organizations today, the amount of additional storage hardware purchased each year
in response to data growth shows no sign of slowing down. Regulatory
requirements have changed how and why organizations are required to store more information for longer periods of time. Simply adding more storage isn't a cost effective approach against real world budget
restrictions or when its impact on user response times and application performance takes a nose dive.
Nearly 40% of the respondents from a recent IOUG survey indicate that
reducing costs was their primary reason behind implementing a tiered
storage approach in their Oracle Database environment. But even with the right storage
and compression capabilities, deciding which data should reside where and when
to migrate data from one storage tier to another remains a real world challenge.
Forward-looking IT organizations are adopting advanced strategies for managing
data growth using innovative database technologies that automate compression and
storage tiering while improving database performance.
Database 12c provides new features and options that optimize database storage
and work together to help you implement an Information Lifecycle Management
(ILM) solution in order to manage data growth cost effectively and comply with new regulatory requirements for data retention and
