What is difference between Autonomous Database (ADB/ATP/ ATP-Dedicated) or traditional oracle enterprise database?

and we said...

Maria did a blog post summarising all the differences here - this has links to videos and whitepapers. I recommend you read it.

But briefly

Traditional database
- *YOUR* job to create it, back it up, patch it, setup high availability, decide on indexing, buy more CPUs if you need them, etc etc

Autonomous database
- *OUR* job to create it, back it up, patch it, setup high availability, decide on indexing, etc etc
- YOUR job is .... use it.
