New Oracle 'Autonomous Database Dedicated' Targets Mission-Critical Workloads

Oracle has introduced the new Oracle Autonomous Database Dedicated service to provide customers with more control for their most mission-critical workloads.

According to Oracle, there have been more than 5,000 new Autonomous Database trials in Q4 FY19 alone.

Along with the new dedicated service, Oracle is also adding new built-in Autonomous Database developer capabilities.

The new service enables customers to go from manually-managed independent databases on-premise to a fully-autonomous and isolated private database cloud within the Oracle Public Cloud, said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, Mission-Critical Database Technologies, Oracle. “Our Autonomous Database Dedicated service eliminates the concerns enterprise customers previously had about security, isolation, and operational policies when moving to cloud.”

The Oracle Autonomous Database Dedicated service provides customers with a database as a service platform—a customizable private database cloud running on dedicated Exadata Infrastructure in the Oracle Cloud.

According to Oracle, customers can run databases of any size, scale, and criticality, and the architecture delivers workload isolation, helping to protect each database from both external risks and malicious internal users. The level of security and performance isolation can be tailored to the needs of each database, and operational policies can be customized to give customers control over database provisioning, software updates, and availability.

Oracle is also announcing availability built-in Autonomous Database developer capabilities, including Oracle Application Express (APEX), Oracle SQL Developer Web, and Oracle REST Data Services.

Oracle’s low-code application development platform, Oracle APEX, enables developers to quickly build scalable and secure enterprise apps with world-class features. Oracle APEX can be used to import spreadsheets and develop a single source of truth web application in minutes, create compelling reports and data visualizations, or build mission-critical data management applications. With Oracle APEX preinstalled and preconfigured in Oracle Autonomous Database, developers can start building applications within minutes.

Oracle SQL Developer Web, a web interface for working with the Oracle Autonomous Database, enables developers to run queries, create tables, and generate schema diagrams.

With native Oracle REST Data Services support, developers can develop and deploy RESTful services for Oracle Autonomous Database, helping to enable modern REST interfaces for relational data.
