Overview of Autonomous Database

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure's Autonomous Database is a fully managed, preconfigured database environment with two workload types available, Autonomous Transaction Processing and Autonomous Data Warehouse. You do not need to configure or manage any hardware, or install any software. After provisioning, you can scale the number of CPU cores or the storage capacity of the database at any time without impacting availability or performance. Autonomous Database handles creating the database, as well as the following maintenance tasks:

  • Backing up the database
  • Patching the database
  • Upgrading the database
  • Tuning the database

Workload Types

Autonomous Transaction Processing

The Autonomous Transaction Processing workload type configures the database for a transactional workload, with a bias towards high volumes of random data access. For a complete product overview of Autonomous Transaction Processing, see Autonomous Transaction Processing. For Autonomous Transaction Processing tutorials, see Quick Start tutorials.

Autonomous Data Warehouse

The Autonomous Data Warehouse workload type configures the database for a decision support or data warehouse workload, with a bias towards large data scanning operations. For a complete product overview of Autonomous Data Warehouse, see Autonomous Data Warehouse. For Autonomous Data Warehouse tutorials, see Quick Start tutorials.
