For this sponsored Cloud Wars Live conversation, I spoke with Steve Daheb, Senior Vice President, Oracle Cloud, about the company’s Autonomous Database. Steve says Autonomous DB is growing by 100%, quarter by quarter, and thousands of customers are running on it. He highlights how the product eliminates human error: it’s self-driving, self-securing, and self-repairing. Steve says with machine learning and other technologies, you don’t need a room full of PhDs to figure this technology out. Oracle has done the hard work for you, so you can focus on what matters most for your company.

According to Steve, it’s all about the perimeter and protecting the network—but users are the new perimeter. 70% of breaches are still happening internally, and if data isn’t encrypted (which was the case with one financial institution), you can lose a hundred million records because of internal malpractice. Steve says these breaches wouldn’t have happened on Oracle’s watch; the databases would have been self-patched.

Later, Steve shares that Oracle is adding a new data center every 23 days. In the last six months, it’s been in Seoul, Mumbai, Sao Paulo, Zurich, Sydney and three DOD data center regions.

Finally, we talk about how some of the biggest companies in the world are using Oracle Cloud’s ERP. Biogen, Cisco, MGM, Walgreens, and Swiss Post are examples of business customers using Autonomous and Gen 2 together. Steve says it’s exciting to go into 2020 with this head of steam around Autonomous Database, with EVP of applications development Steve Miranda leading the charge.
