Oracle Database 12c – a new kind of DB is ready for download :-)

We all know that Oracle has launched a cloud version of the Database and Oracle announced now that Oracle Database 12c is now available for download off the Oracle Technology Network.

where “c” stands for Cloud.  Its Oracle’s significant investments in delivering cloud-ready products.

Oracle Database 12c introduces a new, multitenant architecture that makes it easy to deploy and manage database clouds. Oracle 12c is a first multitenant database in the market.

“multi-tenancy” means – where multiple companies share the same hardware.  For example, Amazon’s cloud is actually its own IT infrastructure, rented out to whoever else wants to use it. That’s what makes cloud computing so affordable.

Oracle 12c can be called as “Container Database” – It’s function is to hold lots of other databases, keeping their data separate, but allowing them to share underlying hardware resources like memory or file storage.
12c is for software-as-a-service that let multiple customers access a single database. It’s also geared toward large enterprises who may have hundreds of Oracle databases. It would let them consolidate their databases onto less hardware, saving them money on that and making all of those databases easier to manage.

Some of the Innovative features in Oracle Database 12c are,

  • Pluggable databases—for consolidating multiple databases quickly
  • Automatic data optimization—for compressing data at a higher density—maximize resource efficiency and flexibility.
  • Improve database and application continuity.
  • Redact sensitive data
