Likelihood to Recommend
II would recommend Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse to someone looking to fully automate the transferring of data especially in a warehouse scenario though I can see the elasticity of the suite that is offered and can see it is applicable in other scenarios not just warehouses.

If your company's value is not increased by maintaining databases, you should use the ATP.
Read full review Pros Very easy and fast to load data into the Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse Exceptionally fast retrieval of data joining 100 million row table with a billion row table plus the size of the database was reduced by a factor of 10 due to how Oracle store[s] and organise[s] data and indexes. Flexibility with scaling up and down CPU on the fly when needed, and just stop it when not needed so you don't get charged when it is not running. It is always patched and always available and you can add storage dynamically as you need it. Read full review Quick and simple to deploy (less than 5 steps to create a new instance) No administrative tasks (backup, re-sizing) required Read full review Cons It is very expensive product. But not to mention, there's good reasons why it is expensive. The product should support more cloud based services. When we made the decision to buy the product (which was 20 years ago,) there was no such thing to consider, but moving to a cloud based data warehouse may promise more scalability, agility, and cost reduction. The new version of Data Warehouse came out on the way, but it looks a bit behind compared to other competitors. Our healthcare data consists of 30% coded data (such as ICD 10 / SNOMED C,T) but the rests is narrative (such as clinical notes.). Oracle is the best for warehousing standardized data, but not a good choice when considering unstructured data, or a mix of the two. Read full review Connectivity between ATP and Oracle Kuberentes Engine cluster seems to drop randomly The ATP could come in an even smaller shape as the smallest shape is already quite big . But if must be more than always free, as that version does have connectivity limitations about 20 connections Read full review Likelihood to Renew
It is really simple to provision and configure. Does not require continous attention from the DBA, autonomous features allows the database to perform most of the regular admin tasks without need for human intervention. Allows to integrate multiple data sources on a central data warehouse, and explode the information stored with different analytic and reporting tools. Read full review Usability
You get almost all the features of Oracle Database, including the ability to deploy APEX applications, without having to worry about system, storage or database configuration and maintenance, backups, etc. Also, you can start for free and move up adding resources as you need.

Understanding Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is really simple, and Autonomous databases are even more. Using shared or dedicated infrastructure is one of the few things you need to consider at the moment of starting provisioning your Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse.

As I mentioned, I have also worked with Amazon Redshift, but it is not as versatile as Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse and does not provide a large variety of products. Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse is also more reliable than Amazon Redshift, hence why I have chosen it

Azure SQL Database
and Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing offer a powerful and robust database platform. The advantage of Autonomous Transaction Processing is the ability to host APEX applications for free and without any special/complicated deployment or configuration process. Having a rapid development environment embedded for free was the main advantage for choosing Oracle as my cloud database provider.
Read full review Return on Investment Overall the business objective of all of our clients have been met positively with Oracle Data Warehouse. All of the required analysis the users were able to successfully carry out using the warehouse data. Using a 3-tier architecture with the Oracle Data Warehouse at the back end the mid-tier has been integrated well. This is big plus in providing the necessary tools for end users of the data warehouse to carry out their analysis. All of the various BI products (OBIEE, Cognos, etc.) are able to use and exploit the various analytic built-in functionalities of the Oracle Data Warehouse.
