Oracle has announced the availability of Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer. This new offering combines the latest Oracle Database with the fastest Oracle Database platform Exadata – delivered as a cloud service in customer data centers. It would eliminate database management and capital expenditures while enabling pay-per-use and elastic consumption of database cloud resources.

Oracle ExadataOracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer would deliver a simple and fast transition to a cloud model with typical deployments taking less than a week. Existing applications in a data center can simply connect and run without requiring any application changes – while data never leaves the customer’s data center.

This would be ideal for enterprises that find it challenging to move their mission-critical database workloads to the public cloud due to data sovereignty and regulatory requirements, security and performance concerns, or because their on-premises applications and databases are tightly coupled.

“Exadata Cloud@Customer has been successfully deployed at hundreds of customers, including large financial services companies, telecoms, healthcare providers, insurers, and pharmaceutical companies worldwide to modernize their infrastructure and lower costs by up to 50 percent,” said Juan Loaiza, executive vice president, mission-critical database technologies, Oracle. “We are now bringing Oracle Autonomous Database to customer data centers – freeing DBAs and developers from mundane maintenance tasks and enabling them to innovate and create more business value.”

Serverless Architecture

Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer enables organizations to move to an environment where everything is automated and managed by Oracle. Autonomous operations include: database provisioning, tuning, clustering, disaster protection, elastic scaling, securing and patching, which eliminates manual processes and human error while reducing costs and increasing performance, security and availability. The serverless architecture automatically scales to match changing workloads, providing “true” pay-per-use.

“Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer combines the game changing capabilities of the revolutionary Exadata X8M platform with Oracle’s most advanced machine-learning-powered database and its second-generation cloud control plane for a true enterprise-grade database cloud experience on-premises,” said Carl Olofson, Research Vice President, Data Management Software, IDC. “Every business has a set of ISV and home grown applications that they depend on to run all aspects of their business from finance to manufacturing, HR, orders, procurement, and operations. For companies serious about running these types of critical Oracle-based applications in an on-premises enterprise database cloud, Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer is currently the most advanced offering in the market today.”

Exadata Cloud@Customer

Customers can leverage Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer to consolidate thousands of databases and run the converged, open Oracle Database for multiple data types and workloads including Machine Learning, JSON, Graph, spatial, IOT and In-Memory, instead of deploying fragmented special-purpose databases.

With Oracle Autonomous Database on Oracle Exadata Cloud@Customer, organizations can work “with up to 7x larger databases, achieve greater database consolidation, and improve performance with up to 12x more SQL IOPS, 10x more SQL throughput, and 98 percent lower SQL latency than RDS on AWS Outposts.” Oracle Autonomous Database on Exadata Cloud@Customer would reduce customers’ infrastructure and database management by up to 90 percent because they only have to focus on the schemas and data inside their databases, not on running the underlying database infrastructure.

Samsung SDS is the largest enterprise cloud solutions provider in Korea, delivering data-driven digital innovations to customers in 41 countries worldwide. “Back in 2010, we adopted the first Exadata platform to improve a display manufacturing system,” said Dr. WP Hong, CEO, Samsung SDS. “Now 10 years later, we have implemented nearly 300 Exadata systems for our customers in manufacturing, financial services, construction and engineering, and public and private sector services.
