Oracle Creates First Autonomous Database


Defined as "the world’s first self-managing, self-securing, self-repairing database cloud service," the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is based on new Oracle Autonomous Database. The Oracle Autonomous Database essentially patches, tunes, and updates itself. It is half the cost of Amazon Web Services which "cost more and do less."

The Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud still maintains Oracle Database's analytical capabilities, security features, and high availability minus the associated configuration, tuning, and administration. Therefore the new autonomous database requires zero operational administration on the customer’s part. This technology imparts cloud data warehousing that is easy, fast and elastic. Besides the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, there are several similar other services available for companies. They include Oracle Autonomous Database for Transaction Processing, Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database for fast, massive-scale reads and writes (commonly demanded by the Internet of Things), and Oracle Autonomous Graph Database for network analysis. These services share features with Oracle Autonomous Database services including:

"Self-managing: Eliminates human labor and human error to provision, secure, monitor, backup, recover, troubleshoot, and tune the database. Automatically upgrades and patches itself while running."

"Self-securing: Protects from external attacks and malicious internal users. Automatically applies security updates while running to protect against cyberattacks, and automatically encrypts all data."

Self-repairing: Provides automated protection from all planned and unplanned downtime with up to 99.995 percent availability, resulting in less than 2.5 minutes of downtime per month, including planned maintenance."

Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It's intended for anyone making interactive projects. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online
