Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

As with any cloud service, the main advantage of Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing is the ability to scale up (and down, if required), thus reducing initial costs. You can start with a simple 1 CPU and 20Gb instance for free, and scale up to meet your requirements with some simple clicks. You do not have to worry about administrative tasks (OS installation and configuration, storage provisioning, software installation/upgrade, maintenance, etc.).

It is best suited for batch jobs processing databases and maintains on-premise infrastructure. It will only be less appropriate if the organization or company is completely running databases on a managed cloud platform as there are available tools for monitoring systems health. However, it is also useful for cost optimization for cloud database users. It is also beneficial to operations to easily pinpoint the performance related issue and prevent ping pong with developers.

Pros

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • Quick and simple to deploy (less than 5 steps to create a new instance)
  • No administrative tasks (backup, re-sizing) required
Lisandro Fernigrini | TrustRadius Reviewer

SolarWinds Database Performance Analyzer

  • Top N SQL queries.
  • Outstanding UI for rapid examination and drill down to detail data.
  • Intuitive UI design - better than any other product in its category.
  • Enabled us to immediately shift DB related performance matters first to developers so that our DBA's can focus on more important matters.

Cons

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • None significant to be mentioned

  • Can't think of any feature or ops related issues. Prior complaints have all been addressed in newer updates.
  • Only main complaint is cost -- we would adopt for other servers if the incremental cost wasn't so high for a few additional instances (we have 3 servers we would like to use DPA with, but can't justify the x3 pricing per instance).

It allows us to have peace of mind that the servers are constatnly being monitored around the clock and that we can always go bcak in time and research if we missed something.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

Both 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.

Idera looks like they are headed to a similar end product. However, their product is not as mature. Solarwinds Database Performance Monitor is an acquisition of an already mature product upon which they added value by integrating it with their extensive software base and their amazing community. I haven't found any other products that do wait based sql analysis.

Return on Investment

Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing

  • Using the free tier allows me to develop and test the APEX app with no cost.
  • Changing it from a single-user to a department tool is simple.

  • DPA is licensed per instance analyzed so, for us, only the higher priority database servers are monitored.
  • DPA is not dependent on Orion, but integrates with it. This means if you don't need all of the cool features of Orion and want to just pay to monitor the database instances then you can install it all by itself.
