Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure (ODSA), is an Oracle managed service that makes it much easier for Azure users to provision, access, and operate enterprise-grade Oracle Database services in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with a familiar Azure-like experience.

As a leader in multicloud, OCI is committed to making its best and most remarkable technologies available in other clouds and breaking the barriers to multicloud. Today, we’re pleased to announce that we’re adding MySQL HeatWave to the set of services available on Oracle Database Service for Azure.

MySQL HeatWave, Oracle Database, and Azure

MySQL HeatWave extends the current selection, including Oracle Autonomous Database, Oracle Exadata Database, and Oracle Base Database services. ODSA simplifies the cross cloud private network connection, security, observability, and operational management in the Oracle managed services to remove the complexity of implementing a multicloud solution. It reduces subject matter experts' inter-dependencies and improves the IT application implementation time-to-market.

MySQL HeatWave is a fully managed database service, powered by the integrated HeatWave in-memory query accelerator. It’s the only cloud database service that combines transactions, analytics, and machine learning services into one MySQL Database, delivering real-time, secure analytics without the complexity, latency, and cost of ETL duplication.

With the MySQL HeatWave Service for Azure, Azure customers can use MySQL HeatWave running on OCI as if it was an Azure resource. Users connect their Azure subscriptions to their OCI tenancy in just a few clicks. The service establishes the link between the two cloud environments and can federate Azure active directory identities. Azure users can seamlessly provision and use this service in a split-stack architecture, running their applications in Azure and MySQL HeatWave on OCI with no charge for data ingress/egress.

You can also provision a MySQL Database instance without the HeatWave cluster using Oracle Database Service for Azure, defining the system shape, MySQL version, data storage size, and network configuration, and then update the instance to MySQL Heatwave later without moving the data or changing the application.

Oracle Database Service for Microsoft Azure integrates OCI metrics, logs, and events with Azure Application Insights, Azure Event Grid, and Azure Log Analytics to provide the unified MySQL HeatWave telemetry and monitoring experience.

The service also offers a collaborative support model to simplify the issue resolution process that can be initiated with either Microsoft or Oracle.
