Oracle Open World began last night and it is getting to look like a fun battle is going to start in the cloud infrastructure arena.

Yesterday’s keynote kicked off with oracle demonstrating its “Autonomous Database” 18c which reports to be a self administering database. A move that can only be described as a direct assault on Amazon Redshift, their new database leverages machine learning to deliver 99.995% reliability. We are curious to see how Oracle’s cloud team intends to drive that number down over time, and what effects the database has cross regionally as that does appear to be a talking point with many attendees.
