Oracle Expands Cloud Autonomy, Data Centers & SLAs

Oracle is expanding the autonomous capabilities of its cloud platform this week, as well as opening new regions, and providing uptime guarantees.

Following on its announcement of the Oracle Corp. (Nasdaq: ORCL) Autonomous Database in September, the company on Monday expanded its Oracle Cloud Platform Autonomous Services to all its Oracle Cloud Platform services. As with the database, the cloud platform now automatically handles security and maintenance functions that previously required human intervention, including tuning, patching, backups and upgrades.

Oracle Cloud Platform is incorporating additional autonomous capabilities specific to application development, mobile and bots, app and data integration, analytics, security and management, the company says.

"The future of tomorrow's successful enterprise IT organization is in full end-to-end automation," Thomas Kurian, Oracle president of product development, said in a statement from Oracle CloudWorld in New York. "At Oracle, we are making this a reality." (See Oracle Extends Autonomous Capabilities Across Cloud Platform.)

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.
