The new self-governing DBMS has no analogue in the world and its nature is revolutionary as the Internet, Larry Ellison said. Revolution in Database Management Systems (DBMS) announced the leader of the software corporation Oracle Larry Ellison. The company's new product, presented to Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco, is a completely self-managing database that has no analogue in the world, says the developer. Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is based on Oracle Database 18c. The first autonomous database will be operational this year in Data Warehouse cloud service. Later, it will include other services such as OLTP Database, Express Database and NoSQL Database. The innovative DBMS can be deployed on an Oracle Exadata client platform, in the Oracle Cloud cloud, and even embedded in Oracle Cloud at Customer, the software developer said. According to Larry Ellison, the self-manageable database is the same revolutionary development as the Internet. Thanks to machine learning technology, Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud almost does not need administration and setup. Moreover, this DBMS does not allow human error. It works on the principle of autopilot action.
The ability of the base itself to detect abnormal events will significantly increase its level of protection, said Larry Ellison. For example, the database can independently determine whether a manager has entered the system from an unusual geographic location. The autonomous DBMS will also be able to track cyberattacks and intercept them in a timely manner, as well as implement security updates without ending their work, Oracle said. As a result of automatic cache optimization, indexing, parallel computing, data allocation and compression, the database will have less requirements for system resources. In addition, tasks associated with OLTP and data repositories will run faster. Larry Ellison believes the new Oracle DBMS will help businesses save costs. Tests show that using Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is 5 to 8 times cheaper than Oracle in the Amazon RDS cloud with identical queries for the same data. When comparing queries with Amazon Redshift, it turns out that the autonomous DBMS performs them 15 times cheaper. Amazon Data Warehouse users moving to the Oracle Autonomous Database will save between 50% and 80% of the money they are currently paying, says Ellison.
Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud guarantees accessibility at 99,995%, ie. the permissible interruption is no more than 30 minutes per year. According to Larry Ellison, the Amazon cloud does not provide such continuity, even though the cost of the service is much higher than Oracle's self-managing Oracle.
