Oracle CTO Larry Ellison Tuesday unveiled the latest component of Oracle's autonomous database, autonomous transaction processing.
Oracle first introduced its autonomous database in October of last year, in conjunction with an automated cybersecurity system. Then in March, the Silicon Valley giant announced the general availability of the Autonomous Data Warehouse Cloud, a service that uses machine learning to enable fast and simple data warehousing. With the introduction of the autonomous transaction processing service, the database also optimizes itself for transactions, Ellison explained Tuesday.
"Between these two systems," he said, "the Oracle autonomous database now handles all of your workloads."
Ellison compared the new service to Amazon Web Services' Aurora, claiming that it is 12x faster, even with "Aurora at its best." Ellison said, "The second you have a mixed workload on Aurora, we're 100 times faster."
