Compression Advisor estimates compression ratio possible with Oracle Advanced Compression

What if you could estimate the compression ratio in your database environment to see how much Oracle Advanced Compression can reduce your storage footprint before you consider adding more storage?

If the biggest challenge facing your organization is managing data growth cost effectively, you'll need a better strategy for managing your database storage environment that doesn't involve throwing more storage hardware or administration at the problem.

With Compression Advisor, a FREE database tool from Oracle, you can use your real data to estimate the compression results you could realize when you deploy Oracle Advanced Compression Option in your database environment.

Find instructions for using Compression Advisor when you watch this quick overview about Oracle Advanced Compression. The Compression Advisor Package DBMS_COMPRESSION is included with Oracle Database 12c.

How do you manage data growth in your Oracle Environment?

In many 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.

Oracle 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 protection.

Register for an IOUG Webcast on Tuesday April 15th, to hear Kevin Jerigan from Oracle describe Oracle Database 12c Storage Optimization features and Oracle Intelligent Storage Protocol.

How to migrate from Microsoft SQL Server to an Oracle Database 12c centralized environment with ODP.NET

Recently the Federal Tax Service of Russia migrated from their Microsoft SQL Server environment to an Oracle Database 12c centralized environment with the help of ODP.NET.

The Federal Tax Ministry of Russia is a national government agency located in Moscow. It operates nine regional offices that oversee major taxpayers with a wide network of local offices that employ 140,000 people.The ministry is in the process of migrating from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle Database 12c technology and Exadata. Its goal is to centralize all fiscal data access, improve performance, and reduce storage costs, while continuing to keep its investment in a Microsoft .NET infrastructure.

Oracle Database 12c makes developing and deploying Oracle on Windows and .NET easier, faster, and more cost-effectiveBy using Oracle’s .NET components (ODP.NET), the tax ministry can adopt new Oracle Database 12c features for their .NET applications. The migration to Oracle so far is meeting their goal for centralized data access and provides 20x better performance with a tenfold reduction in storage costs.

Listen to this Database Insider Podcast Interview for more details about their migration from Microsoft SQL Server to Oracle Database 12c.

Tom Kyte writes about Oracle Database 12c Multitenant Option in Oracle Magazine

In the March issue of Oracle Magazine, Tom Kyte discusses Oracle Database 12c Multitenant option with Patrick Wheeler, Oracle Sr. Director of Product Management.

This exchange between two Oracle Experts explains how Oracle Multitenant option can save customers capital expenses by consolidating more applications per server and reducing operating expenses. 

Companies face enormous pressure to consolidate - to reduce floor space, power costs, and license costs and at the same time to realize the benefits of cloud computing and cloud-based agility, including rapid, low-cost self-service provisioning and delivery of standardized services. Its no longer a question of whether to consolidate but how to consolidate.

Oracle Multitenant is a new option for Oracle Database 12c that provides a multitenant architecture for consolidating databases and simplifying operations in the cloud.

You'll find more articles on Oracle Database 12c written by Tom Kyte in past issues of Oracle Magazine.
