Release Notes

Autonomous Database with dedicated Exadata infrastructure: Auto scaling available for databases

  • Services: Database
  • Release Date: March 18, 2020

Autonomous Databases using dedicated Exadata infrastructure now have the ability to automatically scale OCPU cores. The auto scaling feature allows your database to use up to three times the current base number of OCPU cores at any time. As demand increases, auto scaling automatically increases the number of cores in use. Likewise, as demand drops, auto scaling automatically decreases the number of cores in use. For more information, see CPU Scaling in the Overview of Autonomous Database.
