Self-Driving Database

The "most-important component of our Gen2 cloud is our autonomous database," Ellison told OpenWorld attendees.

Oracle is betting big that customers want databases that use machine learning to operate themselves. That self-driving functionality frees administrators from the mundane operational duties that occupy much of their time, reducing labor costs and eliminating human error from the equation.

The autonomous technology builds off the inherent security and automation advantages of Oracle's Gen2 infrastructure, he said.

Since introducing its 18c database at last year's OpenWorld, the database pioneer has made a lot of progress in advancing and bringing to market that self-managing, self-patching, self-healing technology, Ellison said.

Early versions of autonomous databases ran on shared Exadata machines. But for the most security-conscious customers, Ellison announced the new option to provision dedicated Exadata machines running entirely isolated in its public cloud.
