This post covers the overview of Oracle Database on Cloud including various Database Offerings & Database Edition available in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).
1. In Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Database is divided into two types:
a) User-Managed Database
b) Autonomous Database
1. User-Managed Database: In User-Managed database, DBA task such as patching, cloning, backup & restore is managed by customers. It is further divided into three types.
- Virtual Machine DB Systems: Database is running on Virtual Machine & It supports both 1 -node, and 2-node RAC DB systems on Virtual Machine.
- Bare Metal DB System: Database is running on Bare Metal & It only supports only 1-node DB systems (RAC is not supported)
- Note: Where A bare metal server is a “single tenant” physical server. This means that the server is dedicated to one customer and not shared between multiple customers & A virtual server is hosted in a “multi-tenant” environment. This is where multiple virtual servers share the same physical hardware.
- Exadata DB System: Exadata DB systems runs on Exadata on Cloud and consist of a quarter rack, half rack, or full rack of compute nodes and storage servers, tied together by a high-speed, low-latency InfiniBand network and intelligent Exadata software and it is always a 2-node RAC only.
2. Autonomous Database: Oracle Cloud Infrastructure‘s Autonomous Database is fully managed by Oracle such as patching and another administrating task. Autonomous Database is further divided into types:
- ADW: ADW stands for Autonomous Data Warehouse and used for decision support or data warehouse workload.
- ATP: ATP stands for Autonomous Transaction Processing and used for a transactional workload.

All 1- node RAC DB systems support the following Oracle Database editions:
- Standard Edition
- Enterprise Edition
- Enterprise Edition – High Performance
- Enterprise Edition – Extreme Performance (required for 2-node RAC DB systems)
