ORACLE 18C – Autonomous Database Cloud


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