    DBAs will be fired.. ? It’s the end of DBAs because of the Autonomous Databases..?

    Obviously not.. believe it or not.. now the DBAs will have more important role in enterprises.

    I have +17 years as Oracle DBA and I could tell you how this profession have been evolving, having a tendency of:

    • More elaborated and advanced features.. that’s the essence of every new release..
    • More automated tasks release by release.. the DBAs and Enterprises must realise real advantages to perform early or convenient upgrades before the “Non support of Release” force them to do it..
    • and above all.. how to become DBA each day is even more complex than before.. and who will be affected by this.. this is the main point I want to focus in this short article.

    Oracle Database 18c the next generation of the industry-leading database.

    Oracle introduces the world's first autonomous database cloud. Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud eliminates complexity, human error, and manual management, helping to ensure higher reliability, security, and more operational efficiency at the lowest cost.

    At the previous paragraph I have highlighted the sentences "database cloud" & "Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud", it means.. when we are talking about Cloud Databases, Oracle Autonomous Database Cloud is just another different kind of Cloud database service, so, in this article we will call it simply as "Cloud Databases".
