Although there was a lot of excitement surrounding the announcement, there were also a lot of questions.
How does it work exactly?
When and where will it become available?
How will it impact the role of the DBA?
So, we thought it would be a good idea to share several videos to help address these questions and concerns.
In the first video, Juan Loaiza gives you a peek behind the curtain of the Autonomous Database. He explains how it delivers full end-to-end automation for mission-critical workloads, including automation in provisioning, patching, securing, monitoring, optimizing, and more.
In the second video, Cetin Özbütün shares details on the first Autonomous Database service to become available later this year, the Autonomous Data Warehouse. This service is extremely easy to use as you simply load data and begin running queries. Oracle will take care of everything else for you.
And finally yours truly explains which aspect of the DBA role will be done automatically (mundane custodial tasks), allowing the DBAs to spend more time innovating and helping the business to better leverage their data.
As we get closer the official launch of new services we will share more information. So stay tuned!
