Microsoft Corp. and Oracle Corp. on Wednesday announced a cloud interoperability partnership enabling customers to migrate and run mission-critical enterprise workloads across Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud. Enterprises can now seamlessly connect Azure services, like Analytics and AI, to Oracle Cloud services, like Autonomous Database. By enabling customers to run one part of a workload within Azure and another part of the same workload within the Oracle Cloud, the partnership delivers a highly optimized, best-of-both-clouds experience. Taken together, Azure and Oracle Cloud offer customers a one-stop shop for all the cloud services and applications they need to run their entire business.
How To Monitor All Your Autonomous Database Instances
The latest release of Autonomous Database (which, as you should already know, covers both Autonomous Data Warehouse and Autonomous Transaction processing) has brought integration with Oracle Management Cloud (OMC). This is great news for cloud DBAs and cloud Fleet Managers since it means you can now monitor all your Autonomous Database instances from within a single, integrated console.
