Oracle Database 12c: New Features For Administrators

Oracle Database 12c: New Features For Administrators (5 days)


This is a multi-volume textbook kit that covers the major new features of the Oracle 12c database of interest to database and other enterprise administrators.

The single most important new capability introduced with the Oracle 12c release of the database is the multitenant database feature. With this technology, the Oracle database can be a full participant in a cloud computing-based application architecture. Even a traditional on-premise systems architecture can be dynamically and dramatically transformed as a result of this feature. Many traditional and new database features are enhanced or introduced when a multitenant database configuration is used.

Introduced with the Oracle 12c release of the database are many advanced storage administration features. Some of these new features support various forms of in-memory storage, advanced compression and other capabilities targeted for high-performance environments and massive scalability.
