Oracle preps autonomous database at OpenWorld

Oracle preps autonomous database at OpenWorld

IMHO The new database version will probably use the Oracle Management Cloud (OMC) to monitor and tune, the OMC has machine learning using big data analytics to aid performance tuning. Since version 10g, the Oracle DB has had self-tuning capabilities, i.e. auto application of SQL profiles using the Tuning pack license. Everything else was done by the DBA, perhaps with advice gained from the Tuning Advisor, but the DBA had to make the final call. Probably the self-tuning has been carried further in the coming version with expertise from machine learning. Regarding AWS databases, I would agree that the AWS capability of performance insights is only at its starting stage so databases on AWS Aurora cant really be compared to what Oracle will offer in this regard.

No-Win, No-Fee Oracle Licensing Review Offer for your Oracle usage

Dear Friends,

As we all know, Oracle Licensing is a complex subject and a lack of its complete understanding can attract millions of dollars in contractual non-compliance during an official audit. Non-compliance on Oracle Licensing can be due to several reasons, including vague rules and inaccurate analysis. If your Oracle licensing is not fully managed or optimised, then you also risk over-paying for support costs that could have been avoided. Over-Licensing or Under-Licensing can both bring large financial exposure for an Oracle end-user organisation. 

Exclusively for the members/friends of our 'Oracle Senior DBA' group on Linkedin, we have negotiated with 'Konnagar Limited' >> << to help you reach a safe harbor with compliance on Oracle licensing. Konnagar Limited won the Gold Award from UK-OUG for 'Independent Services', and is run by Sibaji Dey Choudhury - an ex-Oracle License Auditor with 12+ years of Oracle licensing experience across 300+ customers. 

How is this a good proposition for you? Sibaji will run a complimentary Oracle License Review, exclusively for the members/friends of the group (you need not be a member, just mention the group). If any contractual non-compliance (and therefore, commercial exposure) is identified, only then you pay the fee for the engagement. If no non-compliance is identified, then you DO NOT pay anything. Simple! 

Please note that Konnagar Limited is independent of any Oracle partnership and also does not resell Oracle licenses (or recommend resellers), and therefore has no conflict of interest. The only objective is to help you uncover non-compliance arising out of mismanagement of Oracle Licensing. 

Please reach out to to register your interest. This offer is on a 'No-Win, No-Fee' basis exclusively for the members and/or friends of the 'Oracle Senior DBA' group, so please mention the group name in your email to them even if you are not a member.

Best regards, 

Porus Homi Havewala, 
Oracle Certified Master.
