With Autonomous Database you do not need to configure or manage any hardware or install any software. Autonomous Database handles provisioning the database, backing up the database, patching and upgrading the database, and growing or shrinking the database. Autonomous Database is a completely elastic service.
At any time you can scale, increase or decrease, either the compute or the storage capacity. When you make resource changes for your Autonomous Database instance, the resources automatically shrink or grow without requiring any downtime or service interruptions.
Autonomous Database is built upon Oracle Database, so that the applications and tools that support Oracle Database also support Autonomous Database. These tools and applications connect to Autonomous Database using standard SQL*Net connections. The tools and applications can either be in your data center or in a public cloud. Oracle Analytics Cloud and other Oracle Cloud services provide support for Autonomous Database connections.
