IT giant Oracle has announced that Oracle Database 21c, the latest version of its converged database, is available on Oracle Cloud, including the Always Free tier of Oracle Autonomous Database.

Oracle Database 21c contains more than 200 new innovations, including immutable Blockchain tables, In-Database JavaScript, native JSON binary data type, AutoML for in-database Machine Learning (ML) and persistent memory store, as well as enhancements for in-memory, graph processing performance, sharing, multitenant, and security.

“Oracle Database 21c continues our strategy of delivering the world’s most powerful converged database engine,” said Andrew Mendelsohn, Executive Vice President, Database Server Technologies, Oracle. “It provides leading JSON document processing performance. It provides breakthrough operational database performance with Intel Optane Persistent Memory support. It provides industry-leading analytic database capabilities with new self-managing in-memory column store, highest performance graph processing, and AutoML for simplest Machine Learning model development.”

In addition, Mendelsohn added that it provides immutable Blockchain tables for tamperproof SQL tables. “Competing vendors require separate JSON document, operational, analytic, graph, ML, Blockchain databases and services to support these capabilities. Oracle’s converged database approach makes developers far more productive when building new applications, and makes it easy to later evolve applications to meet new business requirements,” he said.
