New self-driving cloud database uses groundbreaking machine learning and automation to deliver unprecedented cost savings, security, availability, and productivity
Leveraging innovative machine learning and automation capabilities, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, delivering unprecedented cost savings, security, availability, and productivity, is available in the market. Oracle’s new self-driving database cloud service is built to run the world’s most demanding finance, retail, manufacturing, and government applications, supporting a complex mix of high-performance transaction processing, reporting, batch, and analytic workloads.
“Oracle is by far the best database in the world and it just got a lot better because now it’s autonomous,” said Larry Ellison, Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO . “This delivers a much more reliable, much more secure system—a system that protects against data theft, a system that is up 99.995 percent of the time, and a system that makes organizations and their developers dramatically more productive.”
Complementing the existing Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse service, Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing can support a complex mix of high-performance transactions, reporting, batch, IoT, and machine learning in a single database, allowing for simpler application development and deployment, and enabling real-time analytics, personalization, and fraud detection on live transactional data.

“The toughest job a DBA has is that of tuning and maintaining a mission-critical transactional database,” said Carl Olofson, research vice president for IDC’s Data Management Software research. “In addition to examining statistics and applying tuning adjustments, the DBA must also apply patches, including security patches, on a very frequent basis, which is both an error-prone and operationally-disruptive activity. With Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing, Oracle has eliminated these problematic tasks, allowing the DBA to concentrate on the higher value activity of enabling more business-responsive applications, and helping the enterprise to ensure that data will not be compromised due to known vulnerabilities.”
