Oracle launches Autonomous NoSQL Database Cloud Service

Oracle launches Autonomous NoSQL Database Cloud Service

Oracle announced the availability of Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database.  This is the fresh and newest addition to the Oracle Autonomous Database portfolio.

Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database is a fully managed NoSQL Database service. It can handle NoSQL applications that require low latency, data model flexibility, and elastic scaling with massive-scale applications such as UI personalization, shopping carts, online fraud detection, gaming, and advertising.  Developers can focus on application development. They do not have to worry about basic infrastructure tasks such as managing servers, storage expansion, cluster deployments, software installation, or backup.

Application specific requirements or specifications such throughput and capacity can be demanded. Once requested these provisions are made, and resources are allocated and scaled accordingly to meet dynamic workload requirements. All these will be possible with the help of simple Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).

Executive vice president, Oracle Database, Andrew Mendelsohn, said, "We continue to leverage our revolutionary autonomous capabilities to transform the database market. Our latest self-driving database cloud service, Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database, provides extreme reliability and performance at very low costs to achieve a highly flexible application development framework."

According to the announcement the Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database offers lots of developer-friendly features that are Modern, Open and Easy to use. Modern features include key-value APIs including simple declarative SQL API and command line interfaces. Flexible data models for data representation including relational and ad-hoc JSON are few other features to highlight. The service supports a non-proprietary SQL language. It helps in delivering innovative interoperability between standard relational and standard JSON data models. Oracle claims that the application deployment does not bind users to Oracle by supporting the same application deployment in the cloud or on-premises. The service supports Software Development Kits (SDKs) in languages such as Python, Node.JS, and Java.

It can be noted that Amazon DynamoDB, a fully managed, multi-region, multi-master database, is another NoSQL database service that delivers reliable performance at any scale. It also provides features such as consistent single-digit millisecond latency, and offers built-in security, backup and restore, and in-memory caching.

Oracle now claims that Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database delivers a significantly more reliable NoSQL database with 99.95 percent availability and is up to 70 percent lower cost than Amazon DynamoDB for read-only workloads. Oracle Autonomous NoSQL Database service uses innovative machine learning and automation capabilities claim the announcement.

The Oracle Autonomous Database service runs on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the autonomous database portfolio is self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing to automate key management processes including patching, tuning and upgrading to keep critical infrastructure automatically running. Oracle Autonomous NoSQL now joins its other services such as Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse, launched earlier this year. All these database services are tuned to support specifics workload according to Oracle.

What do you think of this latest development? Which platform you will prefer? Is it Oracle's Autonomus Database or Amazon's DynamoDB?
