Oracle’s autonomous database

The Autonomous database created by Oracle is self-driving, self-repairing and self-securing.It is a cloud database that uses machine learning to eliminate the human labor associated with database tuning, security, backups, updates, and other routine management tasks traditionally performed by database administrators.

The Autonomous Database takes care of some of the most common and time consuming security requirements, including: encryption (both at rest and in motion), separation of duties, collection of audit data, patching, upgrades, and reducing the opportunity for human error.

Oracle autonomous database is a family of self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing cloud services. It’s the world’s first autonomous database, and it redefines database management by using machine learning and automation to eliminate human labor, human error, and manual tuning, reducing cost and complexity and ensuring higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency. Autonomous Database supports a complex mix of high-performance transactions, including reporting, batch, Internet of Things (IoT), and machine learning in a single database. This simplifies application development and deployment and enables real-time analytics, personalization, and fraud detection.
