DBA and IT Challenges: The Numbers
Database management workloads are approaching a tipping point. According to a recent Oracle survey of database administrators, 39 percent of DBAs are managing 50 or more databases, and 95 percent of those IT professionals manually create and update these databases. A high proportion of DBAs say they experience some type of unplanned downtime over the course of their careers, and most of these individuals struggle to coordinate multiple management and backup tools.
Being able to guarantee prompt, reliable service is a big deal for a company that helps millions of people all over the world connect with leading entertainment, business, mobile, and high-speed internet services. AT&T is also one of the world’s largest providers of pay TV services. AT&T’s massive redeployment of Oracle Databases will be provisioned entirely from Oracle Cloud Platform, including Oracle Database Exadata Cloud Service.
AWS Can’t Beat Oracle Cloud
Some companies subscribe to cloud services from a commodity cloud vendor, and then realize that they need advanced platform capabilities that the vendor can’t offer. Commodity cloud vendors such as Amazon offer generic infrastructure services that are useful for basic computing activities, but performance is lacking for enterprise workloads. In addition, Amazon customers quickly find that their cloud deployments lack compatibility with on-premises deployments, leading to increased complexity and hidden operational costs.
Three Essential Ingredients of Data Warehouse Automation
- Easy: With Oracle’s new autonomous database, creating a data warehouse is a simple “load and go” process.
- Elastic: Both computing and storage capacity are instantly elastic. That means you can scale up or down instantly, with no downtime.
- Fast: Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud is fast because it is built on Oracle Exadata and Oracle Database, a highly optimized and proven database infrastructure.
For many customers, adopting Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is just one step on a multi-step journey. Oracle offers a complete path to the cloud that encompasses integrated IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS solutions. You can simplify your IT infrastructure and minimize capital investments by utilizing Oracle Cloud services for infrastructure, data management, applications, and business intelligence.
