard, and GoldenGate, all of which provide the highest level of data protection and availability.
  • Database Performance: Meet stringent performance requirements in real-time environments and data center deployments, with a range of capabilities designed for optimized low-latency and high-throughput.
  • Database Security: Oracle’s database security solutions reduce the risk of data breaches and make it easier for customers to meet compliance requirements. Encryption, data masking, privileged user access controls, activity monitoring, and auditing enable IT teams to strongly secure Oracle Database environments and understand potential vulnerabilities.
