Build global-scale application using Globally Distributed Autonomous Databases [LRN3178]

Data and transaction volume in enterprises is exploding, and applications are required to be available 24x7. As a result, enterprise applications are adopting design patterns like distributed databases which have been used by many internet-scale applications. We discuss how customers are building global-scale applications that can scale to millions of transactions per second with petabytes of data and eliminate downtime. Oracle Globally Distributed Autonomous Database does all this while rendering strong data consistency, the full power of SQL, and support for structured and unstructured data.

Accelerate your Applications 10x with True Cache [LRN3186]

Many business applications use a caching tier to improve performance by adding a new object caching tier in front of a relational database. Applications are responsible for loading the data in the cache and invalidation using a separate API. A separate caching layer is required, which adds licensing, operational, and resource costs in addition to reducing data protection, data security, and availability based on the chosen caching tier’s features. Oracle True Cache is an in-memory SQL cache that automatically synchronizes with the backend database. It obviates the need for a separate object cache layer and removes the need for the application to keep the cache in sync with the same enterprise availability and security as an Oracle Database.
